Glendalough 7 Years Old 70cl 46°
The effigy of Saint Kevin is represented on the bottle. He is said to have spent seven years in the wilds of Ireland before founding the "City of Seven Churches" at Glendalough. This choice for this figure is an echo to this whiskey aged for seven years.
The Glendalough Distillery (pronounced "Glendaloc") features a Single Malt aged 7 years in Bourbon casks selected for their intense and sweet scents.
The Bourbon casks used previously contained brown beer (Porter) for 6 months of the "5 Lamps" brewery in Dublin. The "Black Pitts Porter" is rich and creamy characterised by aromas of chocolate and grilled barley.
The aromas of this Porter impregnated in the wood blend with the aromas of citrus whiskey, which reinforces the notes of cocoa, grilled malt, dark chocolate and coffee on the finish.
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.
