Matured for six years and six months in first-fill French Oak Apera casks from the Barossa Valley, we are proud to have created Chief’s Son's oldest whisky ever.
Having established a relationship with the distillery, we were given exclusive access to their test bed archives and, in a first for them, worked together to select and marry a number of small format casks of the same age.
