At more than 2,500m above sea level,

on The Tibetan Plateau,

is the birth place of

JIU HAI BU GAN, the Tibet Single Malt.

 

Made from the world renown Tibetan barley, malted, mashed and fermented with the  softest pure water flowing from the Himalaya rivers and under the action of indigenous yeasts carefully kept under the shadows of the Tibetan monastery, JIU HAI BU GAN is distilled and aged with a know-how dating back from more than 1,000 years, giving to this Tibetan Single Malt an extraordinary elegance and aromatic richness.

qThe Tibet barley

The Tibet barley, variety «Hordeum vulgare var. himalayense», known in Tibet as Qingke, is grown only on the Tibetan Plateau. It is a very rare barley, solely grown in Tibetan Monasteries. It is the richest barley in the world regarding its content in vitamins and other compounds reducing cardio-vascular disease and diabetes. It is also the most expensive barley in the world

qMalting is conducted in Tibet

In full respect with the Tibetan philosophy, no malt or distilled spirit from outside Tibet in allowed in the process of making Jiu Hai Bu Gan: malting, mashing and fermentation of the barley is conducted in the malting rooms situated in the distillery at 2,500m above sea level. This process will last between 25 to 28 days.

qWater from the Himalayan mountains

Far away from any possible sources of pollution, at 2,500m above sea level, the Tibet Single Malt benefit, during all the different stages of its making process, from the purity and the unique finesse of the clear and fresh water coming from the rivers of the Himalaya mountains.

 

qIndigenious yeast

During the malting, mashing and fermentation of the Tibet barley, only local indigenous yeast, jealously selected and kept by the Tibetan Monastery, are used. They are stored, dried, in a mix of grounded seeds of peas and barley. No other yeasts are allowed, and certainly not industrial selected yeast!.

qDistillation art is centuries old

The malting, mashing, fermentation and distillation process (traditionally double or triple distillation) of the malt beer are conducted at 2,500m above sea level, using the Tibetan traditional know-how that has been transmitted for more than one thousand years.

qA slow maturation in amphora

To soften and sublimate the result of distillation, the Tibet Single Malt is matured during long years (more than 50 years for some spirits) in porcelaine amphoras called Jiu Hai. This will also give a light amber color to the spirit and develop the delicate and subtle perfume aromas. A short ageing for few more monthes in oak cask is then conducted at the end of the ageing period.

qThe Goji berry

At the end of the maturation process, the Tibetan tradition do not allow the use of caramel to harmonize the color between the different batches. If necessary for color harminization, only few drops coming from the maceration of Goji berries are allowed. Goji berries are world renown under the name of «fruit of longevity» due to its well established medicine properties for reducing blood pressure, for anti-ageing and other good effects on health.
