A truly unique Irish Whiskey finished in virgin mizunara casks.

Glendalough was founded by "five friends from Wicklow and Dublin." They began their journey creating Poitín — a traditional Irish distillate made in very small pot stills (sort of like small batch Irish Moonshine). From there it was a short and easy step into a variety of Irish Whiskeys and Herbal-infused Gins as well. Everything is made by hand with a good measure of love.

It’s easy to get jaded in this business. Lots of folks "Claim" to doing things new and unique, but the truth is that there is a lot of same-old out there. But Glendalough 13 Year Old Mizunara Finish brings in a new wrinkle that is darn tasty. It is widely known that mizunara oak — native to Japan — is notoriously hard to work with but exceptionally good at imparting flavor to Spirits. The problem is that long-term aging in casks made of this rare wood is very difficult and VERY expensive for lots of reasons dealing with cellular structure and cellulose fiber-bonding. So the good lads at Glen aged their stellar Irish Whiskey for thirteen years in ex-Bourbon casks and then finish it in virgin mizunara puncheons — getting the flavor, age, and flavor profile they were looking for.


Smartass Corner:
Puncheons are larger barrels. Where a conventional American Bourbon casks holds approximately 53 gallons, a puncheon can hold anywhere from 72 to 120 gallons.

There are many Irish Whiskey 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.
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.
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.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
He was a monk, but not the sort fo monk we might think of today, we like to think he was more like Bear Grylls – his passion was the wilderness, God and doing things his own way, the hard way. We really liked that about him - doing hard, but right way. That’s the reason he’s on the front of our bottle," explain the founders.
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!
