The process begins with aging in American white oak ex-Bourbon barrels and then finds its way into five different red wine casks use for Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Quintessence launches tomorrow at London's Selfridges and will be available at other select whisky retailers on August 11th.
