“Our whiskies perfectly showcase our distillery terroir. The huge flavor impact of our malted barley, the pure Sub-Carpathian water, combined with the unique flavor of Romanian, European & Bourbon barrels from Kentucky USA make Carpathian an exquisite whisky, that without doubt will become one of the best in the world as it further matures."

Made using 100% malted barley produced in Romania, our single malt is distilled, aged and bottled at the Alexandrion Saber 1789 Distillery, located near the Carpathian Mountains.

Our single malt whisky is made through the traditional Scottish method using double distillation with every batch, retained feints & fore shots in our custom-made copper pots.

The malted barley for this inaugural edition was harvested in 2016, distilled in 2017, the first maturation was done in first-fill bourbon barrels then in wine casks. 

The maturation in a warmer climate vs Scotland (+5⁰C on average) might explain the unique, milder character of this superb single malt whisky.

Carpathian Single Malt is made using pure Sub-Carpathian, has a natural colour, is unchill filtered and is bottled at 46% alc.
