Seven Yards - Blended Scotch Whisky
Created in 1880 by Gaston Tessendier, the Distillery owns today an estate of more than 25 hectares in the heart of the most exclusive growth of the Cognac region: the Borderies. 4th generation Cellar Masters Lilian and Jérôme Tessendier, compose and blend the eaux-de-vie thanks to the expertise and daily attention of the whole team. By launching into the production of whisky, the company opens a new page in its history.
Seven Yards is a blended Scotch whisky made from wheat and barley. On his first visit to the Scottish distillery he works with, Jérôme Tessendier was impressed by the height of their cellars. The barrels can be stacked up to 7 layers high, which is roughly equivalent to 7 yards. Hence the name chosen for this blend.
It was first matured for 7 years in Scotland in old bourbon casks, then matured in France for 3 months in old oak casks that contained cognac. This whisky is not cold filtered, it has a natural color and no added sugar. It will seduce the amateurs by its notes of tobacco and prune, its grilled aromas, and on the palate its generosity and dry character. Nicely round, with woody notes and a spicy finish.
