Bottling the unmatched taste experience of Lambay is possible only because of our best-kept secret and Master of Maturation, Mr. Yonael Bernard.

Yonael hails from a long line of Master Distillers within the world of cognac. That means, from a young age, he was surrounded by a shared zeal for distillation, nuances in aroma and the spirited possibilities of flavour.

Now it’s us who benefits from the maturation of his mastery, crafting a unique taste experience for all those who choose to uncork the secrets within our bottles.

A Unique Taste Experience.

“Cognac casks preserve intense aromas within each stave. We work closely with the Cellar Master in Camus to ensure the casks we receive are selected for how their aromas will blend and complement our whiskey. The cognac cask naturally delivers more intense fruit notes, aromas, and textures to our finished product.”

Master Blender

The Art of the Blend.

The superlative finish of Lambay is not only down to how we harness our expertise but also knowing when to let the wonder of nature thrive in the layers of the blend.

Lambay brings together the indulgent flair of cognac, one of the richest French Eaux de Vie and oak barrels, renowned for what they impart to liquid. The resulting liquid is endlessly elegant - resonant, fruity, at times woody, and with toasted notes and a whisper of spice.

Lambay’s air is rich in sea salt and unique pollens. It’s this beautiful atmospheric interaction that passes through the casks resting on the island. It has an oxidizing effect, albeit on island time, but it eventually shapes the liquid with notes of the local terroir: island botanicals, environmental compounds and an inimitable maritime brine note.

Our French oak casks are slightly more porous, allowing for more con- tact between the air and our whiskey. It’s a delicate balance to blend nature’s wild side with whiskey absorption but what results, is a striking sense of place in every sip.

Tasting Notes.

Nose: Warming vanilla, smooth oak, mature plums, green apples, hints of Iodine, and lingering rancio. Gently aromatic. A maritime breeze.

Taste: Exotic spices include saffron, ginger, and pepper turn to sweet pastry-like notes of almond, honey, and walnut. True to its maritime influence, iodine and salt linger with a smooth, pleasing mouthfeel. Ginger tangles itself with green fruits. Plum and apple are balanced against a cognac-cask finish.

Finish: Explosive long-lasting rancio fruit balanced with salt, pepper, and an elegant smooth lingering finish. Long-lasting sweetness with a good balance of oak and salt, a lingering mouthfeel yet elegant in the finish with hints of honey and ginger.
