After four years, the blend master personally oversees the perfectly delicate taste with the typical sweet aroma of freshly cut rye. After careful selection, only the highest quality rye distillate from the best casks has the honor of maturing for another three years, thus obtaining complexity and exceptional ﬁnesse. After bottling, bottles are numbered by hand. The manual numbering of the bottles allows knowing the limited number produced, making them unique and guaranteeing their premium quality.
