The Blackadder Raw Cask whiskies are complete cask whiskies bottled containing cask sediment.
Blackadder’s philosophy is very simple – they believe that the Cask is King. Sixty to seventy percent of the flavors in a whisky are taken up slowly from the cask as the spirit lies maturing in the warehouse. The action of changing temperature draws the spirit in and out of the cask. Every cask is unique, with its own fingerprint. This is why they bottle most of their whiskies from single casks. They don’t believe in chilling or otherwise heavily filtering their whiskies, and they never, repeat never, add caramel coloring and flavoring to their spirits. They have always believed the personalities of their whiskies are colorful enough.

Founded in 1919, Chateau Garreau sits at the heart of the golden triangle of Armagnac – producing the First Grands Crus of Grand Bas Armagnac. The Chateau also has the only underground cellar in the Bas Armagnac region. Distillation uses a SIER continuous column still which dates from the year of the company’s foundation. This Armagnac was matured in a new Gascon Oak cask, produced by the local cooper, Batholomo. Also known as the Gayrosse estate, Chateau Garreau’s vineyard extends over 26 hectares, straddling the departments of Landes and Gers. Its location, at the heart of Bas Armagnac, near the magnificent medieval city (thirteenth century) of Labastide d’Armagnac, makes it one of the most beautiful jewels of Armagnac.
