About this Chapter 7 Whisky

Blair Athol is one of Diageo's workhorse distilleries. Much of its malt whisky ends up in Bell's blended scotch. It's a beautiful distillery built in 1798 in Pitlochry. The majority of Blair Athol casks destined for blending are ex-bourbon barrels. It has a nutty character resulting from cloudy worts and short fermentation. Allowing controlled levels of solids to come across in the wash still adds a deep, rich meatloaf character.

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.
