In an era when many distilleries are moving towards no-age-statement (NAS) bottlings, multi-award-winning independent bottler That Boutique-y Whisky Company (TBWC) is taking the unprecedented step of going ‘the other way’ – adding age statements – in order to give consumers more information about its whiskies. Amongst the first releases to be announced are Girvan 52yo, Macallan 25yo, Ardbeg 12yo, Blended Whisky #1 35yo and Invergordon 43yo.

Speaking about the move to add age statements, TBWC’s Ben Ellefsen said, “This categorically doesn’t mean that we now believe that age is the most important thing about our whiskies. The most important thing is, and always has been, flavour – and we continue to make cask and parcel selections on that basis alone.”
He continued, “It’s not just super-punchy age statements we’ll be listing either. We’ve got some extraordinary whiskies in the pipeline with tiny age statements; a 3yo from Slyrs in Germany, a 6yo from a famous Islay distillery which has been matured in fresh Bourbon casks, and a heavily-peated 4yo Blended Malt that’s been matured in ultra-active Madeira casks to name but a few – these are all *awesomely* good whiskies, and are certainly fully mature despite the low age statements.”

He added, “We are also committed to revealing all the information we have on the breakdown of the ages of the various whiskies that make up each bottling as soon as the campaign for transparency is successful, and the EU legislation – which is at best a blunt instrument – is modified to allow us the freedom to do so.”
