Share Holder 2016
Share Holder 2016 was the first edition intended exclusively for shareholders in Box Destilleri AB. In Box distillery, other shareholder sales were issued, but then with whisky produced by Scottish distilleries.
Share Holder 2016 is a lightly peated combination of whisky from bourbon barrels and new American charred oak. This release was the first bottling where the whisky was exclusively matured in 200 liter barrels.
78 % unpeated Pilsner malt. 22 % peated Pilsner malt. 78 % of the contents have matured in 140 liter Bourbon casks. 22 % of the contents have matured in 200 liter charred american oak barrels
Share Holder 2016 contains no artificial colouring and is non chill-filtered.
140 Liter Quater casks produced by Speyside Cooperage from newly emptied 200 liter Bourbon barrels. Casks of new american oak come from Kelvin Cooperage.
Until October 2014, our casks have matured in a damp warehouse, where they lost slightly more alcohol than expected. Since October 2014 until bottling, the casks have been maturing in a dry environment in warehouse number 3.
19/04/2016 801,1 kg of whisky with an average strength of 59,46% abv, was emptied into our blending tank. There we added water to reach the desired strength of 52% abv.
Share Holder 2016 was bottled 20/804/2016 providing 1990 bottles. The whisky was sold to the share holders via Systembolaget.
We recommend that Share Holder 2016 is allowed to breathe in the glass for a few moments to reach its peak. Add a few drops of water to help the aromas develop within the glass.
