Chapter 7 Scotch
The premise of the Swiss brand Chapter 7 is simple: each cask of whisky is unique and each one tells a story. The wood, age, temperature, location in the warehouse—everything makes a difference. Two casks in a distillery filled at the same time and sitting next to each other may taste notably different. Bigger single malt brands marry casks in large vats so that the master blender can create a consistent taste for the brand. Chapter 7, the brainchild of Selim Evin, was created with the belief that a cask of whiskey should remain singular to tell its own unique story. Selim travels to Scotland and Ireland to hand select single casks from different distilleries for custom bottling. Chapter 7 editions are bottled at cask strength and non-chill filtered to present the cask’s characteristics untouched.
