Aging: First aged in Bourbon, then it is finished in Oloroso before being finally casked in canteiro-aged, Madeira barrels from off the coast of Africa. Highly sought-after, and hard to come by, these Madeira barrels do something special to our whiskey. Madeira wine is all about heat and tropical sea air. As such the barrels soak up and impart intense aromas and flavours bringing this whiskey right off the deep end.
Information about the producer:Glendalough is a deep, glacial valley nestled in the Wicklow Mountains. Just south of Dublin, County Wicklow is renowned for its natural, scenic beauty and is known as “the garden of Ireland”. Glendalough is also renowned for its 6th century monastic settlement founded by St Kevin – a legendary monk and the man on our bottle. Monasteries like Glendalough were the birthplace of distilled drinks. At Glendalough Distillery we progressively-craft luxury spirits that evoke a profound sense of place, an appreciation of the wild flavours within, and a recognition of what it took to capture them. Our GINS are fresh-distilled from hand-foraged, wild botanicals in the Wicklow mountains. Our IRISH WHISKEYS are the result of a relentless search for the finest, most flavourful species of oak in the world.
