St-Rémy Cask Finish Collection celebrates our Master Blender Cécile Roudaut’s expertise in maturing St-Rémy brandy in various types of casks.
This collection is true to St-Rémy’s heritage of distilling, aging and crafting elegant French grape brandies since 1886.
Five editions have been launched so far. Each of these rare expressions offer a unique tasting experience, a distinctive exploration of the encounter between French brandies and wood.
The first expression, “Finished in French Chardonnay Casks”, includes a maturation stage in French oak casks previously used for Chardonnay wines. This uniqueness brings fresh and fruity notes of citrus, vanilla and brioche to the brandy.
For the second release, “Finished in Cabernet-Sauvignon Casks”, the brandy has been matured in French oak casks previously used for French wines made from cabernet-sauvignon (70%), merlot and cabernet franc grapes grape varietals. This expression has notes of red berries, fresh butter, ginger and liquorice.
The “Finished in Barbados Dark Rum Casks” has been launched exclusively at the LCBO in Canada. This expression includes a maturation stage in oak casks previously used for Barbados dark rum. It’s sweet and fruity with an ideal balance, combining ripe banana and toast, followed by vanilla and hot spices. The oaky notes are well-rounded with a smooth finish.
The “Finished in Islay Scotch Whisky Casks“, exclusively launched at Dubai Duty Free, is matured in oak casks previously used for Islay single malt Scotch whisky. This expression is sweet with a gentle peatiness and hints of barley and citrus on the nose.
The latest expression “Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks“, includes a maturation stage in oak casks that previously held Oloroso Sherry, a fortified wine from the Jerez region of Spain. This specificity brings elegant notes of red fruits, currants, figs, dates, cooked and candied fruits.
