Three is the magic number.
Have you ever wanted to try a Whiskey made in the grounds of an iconic Irish castle? Ok, maybe that never crossed your mind but at least we’ve got your attention now. Slane Castle can be found about forty miles north of Dublin and has recently opened the doors of its first distillery. Since 2015 Alex Conyyngham has been leading a project to turn the horse stables of his family castle into an outstanding Irish Whiskey Distillery that relies on a unique triple cask maturation process.
While we wait for Slane Castle’s first release of Whiskey distilled in the grounds, the founders decided to release an Irish blend that sets the tone for their new distillery’s future. In this release, Irish Spirit has been matured and blended from Virgin American Oak, Aged Bourbon Oak and Spanish Oloroso Sherry Casks. The combination of these three distinct Whiskey flavors makes this an ideal tipple for anyone looking to appreciate more flavor complexity whilst still enjoying a traditionally smooth Irish character. This is a great example of an up and coming Irish distillery giving you a hint of what’s to come in their bright future. Be one of the first to jump on Slane’s bandwagon and you’ll be saying you had the chance to drink their Whiskey before it was famous.
