Drumshanbo Irish Whiskey

Drumshanbo Irish Whiskey

Every Precious Drop Distilled at the Shed Distillery by Head Distiller, Brian Taft

Every precious drop of Drumshanbo Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has been triple distilled at the Shed Distillery using Malted Irish Barley, Un-malted Irish Barley and Irish Barra Oats. Aged in Sherry Oloroso and Kentucky Bourbon casks with no added colour and no chill filtration, this 43% Single Pot Still has been proudly distilled by our Head Distiller, Brian Taft.

Malted Irish Barley, Un-malted Irish barley, and Irish Barra Oats

Un-malted lends the new make spirit a unique spiciness & depth. The malted barley is much softer, and lends the spirit an inherent sweetness & a deeper, more full body. As part of our constant quest to create what we like to call “Premier Grand Cru” Irish whiskey, we strive to use only the most premium quality ingredients in the world. For our Drumshanbo Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, we add in a small amount of Barra Oats. These Irish Oats are key to imparting this whiskey with a distinctive elegant creaminess throughout your tasting experience, and elevating our spirit to the most creamy and premium level.

Aged in Kentucky Bourbon and Sherry Oloroso Casks

All our whiskeys are laid down in single use bourbon casks from Kentucky. This means that these casks have only been filled once previously with bourbon. The American oak from these casks is what gives our whiskey that sweet, vanilla, caramel like feel to it. The Sherry Oloroso Casks bring in a warmth of pot spice, and some sweeter honeysuckle notes to the finish.

EXCEPTIONALLY RARE

Un-malted barley imparts a silky mouthfeel, when combined with the Barra Oats, to create an intriguing creaminess and spiciness to the finish that truly sets this Irish whiskey apart. This small batch “Single Pot Still” Irish Whiskey is exceptionally smooth, creamy, spicy, and a true delight for the senses. The first Irish whiskey from the Western province of Connacht in over 105 years. This has been a long time coming, and has indeed been worth the wait.
