About Chapter 7 Allt-a Bhainne 12 Year Old

Allt-a Bhainne is a silent hero for Chivas Brothers servicing as one of the lead malt whiskies in its Chivas Regal Blends. The distillery was built in 1975 and is not aesthetically one of the most beautiful in Scotland, operating with all the equipment in a single room with the mash tun at one end and the four stills at the other. Chapter 7 Whisky is no stranger to Allt-a Bhainne with its first ever release, a 19 year old bourbon hogshead that raised eye-brows in 2014 and received great reviews.

This particular cask has been Chapter 7's baby since 2016. They've been watching its maturation carefully and decided to give this extremely fruity whisky a twist by finishing it in one of their Caol Ila first fill bourbon casks. They cut this whisky to 49.7% alcohol by volume where we think it performs best and lets out all the aromas, making this dram very accessible to any whisky fan.

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.
