Origin Spirits has revealed an earthy, toasty Irish Single Malt finish in seaweed-charred casks for an umami influence.

After spending fourteen years working in France and Russia for Moët Hennessy, in 2013 Patrick Shelley founded Origin Spirits Ltd. in his native Ireland. With all that Spirits marketing experience and time in Russia, Vodka was the natural choice for his first commercial product release. Thus, Kalak Vodka was born. Shortly thereafter he launched Ornabrak Gin and then Currach Irish Whiskey. All are made from 100% Irish Single Malt distilled in copper pots in a partnership with West Cork Distillers.

This is one of the most unique finished cask Irish Whiskies we’ve ever tasted. Currach Atlantic Kombu Seaweed Cask starts rather traditionally. It is 100% Irish Single Malt that’s triple distilled and aged in ex-Bourbon casks… so far so good, right? But then they take virgin American oak casks and char them by burning North Atlantic Kombu seaweed inside. These seaweed-charred casks are used to finish the Single Malt for three months. The result is the quality Irish Single Malt that you are looking for with a gentle earthiness and umami savoriness.

Smartass Corner:
The "Currach" is an ancient Irish boat whose history goes back thousands of years to the Neolithic era, but is still in use today. It is formed of wicker, natural tar, and animal skins.

Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Irish Whiskey has many varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ (or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known). Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.

Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
