COPERIES is a French Single Malt whisky
made in only one distillery.
It was born from a centuries-old know-how of the crafting of the most prestigious French brandy. First the distillation is doubly run in Charentais copper pot stills, giving a round and elegant malt distillate. Then the aging is made in French oak barrels, balancing new and old casks, for subtle spicy notes and silky tannins. The result is a floral and fruity whisky of an unequalled finesse.
COPERIES is a very old word for “harvest” in the local dialect. Hence its identity is purely French, and even more specifically “Charentais”.
The barley is grown, malted and brewed in France, then distilled and aged at Distillerie Merlet & Fils.
Distillers for five generations in Charentes region, Distillerie Merlet & Fils is well-known for its liqueurs, aperitifs and cognacs.
With COPERIES the family company starts an exciting new adventure.
