About Chapter 7's Chronicle Whisky

Chronicles are small batches from 3-6 casks that Chapter 7 Whisky repeat in their anthology over time. The whiskies come from their stocks of carefully selected, re-racked and finished casks. The whisky spent five years in refill bourbon hogsheads before spending a further three years in first fill bourbon barrels. This process carefully layers the ex-bourbon flavour profile onto this whisky, creating a stunning dram.

Chapter 7's taste has always been for whiskies aged in bourbon casks. With this whisky, they wanted to have a noticeable, but balanced bourbon wood-aged Islay malt. As they will be continuing the series, the next Chronicle may open new horizons with unexpected wood finishes.

This release won a Gold Medal at The Independent Bottlers Challenge 2020. And we can see why. It's superb.

Meet The Founder

Selim Evin

Selim Evin's love affair with whisky began as a teenager when he accompanied his grandfather on a trip to Scotland. Visiting various distilleries, he was fascinated by both the art of whisky making and the stories behind the whiskies. This early experience left an indelible mark on him, igniting a passion that would later earn him the nickname "Malt Chaser."

In 2013, he made the bold decision to leave a successful business behind and pursue his true calling. He founded Chapter 7, an independent bottler that combined his passion for whisky with his love for literature. The name "Chapter 7" was inspired by the seven ages of man from Shakespeare's works. It symbolises the stages of life that whisky goes through, each stage telling a different story.

Selim's curiosity, commitment to quality, and pursuit of unique whiskies shine through all his whiskies.
