KELT XO is the legend that launched the KELT company. Mr. Kelt wanted to recreate the XOs that he knew in the 1960s and 1970s but improve on them. He went about this in his usual way of extreme attention to detail which some today misname OCD. The proof came early when the KELT XO was the only XO ever (or since) to win a Platinum medal in the International Wine and Spirits Competition. For many years Mr. Kelt made only the KELT XO until he could perfect other blends to his exacting standards. We use our extensive experience and stock of Limousin oak barrels in the most creative way to get the maximum effect from the Ocean Maturation. For our Commodore we use barrels of between 12-18 years of a particular quality and history. The exact composition and details are a closely guarded secret know only to two persons within the company.
