Distillerie Merlet & Fils debuts first whisky

Coperies is France-based Distillerie Merlet & Fils' very first whisky. The single malt’s stock bottle is nestled in a box with copper and black accents.

Distillerie Merlet & Fils, a company known for its liqueurs, aperitifs and cognacs and located in the Charentes region of France, has entered the whisky segment with the introduction of Coperies. A word from traditional Charentais dialect, coperies translates as moisson, or harvest.

The whisky is double distilled in copper stills in Charente, then aged in French oak casks; the first bottling is between 3 and 4 years old. Described as floral and fruity, Coperies has “subtle spicy tasting notes and silky tannins”.

Distillerie Merlet & Fils opted for French supplier Discoglass’ proprietary Sammy stock bottle, produced by Vetri Speciali. The facing label (Poly-Imprim’) is made from New Black FSC paper and decorated with copper hot stamping and raised varnish.

For the box (Papcart), white coated kraft paper glued onto solid board is printed black with touches of copper cold stamping. The solid areas of color are matte lacquered, while the text features a glossy lacquer.
