A broad range of tastes, age and price.
As an independent bottler, Archives goes to great lengths to ensure that the whiskies chosen are at their prime and ready to savor – always at cask strength and without dilution – so the real character of the aged spirit comes through. Therefore, the number of bottles is very limited.
The team at Whiskybase, based in the Netherlands, personally selects only exceptionally high–quality whisky. Archives has chosen a selection of whiskies reflecting a broad range of tastes, age and price. So there is something for everyone.
It’s not just what’s in the bottle that matters. Every bottle of Archives is individually numbered and provided with a handmade label before it reaches the customer. From start to finish it is a handmade product. Just as is should be.
