Clonakilty Distillery Unveils Its 32-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey
The oldest release from Clonakilty to-date. Matured in Oloroso Sherry casks at their warehouse on the Wild Atlantic Way, County Cork. A super-premium Irish whiskey retailing at €2,225 and limited to approximately 500 bottles.
Clonakilty Distillery proudly announces the launch of its 32-Year-Old Single Malt Irish whiskey. This extraordinary whiskey, matured in sherry Oloroso hogshead casks, has spent the last 8 years in their warehouse perched at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.
Perfected by the elemental forces of the ocean, it pays homage to the transformative influences of rain, mist, and sea spray on exceptional spirits.
Oisin Mulcahy, Head Distiller, shared,
“With the passage of time, the fruit flavours have matured, revealing rich notes reminiscent of Christmas cake. A delightful plum pudding sweetness is impeccably balanced by the opulence of prunes and fig. We have six casks in total, and we are going to release four or possibly five at most, so this is an exceptionally limited release.“
Each individual cask is bottled at cask strength, and each bottle is individually numbered and labelled accordingly, underscoring the rarity of this release. Housed in a premium wooden case, exuding an aura of elegance and sophistication, the meticulously crafted 700ml bottle within is a true embodiment of luxury.
As an additional indulgence, a 50ml tasting vial accompanies each purchase, affording enthusiasts the opportunity to savour a small serving before committing to the full experience. More than a whiskey, it is a revered collectible for connoisseurs who discern and appreciate the rarity and craftsmanship encapsulated within every precious drop.
If you’re looking for a truly refined and smooth whiskey to gift or sip on this festive season, Clonakilty 32-Year-Old Single Malt is available for purchase in Ireland and the EU, please contact paddy.gilley@
