Lovely Irish Whiskey with a little edge.

Jameson and Bushmills are the faces of Irish Whiskey, but it’s the smaller distilleries that bring exciting gems and push the boundaries. One of those is Hyde, carrying the name of the first President of Ireland, Douglas Hyde. Doug did not make Whiskey, but he is an inspirational figure for all the Irish. The Whiskey side of the Hyde family goes way back, though. They owned bars in West Cork between 1640 and 1962 and they were known for having some of the best Irish Whiskeys available. Alan and Conor Hyde hail from that impressive lineage, and even though they’re the first generation in three centuries not to own a pub, they continue the legacy by bonding Whiskey.

For Hyde 6 Year-Old No. 3 The Áras Cask, they cherry-picked some of the best Whiskeys. It comes from Hibernia Distillers in West Cork and it was produced from corn and barley grain. They distilled it thrice in a Coffey still and let it rest for six years in 1st fill ex-Bourbon barrels. Bourbon is quite influential here, coming through strongly on the nose, translating subtly to the palate as well. Despite being young, the Number Three is complex and rich. Its fresh and juicy character will surely bring summer to your palate every time you decide to sip on it.

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.
It is said that Hibernia Distillers sources its Whiskey from the Cooley facility, but has plans to build their own distillery.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
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!
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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
