James J. Fox of Grafton Street, Dublin, have announced the launch of the first ever Single Cask Teeling Blackpitts Irish Whiskey. This limited-edition whiskey is a collaboration between James J. Fox and Teeling Whiskey, made from peated single malt that was distilled in Teeling Distillery in 2016, and has matured exclusively in a PX Sherry cask from one of the most renowned bodegas in Jerez.
Cask No. 29694 was selected from the team at James J. Fox Dublin and bottled at cask strength of 60.5%, with a yield of just 294 bottles.
”We are honoured to have collaborated with our friends in Teeling Whiskey for the first ever Blackpitts Single Cask,“
said Yiorgos Manesis, Managing Director of James J. Fox.
“We have been chasing this cask for years, and we are thrilled to finally be able to release it to the world. This is an exceptional release that will be a big hit with fans of peat”.
Stephen Teeling, Sales and Marketing Director of Teeling Whiskey Co. says:
“We are delighted to collaborate with the team at James J. Fox on this new and unique single cask. This expression of Blackpitts Peated Irish Single Malt demonstrates our continued use of top-quality casks to elevate our Dublin-distilled Peated Single Malt whiskey. The PX cask adds a further layer of complexity to this one-off Blackpitts Single Cask bottling.”
The Teeling Blackpitts Single Cask Irish Whiskey will be launched on August 16th, 2023, and retail for €120. It will be available exclusively through the James J. Fox Dublin store on 119 Grafton Street, and online on www.jamesfox.ie.
