Tullamore D.E.W. – the original triple distilled, triple blend Irish Whiskey – has unveiled the world’s first cider cask finished Irish whiskey – Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish.
This unique whiskey combines two of Ireland’s oldest crafts, cider-making and whiskey-making. The result is a rare blend that brings the senses on a journey – straight to the heart of Ireland. Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish is a triple distilled, triple blend Irish whiskey infused with notes of toasted oak and tinged with cider sweetness to engage and delight the palate of Irish whiskey lovers everywhere.
John Quinn, Tullamore D.E.W. Global Brand Ambassador, commented; “To create Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish, we selected the finest apples, which were then freshly pressed and held in oak casks for several months. As the cider fermented, the tart-yet-sweet notes infused the bourbon casks. We then siphoned all the fermenting cider, replacing it with Tullamore D.E.W. Irish whiskey for a further three months of maturation.”
He continued, “Once a year, this finely-balanced, sophisticated spirit is created here in the heart of Ireland,punctuated by an Irish seasonal craft with exquisite subtlety. By combining the age-old tradition of cider making – which dates back to the 1600s – with Tullamore D.E.W.’s 185 years of expertise in whiskey making, we believe that what we’ve produced is something incredibly exciting – a product that’s truly worth seeking out.”
Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask Finish has smooth distinctive taste – soft and mellow, with a lovely balance ofoak, creamy malt and sweet, fresh apple notes. It’s the sweet, lingering taste and subtle fruity notes that define this singular Irish whiskey, making it the perfect gift for true whiskey explorers.
