Southern California Whiskey Club is proud to have Davide Roman visiting all the way from London, United Kingdom to educate us on their fine line of independent bottled spirits. Valinch & Mallet was conceived and created by two friends coming from different backgrounds, united by the common passion for whisky and the desire to transform it into a profession and share its fruits with everyone else.

about Valinch & Mallet:

Valinch & Mallet is a young Italian independent bottler of single cask whisky and rum that they bottle at natural cask strength and without chill-filtration. They specialize in selecting and bottling only those single casks that prove to be exceptional and truly unique. This characteristic is transferred to the bottles; each of them has a handmade metallic plaque where the information has been engraved by a blacksmith, thus creating unique works of art. They are distributed in 18 countries and looking to expand their reach worldwide.  [info]
