Taste 6 outstanding Michel Couvreur Whiskies in the comfort of your own home guided by Cellar Master Jean-Arnaud Frantzen.
The short version of the Michel Couvreur story: He was a Belgian-born whisky broker, who worked in Scotland in the 1960s.
Determined to fight against modernisation and cost-cutting in the scotch industry, he became an expert on cereals, heirloom grains, and tracking down old, rare, expensive sherry butts in Spain that took immeasurable amounts of time and significant money. In the 1970s he started to dig the beginnings of a labyrinthine cellar in the hills of Burgundy (France) and ageing whisky from Scotland in hard-to-find barrels from the Sherry region of Spain.
For many years, the Couvreur whiskies have been difficult to find. Couvreur had died and it was assumed his unique approach was forever gone. This was luckily not true, though Couvreur passed away in 2014. Jean-Arnaud Frantzen, Couvreur’s assistant since 1997, is continuing this ambitious project, while Michel’s years of experience have been passed down not just to Frantzen but also to Couvreur’s wife, daughter, and son-in-law, who all continue to be active.
