The Craft Irish Whiskey Co has launched another limited edition expression.
Distilled in 2001, The Brollach is a no-age-statement single malt that was aged in ex-Bourbon casks before being finished in French oak Madeira barrels. The iteration, which is limited to 661 units, is available to buy immediately from the company’s online store.
Each 70cl bottle of The Brollach comes with two glasses and is housed in an oak box.
“As double-distilled whiskey ages, it becomes more complex and spicier, only released when the flavour of the whiskey is at its best,” said The Craft Irish Whiskey Co’s co-founder, Jay Bradley. “Traditionally, Irish whiskey is triple-distilled and we are very proud to have created a product that ensures luxury Irish whiskey is being represented in the double-distilled space.”
The Brollach is the company’s third release, after the launch in February of The Emerald Isle Collection – a 30-year-old whiskey packaged with two Fabergé products that at the time went to auction for EUR1.7m (US$2.1m).
