Glendalough Distillery is to launch three newly-crafted whiskeys for 2018, along with a distinctive new bottle design across its full range of spirits.
A globally awarded Double Barrel Irish Whiskey, 7yr Old and 13yr Old Single Malts will roll out to trade from the start of 2018, alongside the distillery’s Wild Botanical gin and traditional Poitín – all of which will feature the new, revamped packaging.
The craft specialists behind Glendalough Distillery have focused on perfecting the ageing and finishing of its whiskeys through a unique wood program; exploring the breed of oak and predecessor liquid that would best accentuate each of the whiskeys’ flavours. As a result, the whiskeys are matured in Bourbon barrels before being uniquely finished in a second, very different cask.
The new-look bottle will also be introduced to Glendalough’s fresh, Wild Botanical Gin, as well as its Mountain Strength Poitín, which will relaunch at 55% ABV instead of its previous 60%, and be sold in 50cl bottles, down from 70cl.
