Glendalough Double Barrel 70cl 42°
Distilled in small quantities, this Double Barrel Single Grain has been aged in two types of casks: firstly in Bourbon barrels and then in Oloroso Sherry casks. A spicy, vibrant Irish whiskey that flies high the colours of the new generation of Irish whiskeys.
Rich in black fruits (cherries, raisins and figs) it shows a floral with lemongrass and nutmeg notes. It shows a sweet, creamy mouthfeel with caramel and green pepper, balanced with the sweetness imparted by the Bourbon barrels. A finish marked with ginger and almond paste.
Glendalough has been awarded a double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2015.

Wishing to revive the traditional Irish distilleries, five friends from Wiclow and Dublin created the Glendalough distillery.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, Ireland boasted more than 200 distilleries, which until recently dropped to a small handful. Glendalough was created to pay homage to the Irish distilling heritage. The young craft distillery produces today a range of innovative and traditional spirits, from Poitín to whiskeys and botanical gins, relying on heritage and tradition of the Irish distilleries. Glendalough is the first Irish craft distillery.
