Clonakilty 7 Year Old Irish Single Malt Exclusively Available In Texas
New York, NY – Clonakilty Distillery, the family-run, state-of-the-art distillery located on the south western Irish Coast, in collaboration with Garrison Brothers Distillery, released a 7-Year-Old Irish Single Malt Whiskey. The 7-Year-Old Irish Single Malt enters into the Texas market as a unique fusion of Irish whiskey and Texas bourbon through a collaboration between two extraordinary distilleries. So, if you’re like me and enjoy both bourbon and Irish whiskey, this is a bottled you’ll want to add to your bar.
The 7-year Irish single malt whiskey was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels. It was then finished for 7-months in Garrison Balmorhea barrels and then bottled. “The Balmorhea barrels bring a distinct finish to the whiskey compared to what we normally find from American Oak,” says Oisin Mulcahy, Head Distiller of Clonakilty Distillery. “This is due to the wildly different climates that exist in Texas and Clonakilty.”
Separated by 4,500 miles of ocean, these family-run distilleries have joined forces to create a special limited-edition Irish single malt exclusively for the Texas market. Through this collaboration, they have created a whiskey that marries the spirit of Irish whiskey tradition with Texas bourbon craftsmanship.
The 7-Year-Old Irish Single Malt contains aromas of sea salt, vanilla and fresh cut lumber, followed by banana nut, plums, spices and cherry on the palate for a long finish of wood, spice and vanilla.
This one time bottling is now available at select retailers throughout Texas with a suggested retail price of $69.99 for a 750ml bottle (58.8% ABV). Hurry and find a bottle at your local liquor store, because for now this was a one time limited run.
