Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Marsala Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Marsala Cask Single Malt Irish Whiskey

In 1966, Texas architect Lavon Dickensheets Andrews and her husband, Mark, stumbled upon the remains of Knappogue Castle, an Irish landmark in County Clare which was originally built by Clan MacNamara in 1467. Struck by the passionate impulse to restore the castle, the couple purchased Knappogue Castle and embarked on their journey to restore its original grandeur.While Mrs. Andrews focused on the architectural details of the project, Mark Andrews began buying casks of the finest pot still Irish whiskey and bottling them under his own independent label, suitably named Knappogue Castle. Andrews was unusual in that he chose to bottle single malt Irish whiskeys, as opposed to blends, which most others were choosing at the time. The last of Andrews selections, Knappogue Castle 1951, was distilled at the now-defunct B. Daly distillery, and since become the oldest and rarest publicly-available Irish whiskey in existence. Knappogue 12 Year Old Marsala Cask was launched as a part of the Cask Finish Series from Knappogue Castle. This single malt is triple distilled and matured for a minimum of 12 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The spirit is finished in Marco de Bartoli Marsala casks.Pick up your bottle today!"
