van Wees (The Ultimate)



Cask Strength

Single cask

The Dutch firm Van Wees has been in the wine and spirits business since 1921. How they ended up in the whisky world is a great story that also starts in that year with a sunken ship in the port of Rotterdam. Years later, Van Wees started their own bottlings in the series 'The Ultimate Single Malt Scotch Whisky Selection', simply The Ultimate. And since then around 1000 bottlings have appeared under that label. The company always tries to keep its bottles affordable.
