Whisky, besser gesagt Rare Whisky, also besonders seltener Whisky. Das ist unser Metier. Single Cask, also Einzelabfüllungen, in Fassstärke, also ohne Wasserzusatz und mindestens 20 Jahre im Fass gelagert. Das ist unser Credo.

Als unabhängiger Abfüller sind wir stets auf der Suche nach besonders hochwertigen Whiskys, die zu unserer Philosophie passen. Ermöglicht wird der Kauf solcher Fässer durch die Unterstützung von ausgewiesenen Experten und durch ein engmaschiges Netzwerk von Brokern und Beratern.

Erst im Sommer 2020 haben wir das erste Fass, einen Ardbeg aus dem Jahr 1996 gekauft. Mittlerweile sind über zwanzig weitere Whiskys sowie eine Reihe anderer Spirituosen (Rum, Cognac, Armagnac) hinzugekommen.

Die Bandbreite erstreckt sich von sehr alten und extrem seltenen Whiskys der Premiumdestillen bis hin zu nicht minder reizvollen Abfüllungen von Brennereien, die vielleicht nur den Experten bekannt sind.

GourmetPool Rare Spirits

Eine Offenbarung für Whisky-Enthusiasten.
Eine Gelegenheit für Cognac/Armagnac und Rum Sammler

In a world where single malt whisky is constantly gaining complexity and depth, the art of cask management has become an essential part of whisky making. A good cask is a crucial player in the creation of an exquisite whisky.

Four decades ago, used American oak casks, formerly used for Bourbon, were the backbone of storage. At that time, demand for single malt was limited and the industry focused on cost savings and reuse. Today, however, our understanding of cask management has changed radically. At GourmetPool Limited Spirits, we are constantly striving to do justice to the personality of each cask. The aim is to discover and exploit this personality in order to create the unique flavour profiles that characterise our rare whiskies.

By adding first-fill or fresh-fill casks from different types of wood and with different previous uses - whether Sherry, Port, Madeira, Malaga, Bordeaux or similar - to our portfolio, we are able to develop the specific characteristics of our whiskies over time and cask type. This careful selection and deep understanding of the interaction of wood is fundamental to creating a product that is not only outstanding in flavour, but also tells a story of tradition and craftsmanship.

At GourmetPool Limited Spirits, each cask is a deliberate choice, a combination of science and art, guided by a vision to deliver the highest quality. This reflects our ambition to inspire connoisseurs with our passion for quality and our respect for the complexity of whisky.

Cognac Vallein Tercinier 53yo 1967/2021 Grande Champagne by GourmetPool Limited Spirits

With great joy and pride, GourmetPool Limited Spirits presents a particularly rarity: the Grande Champagne Cognac bottling from the year 1967, carefully matured over a period of 53 years until the year 2021.

This rare and admirable bottling is the result of the tireless dedication and profound know-how of the Vallein Tercinier family, whose roots extend far into the history of the cognac-making process. For five generations, starting in 1850, this family has cultivated the art of cognac production, based on a heritage that dates back to the 14th century. Their mastery is reflected in the high quality of their products, which the Tercinier family produces at their historic location, in the midst of the privileged terroirs of the Grande Champagne.

GourmetPool Limited Spirits has set itself the task of not only exciting connoisseurs and enthusiasts of the finest brandies with an exquisite selection of high-caliber whisky casks and first-class rum bottlings, but also. The cognac presented here is distinguished by its unparalleled quality, which can only arise from the distillation of the most exquisite fruits of wine production. The aroma and flavor profile of this noble drop convinces with a profound, fruity base, enriched with complex notes of grapes that promise a harmonious interplay of exquisite varieties even before distillation.

This outstanding bottling has also found recognition in the premium spirits world, as illustrated by the appreciation by specialist tasters. A particularly notable praise comes from Serge Valentin, a renowned expert in the scene, who awarded this exceptional cognac a score of 91/100 points on his platform Whiskyfun.com.

