  • Somerset Royal Alchemy 15 years old 42% 70cl
    The Somerset distillery matures the brandy in small oak barrels in one of our two bonded warehouses at the other end of the village from Burrow Hill. In the bond, the barrels lose the 'angel share' and absorb all sorts of flavours from the oak. Our colour is natural and from the wood. Over time the brandies soften and mellow. Different oaks affect the character in different ways, so a tasting in the bond is exciting as it is always full of surprises. Sometimes we bottle a barrel as 'single cask' - see the shop. Alchemy is slightly lighter than the Ten Year Old as it is matured in a slightly different barrel mix.

    Mellow, rich and smooth. Has finesse and an apple nose. Amazing.
