Fanagoria Estate Winery's cooperage has concluded a contract and shipped the first batch of casks to William Grant & Sons Ltd., one of Scotland's major whisky distilleries. The casks will be partly used in the framework of Grant's marketing program in Russia, while the rest has left directly for Scotland.
Fanagoria's cooperage was opened in April 2011. Its wine and brandy casks are made of the local Caucasian oak.
This is the 2nd export shipment of Fanagoria casks; the first was to Chateau de St. Daniel, Crimea, Ukraine. In the Company's plans, shipments to Argentina and Chile.
