Glendalough 25 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Glendalough 25 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Glendalough is an idyllic little town in eastern Ireland. Gaelic for "valley of two lakes," it was said to have been founded by a man named Saint Cemgen also known as Saint Kevin. The Glendalough Distillery, Irelands first new craft distillery, was set up by five friends from Wicklow and Dublin with a deep passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland.The 18th and 19th centuries were the glory days of the Irish whiskey industry, with over 200 licensed distilleries in all of Ireland. There were also countless unlicensed distilleries at the time, producing diverse styles of poitn, whiskey, gin, and even absinthe. But through a series of unfortunate events, the Irish Whiskey Industry dried to a trickle in the 1970s.Glendalough Distillery is part of a revival of this Irish heritage. Their philosophy is "to make innovative spirits while staying true to the tradition and heritage of our ancestors." Glendalough started out making poitn the traditional Irish distillate made in small pot stills. From there they seamlessly transitioned to whiskey production, and most recently, seasonal, wild botanical gins. All of their production is handmade.Glendalough 25 Year Old Single Malt marks a special occasion for the distillery as well as Irish whiskey in general. It is the first single malt coming from Ireland that is aged in new Irish oak casks made from the very first tree cut down by the distillery itself in the Wicklow Mountains. These come into play at the very end, after maturation in charred American oak ex-bourbon casks and Spanish ex-Oloroso sherry casks has already taken place. The end result is bottled at 92-proof without chill filtration. This incredibly rich and round release is limited to 1,800 bottles worldwide.Pick your bottle up today!
