Our wonderfully smooth and consistently complex Samuel Franklin whiskey is the result of our Solera aging process.
Solera is a process - originally used in Spain for aging wine - especially Sherry and Madeira. The process is now used in the spirits works. Her's how the process forks...
Oak barrels in three vertical tiers are filled with whiskey. After one year, half of the contents of the bottom barrels are removed, bottled and replaced with aged whiskey from the barrels above, which are then topped off with half of the contents of the top barrels. New whiskey is added only to the top barrels. This cascading continues and only the oldest whiskey from the bottom barrels, or Solera, is bottled. The whiskey in this bottle is aged for a minimum of one year.
