For over 30 years, Juveniles Bistrot a Vins in the 1st arrondissement of Paris has been a crossroads for winemakers, spirits producers, writers and various sorts of affable hedonists from all over the world. Compass Box & Juveniles share a similar approach to good food and drink, seeking out integrity and not taking things too seriously. Both our businesses are obsessed with quality and provenance. Both like to do things in their own way. These common traits have made Compass Box and Juveniles good friends since the very first meeting between Tim and John years ago. We have collaborated with Tim on Juveniles whiskies several times For this Limited Edition,Tim asked us to create something ?. . . bright, smooth, not smoky. . . an assemblage perhaps between 12 and 15 years-old. . . ?. We?ve tried to give him all that an much more. This assemblage (we love Tim?s use of this wine word to describe whisky blending) comprises single malt whiskies from four distilleries, each bringing a distinctiveness to the whole.
Bottled at 46% ABV. Not chill-filtered. Natural colour.
Back in 2000, John Glaser believed there were too many companies making and selling Scotch whisky the same way. An American, transplanted to the UK and working for a large distiller, he wanted to do things differently to bring the joys of Scotch whisky to more people. So, he set up a different kind of Scotch whisky company, based on the long-lost model of the Scotch whisky blending house, but with a forward-looking approach and an unrelenting desire to create quality. He originally launched the business from his kitchen, but today, over a decade later, Compass Box has an office and Blending Room in London, its own stocks of maturing whiskies in Scotland, and just over a dozen employees. In an industry that has steadfastly remained committed to ?the way we?ve always done things?, at Compass Box we focus relentlessly on creativity, process innovations, and exploring the many ways we all can enjoy the pleasures of Scotch whisky. With more spectrum of flavour and style than any other spirit, we believe Scotch whisky is one of the world?s great drinks. We are here to help ensure it stays that way for generations to come.
