Glendalough

Glendalough 25 Year Single Malt Irish Oak Finish

Regular price
Sold out
Quantity must be 1 or more

This is the first Irish single malt ever to be aged in an Irish oak cask. This is a monumental moment for our distillery, and in the history of Irish whiskey, bottled.

The liquid itself is sublime, with each of the three casks and two predecessor liquids adding to its taste in both the right measure and order. The luxurious sweetness of the heavily charred American oak Bourbon cask is followed by the bold, round flavors of toasted Spanish oak, Oloroso casks, with the lively last word left to the virgin Irish oak spices.

Bottle size:750ml

Origins

The Glendalough Distillery was set up by five friends from Wicklow and Dublin who shared a love of craft spirits. They eventually decided to leave the safety of their day jobs in Dublin and went into the mountains to take a chance on something more meaningful (much like the man on their bottle, St Kevin). Together they built a craft distillery near their favorite spot in those mountains where they produce Whiskey, Gin and Poitín. Glendalough (meaning The Valley of Two Lakes) is a glacial valley nestled in the Wicklow Mountains renowned for its early medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St. Kevin, the legendary monk. Monasteries like Glendalough were the birthplace of distilled drinks and St. Kevin is an eternal inspiration for the Glendalough team. From the picturesque mountains, forests and fields surrounding the distillery, the Glendalough team forages fresh botanicals daily to encapsulate the taste of the valley in every bottle of gin produced. The use of Irish oak (just like the early settlement would have done) sustainably felled in forests surrounding the distillery has inspired some unique whiskey expressions to also bring further flavors of Glendalough from their neck of the woods, to yours.
