‘Time doesn’t matter, Taste matters’- prepare for a whisky experience that challenges your preconceptions.
Pushing the boundaries in the innovation of whisky making, the team at Seven Seals whisky in Stans, Switzerland, have taken the craft of whisky finishing to the next level, and developed a new technique to accelerate maturation.
Led by chemical engineer and entrepreneur Dr Dolf Stockhausen, the team at Seven Seals analysed the chemical interactions that take place during the maturation process. Following extensive experimentation they then developed a new process, which reduces the time required for maturation. Patents for their new technique are currently pending with the Swiss Federal Patent Office, and thus the full details must remain confidential.
The new formula allows Seven Seals to produce Single Malts in record time, and in an environmentally friendly and efficient manner, without sacrificing quality, aroma or character, an approach summed up in their strap line ‘Time doesn’t matter, Taste matters’.
For their inaugural releases Seven Seals have finished spirit produced by other Swiss whisky distillers. The Seven Seals collection of Swiss Single Malts features the Port Wood Finish, a dynamic whisky with hints of honey, dried fruit and gingerbread, the Peated Port Wood Finish, which delivers peat with spice, and the Sherry Finish, a sweet whisky with all the flavours of a Christmas market. All are bottled at natural colour, at 46%, and are also offered at Cask Proof.
Whisky distilling is a craft that has evolved over time. With increased production and reduced availability of the best casks, innovation is required to continue to improve quality. The team at Seven Seals believe they have found that elusive formula for the future of whisky. They have already been recognized for their efforts, winning the Innovation Award in the Swiss Whisky Awards.
Looking to the future Seven Seals are planning to build their own distillery at Luzern, Switzerland, and are aiming to start distillation in 2020.
For a chance to taste, Seven Seals Whisky is launching in the UK at The Whisky Show in London on the 28th and 29th September. Amongst others Seven Seals Whisky will be available from Master of Malt, Shop4Whisky and The Whisky Exchange. For more do visit 7sealswhisky.com, and check out their ad here.

We are excited to announce the release of our new Islay Edition.
Bottled at 47% the Angels’ Nectar Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Islay Edition is dominated by a gentle island peat smoke, which on the taste is a touch more medicinal than the Rich Peat Edition. Exploring further reveals a biscuity sweetness and a hint of beeswax. This whisky has been matured for five years in former bourbon barrels.
Our intention with Angels’ Nectar is to release a series of small batch releases which showcase different styles of Scotch Whisky, something which takes time. Having more or less sold out of the Rich Peat Edition, as its successor we have selected a parcel of Islay single malt casks to bottle as our new peat smoke expression. Celebrating inconsistency we have bottled the Islay Edition as a single malt (as opposed to Blended Malt), at a higher strength, and in a new improved bottle.
Whilst there have been Angels’ Nectar single cask releases in Germany and the Netherlands, this is the first Angels’ Nectar single malt release in the UK. Following the lead of the Angels, as with previous releases, the Islay Edition has been bottled at natural colour and is non chill filtered.
For a chance to taste, Angels’ Nectar will be exhibiting at The Whisky Show in London on the 28th and 29th September, and at the Alhambra Whisky Festival, Stirling, on the 5th of October. Stockists of the new Angels’ Nectar Islay Edition, which has a RRP of £49.50, include Balliefurth, Drambusters and Shop4whisky. Export orders are also already en-route to L'Explorateur du Goût in France, Haromex in Germany and Whisky Tartan in Netherlands.
