Diedenacker Number 1
Diedenacker Distillerie // Luxembourg
Hailing from one of Europe's smallest countries, the Diedenacker Number One is a blend of malted barley and rye distillates aged for five years in an ex-Pinot Blanc wine barrel. The Diedenacker Distillery primarily produces eaux-de-vie from a number of fruits and distillates from other bases. They began producing whisky as an afterthought in 2005 and now produce one 225-liter barrel of a rye/malt blend each year. All production is done on a local scale; from the grains to the barrel, everything is sourced from around the Moselle Valley. Despite the growing popularity of this whisky, Luxembourg limits its distilleries to a certain number of liters per year, and the family feels that 225 liters of whisky each year is enough. Bottled at 42% ABV.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
