In total there are whisky from 70 casks in Dálvve Batch 02

The bourbon barrels (200 litres) was mainly delivered from Heaven Hill and Jack Daniels.

The bourbon casks (135 litres) are remade from bourbon barrels by Speyside Cooperage in Scotland,

The casks have been stored in a damp warehouse up until October 2014, reducing the alcohol strength. From October 2014 to August 2016 the casks were stored in a drier environment in Box warehouse No. 3.

On the 8th­­ ­– 9th of  December 2016 7 069 kg whisky with an average alcohol strength of 59,46 % was emptied into a vatting tank to marrying the cold winter spirit and increase the temperature before bottling

Alcohol strength was adjusted to predetermined 46 % ABV prior bottling.

Dálvve was bottled 2016-12-12 to 2016-12-15 in an amount of 14 208 btls.

We recommend letting Dálvve breathe for a short time in the glass before drinking. Feel free to add a few drops of water in order to enhance and bring the whisky’s aroma to life.
