Character Goatson
The Austrian Maverick’s Whisky.

After gaining critical acclaim worldwide for his one of kind wines like Opitz One, a sweet red wine made from air-dried Zweigelt grapes, Willi Opitz has become one of the main players in the mini-boom of small craft Austrian wines that the world has had the pleasure of discovering lately.

There is no story of generations here because Opitz was in a completely different business a good decade ago. He left his corporate lifestyle and established a vineyards and a winery near the town of Illmitz in Burgenland. His estate encompasses 17 hectares that include 12 different varieties of plants and over 30 different wines in production.

But his ingenuity doesn’t stop at wine. One of his passions is to finish different casks of great single malts and bring them to life with exceptional new characteristics. That is why we’re offering you this astonishing new Scotch Whisky. The Homok casks were formerly used for Pinot Blanc grapes and to make sherry-like wine. This Scotch was finished in under a year and only 289 were ever produced. So sip with care.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
The twleve-pointed stag is called the "royal stag" called "the caberfeidh." Colin Kintail of the Clan Mackenzie, saved the life of King Alexander II of Scotland in 1263, when he was charged by a stag. The grateful king awarded him lands, and the right to use the royal stag logo in the Mackenzie family crest.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
