DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glendalough Irish Whiskey, Ireland’s first craft distillery today announces the launch of the Company’s 13 year old single malt whiskey at the Mansion House Dublin. The latest in the distillery’s range of aged, single malt Irish whiskeys is being launched at Ireland’s premier Whiskey event, Whiskey Live.
The 13 year old whiskey is Glendalough’s second offering to be launched from the range. In August, the Company released their first Irish whiskey, a 7 year old single malt and they believe that the 13 year old has that something special.
Commenting on the launch, Barry Gallagher, MD of Glendalough Irish Whiskey said, “Irish single malt is often called the Champagne of whiskeys. This is something special, it heralds the second coming of single malt in Ireland. It is a style of whiskey that gave Irish whiskey its name in the first place. Our great grandfathers drank this great drink and we believe its time has come again. We are delighted to be able to launch our 13 year old single malt here at Whiskey Live, among those who appreciate this great spirit for the craft that it is”.
Ally Alpine, The Celtic Whiskey Shop owner added: “The Celtic Whiskey Shop is delighted to launch Glendalough 13 Year-Old Single Malt from their stand at Whiskey Live Dublin 2014 in the Mansion House. We did a preview taste this morning and were very impressed with its richness & balance. There are plenty of sweet, malty characters with caramel & citrus notes. This is a very welcome addition to our range”.
The 13 year old whiskey will be a limited edition by Glendalough. After 13 years aging this is a whiskey that has done the hard yards, and it’s certainly a whiskey that will stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of them.
The Company has seen a number of exciting developments over the past year, including the expansion of its brand portfolio which now comprises Whiskey, craft Poitín and a Seasonal Gin which is due to launch in November. Glendalough’s product range has been launched so far this year in the US (New York, Boston & Washington with three more states coming in board in 2015), Australia, UK, Northern Ireland, France, Germany, South Africa, Holland, Denmark, Austria and Canada.
