NEW ST-REMY CREATIONS
This year, St-Rémy launches two additions to the limited-edition Cask Finish Collection.
The expression “Finished in Sauternes Casks”, released as a limited edition of only 7 880 bottles, includes a maturation stage in oak casks that previously held Sauternes, French sweet white wine, made mainly from semillon and sauvignon grape varietals.
This new edition is available in the following domestic markets, Canada, Taiwan, Russia, Mexico and China as well as a few Global Travel Retail markets.
“Finished in Barbados Dark Rum Casks Batch N°2” is the follow-up to the original release in 2019. This second batch of only 4 600 bottles exclusively on sale through SAQ (Canada), includes a maturation stage in a new selection of oak casks that previously held Barbados dark rum.
