A unique blend of Irish spirits with a sophisticated palate.

Hibernia Distillers is fairly new, being founded in 2014 by brothers Conor and Alan Hyde in the wee town of Skibbereen, Ireland. But in a few short years this small-town maker of traditional Single Malt and Single Grain Irish Whiskey is rocking the world with products available in fifteen countries and an early, hard-won reputation for creating amazing, aromatic, award-winning examples of liquid Irish pride.

Hyde No. 6 President’s Reserve is a blend of two, top-quality Irish spirits. It’s approximately 75% eight year old Single Grain Whiskey and 25% eighteen year old Single Malt — both aged in ex-Bourbon casks. The two are married and aged an additional nine months in Sherry casks before being bottled at a pitch-perfect 46%. As you might imagine, all that rather complicated specification limits supply. The current production run is limited to a mere 5000 bottles — so the “Special Reserve” in the name actually means something.

Smartass Corner:

The Hyde’s clansman — Douglas Hyde — was the first president of Ireland, serving from 1938 through 1945. All Hyde “President’s” Whiskies are named after him.
