Clonakilty Distillery’s First Cask Strength Release to Celebrate 1st Anniversary of IrishMalts.com

To mark their first anniversary, Irishmalts.com are proud to partner with Clonakilty Distillery for the exclusive release of their first ever cask-strength whiskey, finished in Bordeaux red wine casks.

This premium, nine-year old, single grain, originally filled in Bourbon casks, has been maturing for six months in Clonakilty’s Atlantic Ocean warehouse in ex-chateau casks, hand-selected from the renowned St Emilion region, where Romans first planted vines almost 2,000 years ago.

Each of the 180 bottles has been hand-filled at 56.1% ABV. Each bottle is individually numbered and non-chill filtered.

Irishmalts.com was founded by brothers Robert and JohnO’Donovan one year ago to support the rapidly growing Irish spirits business and already boasts a range of over 150 Irish whiskeys, gins and rums, focusing predominantly on independent bonders, blenders and distillers.

Irishmalts.com founder John O’Donovan commented: “We are justly proud to release this cask strength whiskey exclusively to our customers. To collaborate with a distillery with Clonakilty’s vision has been very rewarding. To achieve a special bottling of this calibre after just one year in business is a testament to our vision to bring quality, new, exciting Irish whiskeys to the market.”

Clonakilty distillery was established in 2016 by Michael Scully. The distillery laid down their own liquid recently and have opened a distillery experience and visitor centre in the heart of Clonakilty town on the Wild Atlantic Way in County Cork.

Speaking at the distillery, Michael Scully said: “Here at Clonakilty Distillery, we are delighted to support Irishmalts.com and offer our congratulations on the anniversary of their first year of trading. This special bottling of cask-strength, single grain, finished at our Atlantic Ocean warehouse in a Bordeaux chateaux cask, is the perfect whiskey to celebrate the occasion.”
