Clonakilty Distillery Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

A whiskey like no other, from a place like no other.

 

On May 1st, 2019 Clonakilty filled their first cask of single pot still spirit, and within a year it had secured the title of the World’s Best Irish New Make, at the World Whiskies Awards. Now, this exceptional spirit has matured into an outstanding whiskey and is finally being released.

Unveiling Clonakilty Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, a quintessential Irish whiskey distilled from barley grown at the edge of the Atlantic ocean on the family farm, and triple distilled in copper pot stills.

Matured in ex-Bourbon, Amontillado and Oloroso sherry casks, this expression presents flavours of sweet vanilla and kiwi, complemented by notes of caramelised pear and dark chocolate.

Head Distiller Oisín Mulcahy said: “the elements harmonise to deliver the perfect balance of sweetness and a full-bodied character, leaving subtle notes of caramel and citrus peel on the finish.”

Mulcahy added: “It’s in our nature to experiment, here at Clonakilty. That’s why we extended the traditional fermentation period of our washes, allowing the yeast more time to produce the flavours we have come to expect in our award-winning distillate. All our spirit is derived from 100% Cork grown malted and unmalted barley. We also add water, very slowly and gradually, a method called the gentle cut.”

Michael Scully, founder said: “It’s been a privilege to embark on this journey of a lifetime. Working with nature to create Clonakilty’s first ever premium single pot still whiskey. It’s a testament to our people, our land, and our rugged coastal location. We are creating something unique, enjoying the moments and sharing the passion. This is now our time. Join with us, our journey is only beginning.”
