The team at Compass Box Whiskies refer to themselves as Whiskymakers. "To us, a Whiskymaker is someone who feels a need and an obligation to make things better - to ask questions, to challenge, to experiment. When it comes to whisky and its enjoyment, we keep our minds open to new possibilities - new production processes, new combinations of flavours, new ways of sharing and enjoying great whisky."
They work with a range of partners to explore the interaction between maturing Scotch whisky and oak over the course of time. From sourcing the best cooperage oak in the world from the Vosges forest of France and the woods of Missouri, to individually sampling almost every cask they use in each of their blends, they are fanatical about quality and believe that every stage of the process has the potential to add to the finished blend.
Asyla is the ultimate ‘everyday,’ ‘before dinner’ or ‘Sunday afternoon’ Scotch whisky. With just a splash of chilled water, the combination of soft, sweet grain whiskies and elegant, refined Highland malts found in Asyla epitomise the idea of “deliciousness” in the world of Scotch whisky.
