Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish 50cl 40°
Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish is an original proposition from the iconique irish brand. This whiskey, made from cider casks, is produced once a year during apple harvest season.
The distillery brews irish apple juice freshly pressed in cider, in oak barrels, before filling those barrels with triple distilled whiskey.
This new Tullamore Dew edition symbolize the alliance of two traditional irish crafts, the conception of whiskey and cider:
- The first references of cider in Ireland goes up to the 12th century.
- The first references of whiskey in Ireland goes up to year 1405.

The Tullamore distillery has been established in 1829, in the town of the same name, located between Dublin and Galway at the heart of Ireland.
Its story goes back a long way, and the distillery took off under the management of Director Daniel E. Willams. He significantly forged the distillery’s development, where he started with turning the malt. As a true self-made man, he quickly climbed the ladder and became in 1887 General Director and eventually owner of the distillery.
As a long-lasting tribute to its visionary director, the distillery engraved each Tullamore bottle with his initials (DEW) and has become since then one of the most popular Irish blend whiskey brands.
Recognised as a premium whiskey by the Whiskey institutions, Tullamore Dew surprises with its smoothness and refined flavours. A careful elaboration process together with a triple-distillation crafted the most original, subtle, generous whiskey with a lasting finale.
In 1954, the distillery nevertheless closed down. The John Power & Son distillery purchases Tullamore Dew and merges it into the Irish Distillers group in 1966, born from Cork Distillers, John Power & Son and John Jameson & Son. The new directory closes down all operating distilleries and concentrates all the production in Midleton. A new distillery, the biggest of Ireland, is then built close to the old one.
The production starts in 1975. After a 60 years break, Tullamore Dew resumes its production in the new distillery, entirely renovated. Since July 2010, Tullamore Dew has been purchased by the Joint-venture Lixir, created by the family-run Scottish business William Grant & Sons, also owners of the Glenfiddich and Balvenie distilleries, with the French Group Remy Cointreau. Tullamore Dew is today the second best-selling Irish Whisky in the world.
