About Chapter 7 Glen Elgin 13 Year Old

Glen Elgin started operating in 1900 and for half a century the distillery was run with paraffin, without electricity. It's located in Elgin and belongs Diageo, contributing most of its production predominantly to White Horse blend. 90 hours of fermentation and slow distillation gives a distinctive fruitiness to Glen Elgin. It's very popular with Independent bottlers. Chapter 7 Whisky wanted to try something different and finished the contents of a bourbon hogshead in 3 octave casks. In this bottling you will experience a unique blend of Oloroso and Ruby Port wood finishes.

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.
