This latest release from the company that produces both the multi-award winning ‘The Irishman’ and ‘Whiskey Tears’ Irish whiskey brands, has been launched to mark Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s 17th year in business, which has seen the commissioning of their new distillery at Royal Oak in County Carlow.

Commenting on the launch, Bernard Walsh, Walsh Whiskey Distillery Co-Founder and Chief Executive, said: “This is an historic year in the development of our company with the commissioning of our distillery at the 18th century Royal Oak estate. That landmark warranted a very special release. The signature of this exceptional 17 year old is its deep rich flavour profile. The influence of the sherry cask is forever present, with notes of dark chocolate, toasted oak and sweet sherried raisins. We have specifically bottled it at natural cask strength (54% ABV) without chill filtering - as nature had intended.”

The Walsh Whiskey Distillery at Royal Oak, is unique among independent Irish distilleries in its ability to produce all three forms of Irish whiskey – pot still, malt and grain – from its two manually operated production lines featuring pot stills and column stills. It has the capacity to produce 8 million bottles of whiskey annually.

The Irishman 17 Year Old Single Cask, will be available later this month in limited quantities, from Harrods in London, Dugas in Paris and Dublin Airport. RRP (tbc).
