The newly launched Pot Still Irish Whiskey from Glendalough Distillery has already been deemed a triumph by leading international drinks experts after scooping gold at both the 2020 World Whiskies Awards and the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Having only launched in October 2019, this is Glendalough’s first Pot Still release. Glendalough Distillery’s Pot Still Whiskey has sweet and citrusy aromas and is buttery on the palate with flavours of treacle, toffee, vanilla and spices.
Pot Still is a quintessential Irish style of whiskey, so the team felt it was only fitting that it went into Irish oak casks for a year.
Each bottle is labelled individually and numbered by batch, cask and even the tree felled to make that cask. A neck tag on each bottle gives directions to GlendaloughDistillery.com/IrishOak where you can input the numbers from your bottle and see a short, personalised film of that specific oak tree being felled and made into the actual cask their bottle came from.
To nurture the health of Wicklow’s native oak forests and ensure their future, the oak trees are felled under a ‘Continuous Cover Forest Management System.’ This creates pockets of clearings for planting and nurturing the next generation of Irish oak. Glendalough plants seven oak saplings for every tree they fell.
We have two bottles of Pot Still Irish Whiskey to give away, each one with a branded hip flask! To enter, just answer the easy question below.