With this offer, GourmetPool Limited Spirits once again reaffirms its commitment to offering lovers of fine spirits products of unparalleled quality and remarkable history. We are convinced that this Cognac Vallein Tercinier from the year 1967, with its rich history and exquisite character, will be an adornment for any collection and will redefine the tasteful enjoyment of our clientele anew. https://gourmetpool.de/produkt/…

Cognac Vallein Tercinier 53yo 1967/2021 Grande Champagne von GourmetPool Limited Spirits

Mit großer Freude und Stolz präsentiert GourmetPool Limited Spirits eine ganz besondere Seltenheit: die Grande Champagne Cognac-Abfüllung aus dem Jahre 1967, sorgfältig ausgereift über einen Zeitraum von 53 Jahren bis ins Jahr 2021.

Diese seltene und bewundernswerte Abfüllung ist das Ergebnis der unermüdlichen Hingabe und des tiefgreifenden Know-hows der Familie Vallein Tercinier, deren Wurzeln sich weit in die Geschichte des Cognac-Herstellungsprozesses erstrecken. Seit fünf Generationen, beginnend im Jahre 1850, kultiviert diese Familie die Kunst der Cognac-Produktion, basierend auf einem Erbe, das bis ins 14. Jahrhundert zurückreicht. Ihre Meisterschaft manifestiert sich in der hohen Qualität ihrer Erzeugnisse, die die Familie Tercinier an ihrem historischen Standort, inmitten der privilegierten Terroirs der Grande Champagne, hervorbringt.

GourmetPool Limited Spirits hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, neben einer exquisiten Auswahl an hochkarätigen Whiskyfässern und erstklassigen Rum-Abfüllungen, auch Kenner und Liebhaber feinster Weinbrände zu begeistern. Der hier vorgestellte Cognac zeichnet sich durch seine unvergleichliche Qualität aus, die nur aus der Destillation erlesenster Früchte der Weinproduktion entstehen kann. Das Aroma- und Geschmacksprofil dieses edlen Tropfens überzeugt durch eine tiefgehende, fruchtige Basis, angereichert mit komplexen Noten von Weintrauben, die bereits vor der Destillation ein harmonisches Zusammenspiel erlesener Sorten versprechen.

Diese herausragende Abfüllung hat auch in der Premium-Spirituosenwelt Anerkennung gefunden, wie die Würdigung durch Fachverkoster illustriert. Ein besonders erwähnenswertes Lob stammt von Serge Valentin, einem renommierten Experten der Szene, der diesem außergewöhnlichen Cognac auf seiner Plattform Whiskyfun.com eine Bewertung von 91/100 Punkten verliehen hat.

Mit dieser Offerte bekräftigt GourmetPool Limited Spirits einmal mehr sein Engagement, Liebhabern edler Destillate und Erzeugnisse von unvergleichlicher Qualität und mit bemerkenswerter Geschichte anzubieten. Wir sind überzeugt, dass dieser Cognac Vallein Tercinier aus dem Jahr 1967, mit seiner reichen Geschichte und seinem exquisiten Charakter, eine Zierde für jede Sammlung darstellt und den geschmackvollen Genuss unserer Kundschaft aufs Neue definieren wird.

Tullibardine and the 90s into the new millennium
The end of the 90s was a silent witness to how the old walls, which until a few years ago vibrated with life and warmth, fell into a slumber. But the silence was not to last. The distillery, which reopened in the early years of the new millennium, brought back the tradition and craftsmanship that made Tullibardine a cherished name in the world of whisky.

The distillery, which proudly claims its independent Scottish heritage, draws its water from the Danny Burn, whose source lies in the ancient Achill Hills. This water, which is filtered through the Scottish soil for over 15 years, gives Tullibardine whisky its unique character, among other things.

