Ireland

Glendalough

Premium Irish Poitin 1849

Nice little concoction when you’re out of gin & tonic
Distillery notes,

Claimed to be the world's oldest distilled drink - Poitín is the father of Irish whiskey (AKA - moonshine as we'd call it in the USA). First made by Irish monks in the 6th century in monastaries like Glendalough it was known as Uisce beatha or aqua vitae in Latin - the water of life. Today Glendalough's Poitín is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot-still using malted barley and pure spring water. It has a slightly floral nose with pretty and heady fruit tones. The taste is shockingly smooth and mellow given the 55%. Again a surprisingly fruity essence.

Green Spot

Chateau Montelena Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey Finished in Zinfandel Wines Casks

night cap bliss, first time trying but not the last time.
Distillery notes,
The fabulous flavor of Midleton Distillery's Green Spot Irish whiskey meets the zinfandel casks of California's famous Château Montelena in this limited edition expression. The red wine influence adds a richness and a chewiness of texture to the smooth and unctuous character of the pot-distilled whiskey. Fans of heavier Irish whiskies will be thrilled by the added weight and suppleness.
