The Cooper Commemorative Edition is a single malt Highland Scotch Whisky, bottled at 46% without chill filtration or added colour. The Whisky was matured for 10 years in Bourbon barrels, then transferred to 5 Octaves for a further 2 years.
An Octave is an old style of cask that is 1/8 the size of the European standard cask, holding approximately 62L.
These Octaves were handmade by Master Cooper John Neilly (1952 - 2018), from wood sourced from larger casks - a recharred American Oak barrel, a French Oak Tawny Port, Premiere Cru Sauternes, Rum and Amarone casks.
The Cooper Commemorative Edition is limited to 360 numbered bottles and retails for €250 with half of all profits from the sale of this commemorative edition going to John’s widow, Liz.
