The new expressions will join the brands existing core range of bottlings; The Dublin Liberties Copper Alley 10 Year Old and The Dublin Liberties Oak Devil 5 Year Old, which will now also come presented in the new refreshed packaging.
Each batch of Dublin Liberties Murder Lane and Dublin Liberties Keeper’s Coin will be numbered. The pinnacle of the new collection the Dublin Liberties King of Hell, will be limited to just 50 bottles on its initial batch release.
Commenting on the news, Darryl McNally, Master Distiller, said: “Irish whiskey is my passion and to be able to play a part in continuing its growth is a real honour for me. I see innovation in the super premium plus segment as key to continuing the impressive growth Irish whiskey has seen in recent years, so with The Dublin Liberties, we’re embracing an experimental approach with unique finishes for our aged malts unlike anything else on the market. We’re incredibly proud of the new expressions we’ve created and we’re confident that the new Dublin Liberties whiskies will become collectors’ items in their own right.”
The Dublin Liberties Murder 13 Year Old, Keeper’s Coin 16 Year Old and King of Hell 27 Year Old, will be available in Ireland and global travel retail outlets next month, before being rolled out worldwide later in the year, for the respective RRP’s of €160, €340 and €2,700.
