The Powerscourt Distillery is proud to announce its latest release, a Single Malt whiskey that has everyone talking. Why? Because it is the first distilled whiskey from Co. Wicklow in over 100 years! Whiskey enthusiasts and connoisseurs get ready for a new whiskey experience like no other. The Powerscourt Distillery has made history with their latest release – one hundred years since a whiskey has been distilled in the County, 100% Malt, 100% distilled on the Powerscourt Estate and 100% Wicklow in a bottle!
The Powerscourt Distillery Single Malt is available from April 28th at selected stockists nationwide and from the Powerscourt Distillery and Visitor Centre, plus their online store.
But don’t take our word for it. Let the whiskey speak for itself. This whiskey’s complex flavour profile boasts a nose filled with toffee, baking spices, vanilla, dessert apples, pears, soft leather, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baked buttered pastry crusts. On the palate, enjoy rich notes of vanilla custard, soft oak, salted caramel, digestives, and tarte tatin, followed by a warming finish complemented by oak spices, soft leather, honeyed almonds, and stewed fruits.
Rathdrum man, John Cashman, the head of New Product Development for The Powerscourt Distillery says, “Our First Fercullen Single Malt release takes authentic inspiration from our unique location. It is a great honour to be involved in the inaugural release of a whiskey which was completely distilled here in Powerscourt Distillery. The whole team are exceptionally proud of this key milestone in our story, especially our first employee and Senior Distiller, Johnathan Graham, who, alongside our founding Master Distiller, supervised the first distillation in 2018. Our award-winning Master Distiller, Paul Corbett, has curated the final liquid – a sensational single malt worthy of the title “Spirit of Wicklow”.
“The spirit laid down at Powerscourt Distillery in 2018 is of exceptional quality. To have the opportunity to blend these liquids and establish the DNA of Fercullen Single Malt has been an honour. I look forward to blending many more releases of Powerscourt Distillery liquid in the coming years.” Says Paul Corbett Master Distiller.
