Exquisite Irish Single Malt Whiskey aged fifteen years in Bourbon casks and two more years in rare Mizunara oak.

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 Whiskies and Herbal-infused Gins as well. Everything is made by hand with a good measure of love.

The story of this particular Single Malt is a very interesting one. It started as a Classic Irish Single Malt Whiskey aged for fifteen years in ex-Bourbon casks. But that was far from the end of it. The folks at Glendalough then put the Spirit in rare, Japanese Mizunara oak casks for another two years.

Glendalough 17 Year Old Single Malt is a rich, thick, and exotic expression of their signature Irish Single Malt. And bottled at a perfect 46% ABV, it’s one worth a taste.

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!
The Glendalough brand is personified by the story of St. Kevin:
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
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.
