Dingle Distillery has launched its Fourth Single Pot Still Release. Just 8,000 bottles of the Whiskey have been produced from 25 casks, of which half will be sold domestically and half will be exported to international markets including the US, UK, Germany, and France. A further 500 bottles of Pot Still Cask Strength are also being released, a first for Dingle Distillery.
The Dingle Fourth Single Pot Still Release matured in ex Bourbon and ex Oloroso Sherry casks. On the nose, the Irish Whiskey is intensely rich and inviting, offering aromas of sticky toffee pudding, Black Forest gateau and butterscotch ice cream. The palate is sweet with a burst of spice, and delivers dark fruits, figs and raisins, followed by dark chocolate and a sprinkling of chopped nuts. On the finish, the chocolate dissipates and the spice returns, while soft wood and leather notes combine to deliver a long, memorable finish.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to play my part in creating the latest whiskey release from the Dingle Distillery,” commented Graham Coull, Master Distiller at Dingle Distillery. “Our Fourth Single Pot Still Release combines fully matured ex bourbon and ex Oloroso sherry casks to produce a whiskey which allows the uniqueness of the Pot Still spirit and the quality of the wood to shine through.”
Elliot Hughes, Managing Director at Dingle Distillery, explained, “When my father OIiver Hughes and his business partners Peter Mosley and Liam LaHart filled the first casks at Dingle Distillery in December 2012, the distillery was one of the first to buck the whiskey revival trend in Ireland, part of a new generation of artisan distilling.
“With an ambition to create something special in Dingle, the very first small batch whiskey was released in December 2015 with just 252 bottles. Four further batches have followed, along with three Pot Stills – indeed Dingle was the first distillery outside Midleton to release a Pot Still. We’re as passionate about flavoursome, well-crafted spirit today as we were then, and we’re so excited and proud to launch our Fourth Single Pot Still Release.”
Priced at €95.00 per 70cl bottle, the Dingle Fourth Single Pot Still Release whiskey is bottled at 46.5% ABV and is available to purchase beginning November 5, 2020 at Dingle Distillery’s official website, IrishMalts.com, Celtic Whiskey Shop and across independent off-licenses nationwide. A U.S. release date has not been announced at this time.
