Single Malt Whisky Master Distiller
Tropical House Edition II
The whiskey matured for 5 years in the barrel (No. 375) Pineau des Charentes in the Tropical Garden in the Tropical House Frutigen.
Pineau des Charentes is considered a fortified wine and consists of lightly fermented grape must and eau-de-vie, or Cognac portions. As legend has it, Pineau matures in oak barrels. The specialty Vieux Pineau also acquires its complexity through overlong aging in oak barrels.
