How It's Done
Our unique blend of three whiskeys – grain whiskey, double distilled and triple distilled malts – aged in four different casks - finished in Ex Copeland Bordeaux Rum barrels and bottled at 46% ABV.
Working in collaboration with Brian Watts, Master Distiller at The Great Northern Distillery, Dundalk, we have created a unique blended Irish whiskey, signalling a taste of things to come while we wait patiently for our malt and pot-still whiskeys to mature.
The grain whiskey has been matured for 12 months in a virgin American oak barrel, then transferred to a re-char bourbon cask for the remaining 24 months. The double distilled malt has been matured in an American first-fill bourbon cask and the triple distilled malt matured in an Oloroso sherry butt. To finish this limited-edition whiskey, we finished the whiskey in ex Bordeaux Copeland Rum barrels for 8-9 months before disgorging and hand bottling.
How It Smells
