“Only a brandy matured from barrels that emerged from the depths of the ocean could taste this singular. Red apple skins, dark caramel and hazelnuts are complimented by a touch of saltiness giving a miso-like savouriness to it all. Screw you Neptune we are keeping all of this.”

what producer says
In 2007, en-route to South Africa, the MSC Napoli was beached off Devon. Its cargo included new, empty Allier oak barrels destined for The Cape’s finest vineyards. Some of the shipwrecked barrels found their way to us, having been protected from the sea by being packed among bibles written in Zulu. Maturing our brandy in these barrels gives a sophisticated finish worthy of single cask bottling. We now buy new barrels from the same cooperage. The finely grained new Allier oak is what creates the distinctive smoked, oaky taste of Shipwreck.
