Normandy, meet Gascony. From the global cellars of BHAKTA Spirits comes one of the most innovative, unique flavor combinations in the world of drink—a union of two ancient French distilling traditions conceived by spirits visionary Raj Peter Bhakta.
BHAKTA 27-07 is a deeply aged blend of Calvados and Armagnac crafted for the whiskey lover's palate—with the BHAKTA Method's signature Islay finish adding smokiness and power.
It’s also the perfect entry into the rarefied world of aged spirits. While the 27-07’s intended age statement—7 years at its youngest, and 27 at its oldest—already placed it among the oldest spirits widely available today, its creation was the result of a blending mishap at Chateau BHAKTA in Condom, France, which almost cost our Cellar Master Giles his job. . . based on the vintages actually used in the blend, the true age of 27-07 is 18 at its youngest, and 49 at its oldest.
While we don’t know if “quality control product sampling” might have contributed to what we now call “Giles’ Folly,” we do know that the truth behind 27-07’s age statement is jaw-dropping. And since “The Frenchman’s Mistake” has robbed our cellar of some exceedingly old brandy, 27-07 will never be produced again—making it a legitimate collector’s item.
