Affinity bliver ikke solgt under navnet whisky da det er en blend af skotsk whisky og Calvados.

Skotland og Normandiet deler på mange måder den samme kolde, maritime klime. Det ene sted er kendt for dyrkning af korn det andet for sine æbler.

"We have been blending Calvados with Scotch whisky at home and in our blending room for years. The flavour combination is classic: apples and spice riffing off dried fruits and vanilla. When we were able to source Calvados of the right quality, and in enough quantities, we decided to share our private experiments with the world."

"Orchard fruit notes are common to both Calvados and Scotch malt whisky. Many Calvados producers double-distil in pot stills, just like their Scottish cousins. Maturation in French oak is another aspect of their shared DNA.

These two spirits share richness, sweetness and complexity; the Calvados lends an intensity and length to the finish which enhances the character of the Scotch whiskies."

Indholdet i Affinity er Calvados fra Domaine Christian Drouin. Single malt whisky fra Craigellachie Distillery i Speyside,
sammen med ukendt Highland single malts. Fad typerne der er brugt til denne aftapning er French oak barriques, first-fill sherry
butts, custom French oak casks og refill Sherry butts.

Der kommer 6028 flasker af Affinity, aftappet ved 46% alc.
