Whiskey of the Month

Irish Whiskey

Not all whiskeys are created equally but in order to be called an “Irish Whiskey”, distilled spirit must be;
• aged in wood barrels for a minimum of 3 years.
• a minimum of 40% ABV.
• distilled and matured on the island of Ireland.

There are several types of Irish Whiskey including;

Pot Still

Irish Whiskey Pot still whiskey is whiskey made from a combination of malted barley and unmalted barley and is distilled in traditional copper pot stills. Pot Still Irish Whiskeys are characterised by full bodied flavours and a wonderful creamy mouth feel.

Grain Irish Whiskey

This  is typically produced from a mash of maize and malted barley. Grain whiskey is lighter in character than pot still whiskey and generally the characteristics display delicate, fragrant and floral notes.

Malt Irish Whiskey

A single malt whiskey is made exclusively from malted barley and is distilled using a pot still.
