Cuvée Argot

Cuvée (Feb 2023)

Description

Inspired by Bordeaux’s greatest chateaux, the Cuvée Concept is the apogee of our radical, novel philosophy. By harvesting, distilling and maturing Irish barley farm by farm — each expressing its own distinct terroir-derived flavour profile — an unprecedented flavour library is achieved. By drawing on these building blocks, Head Distiller Ned Gahan can bring them together, layer by layer, to create the ultimate in complexity — where the whole is greater than simply the sum of the parts.

Cuvée: Argot is the exuberant little brother to the distillery’s flagship bottling The Cuvée. Inspired by Bordeaux once again, if The Cuvée is our Grand Vin, Cuvée: Argot is our Second Vin — our second wine — revelling in the same remarkable complexity, ground-breaking distillation & revolutionary transparency & traceability, but with a little less élevage in oak for freshness, vibrancy and drinkability.