Today, Tullibardine stands not only for the rebirth of the Scotch whisky industry, but also for the perseverance and passion with which the people of the Highlands cling to their traditions. The distillery is a symbol of the timelessness of Scotch whisky, a legacy that lay dormant in the second half of the 1990s, only to enter the new millennium invigorated and full of life.
12/03/24

Tullibardine in the 1990s:
In the rolling green hills of Perthshire, where the history of Scotland and the art of whisky making come together in a timeless setting, stands the Tullibardine distillery. A place where the water is so pure that King James IV chose it for the production of his royal ale. In the 1990s, a time of change and renewal, Tullibardine found a new voice to tell its stories - through the innovative and more contemporary development of its whisky.

The 1990s were an era of rediscovery for Tullibardine. After a period of silence, when the stills remained cold and the casks empty, the distillery came back to life. The new owners, with a deep respect for the past and a keen eye for the future, began to fill the old walls with fresh "spirit" and the casks with new life.

Tullibardine's ageing style during this decade was characterized by a return to traditional methods, combined with a distinct touch of innovation and hints of modernity. The whiskies from this period reflect the soul of the Highlands - robust and honest, yet with a subtle complexity that enchants the connoisseur.

Among other things, the single malts were often matured in selected bourbon casks, which had previously been allowed to soak up the sweet, vanilla notes of American whiskey, but still had a subtle spiciness that retained the sleek and elegant style. These casks were carefully selected and brought to Scotland, and then gave the Tullibardine whisky a soft, almost creamy texture that set it apart from others.

However, Tullibardine did not rest on the laurels of tradition, but rather dared to experiment with the use of sherry casks, which gave the whisky a rich, fruity depth and a dark, golden color. It was a play on fire and oak that produced a whisky that carried both the warmth of the Spanish sun and the pithy severity of the Scottish wind and rugged nature.

The 1990s also saw the introduction of vintage editions, a tribute to the best harvest years of the grain and also the respective casks, as well as the qualities stored in the casks beforehand. Each bottle told the story of a particular year, captured in a drop. The Tullibardine 1990, for example, is a testimony to this time - an 18-year-old single malt that matured in ex-bourbon casks and was bottled at a strength of 59.1%. A whisky that captured the essence of its era: bold and fearless - powerful and robust, but with an elegance that only time can give. Right up to releases such as the 1991 Tullibardine from our "GourmetPool Limited Spirits" house, which has matured for 30 years in ex-bourbon casks and is complex, multi-layered and elegantly dry with a spicy-sweet maturity, followed by a depth that is due to the long maturation in American white oak.

The 1990s were a time of new beginnings and renewal for Tullibardine, a time in which the roots were not forgotten, but new paths were taken. The whiskies from this period are like a bridge between the past and the future - they tell of the endurance of the land and the creativity of the people who cultivate it. They are a liquid legacy that still echoes in the glasses of connoisseurs today and provide an insight into times gone by. It is always exciting to see, smell and taste how years, generations, ageing styles and the duration of storage are reflected in the essence of life water in a glass.

Die Destille Ardbeg prägt bereits über zwei Jahrhunderten die Schönheit der schottischen Insel Islay. Gegründet im Jahr 1815 ist sie heute weltweit bekannt für seinen rauchigen und torfigen Whisky. Aber das war nicht immer so!

Zwischen 1981 und 1997 war die Destille nur sporadisch in Betrieb und verfiel langsam. Die Produktion war zu dieser Zeit stark eingeschränkt und es wurden nur wenige Fässer gefüllt.

Abfüllungen aus dieser Zeit sind entsprechend rar und bei Whiskysammlern und -liebhabern aus aller Welt begehrt.

Genau aus diesem Grund sind wir extrem stolz auf unsere erste Abfüllung: Ein 26 Jahre alter Ardbeg Single Islay Malt Whisky aus dem Jahre 1996 mit 52,8% ABV und der für Ardbeg typisch intensiven rauchigen und torfigen Note:
