About Chapter 7 Whisky's Imperial 22 Year Old

lmperial Distillery's chequered history means it never had a chance to become established as a single malt brand. It's a story of bad timing.

Owners mothballed and reopened it several times in its hundred-year history. By the time single Malt was becoming popular in the 1970s, it was already committed to supplying their malt for blends. Single malt whisky came into its own in the 1990s. But Imperial was closed in 1998 and demolished in 2013 to make way for the new Dalmunach Distillery. So it missed the opportunity to get the accolades it deserves.

While it has not reached the cult status of Brora or Port Ellen. Its reputation continues to grow. There isn't much stock left and this cask is one of the very few left. This releases from Chapter 7 whisky is a unicorn bottle!

Single Cask Whisky from Independent Bottler Chapter 7

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.
