Whether served neat, on the rocks, or stirred into a cocktail, whiskey is often praised as the finest spirit in the world. On paper it might sound like a simple concoction—water and grain, fermented by yeast, then aged in a wood cask—but whiskey is about so much more than its physical ingredients. During the middle ages, Europeans called it aqua vitae, or “water of life,” a name that speaks to the cultural, social, and historical significance that this spirit holds.
Presented in a wrought-iron trimmed wood box modeled after an authentic whiskey barrel, this addition to Assouline’s bestselling Impossible Collection may very well be its most outstanding volume published to date.
Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.
