Founded by rugby stars Adam and Dan Leavy along with father Donal and friends Ogham Whiskey unveil their third release
Ogham Whiskey release a 7-year-old single malt with a cognac cask finish. The whiskey has been sourced from Great Northern Distillery and the limited release of 1,100 bottles is bottled at 46.23% ABV and from December 7th is available at €83 for a 500ml bottle.
Ogham Whiskey’s latest expression is a 7-year-old single malt Irish whiskey finished in a cognac cask. Carrying a honeyed malt with a delicate sweetness, the cognac cask finishes adds subtle hints of dried fruits with vanilla undertones. The finish is long and satisfying with lingering notes of caramel.
This highly exclusive release has been sourced through Great Northern Distillery by W.D. O’Connell. This latest expression is limited to less than 1,100 bottles and is bottled at 46.23%.
Ogham’s journey began 4-years ago when Leavy family looked to explore the possibility of developing a distillery on their family farm in Mullingar.
Adam was always passionate about creating a whiskey brand that had a nod to the past, paid its respect to the ancient craft of the Irish person and what better way of doing so by incorporating the original Irish Alphabet into their story – OGHAM.
Ogham is the earliest known form of writing used in Ireland. The earliest surviving examples date back to the 4th century AD meaning that Ogham provides a window into the language, culture, and society of early Ireland.
Among the finer details of the bottle are some personal touches which reference those involved such as a 7-year age statement to reflect Dan’s number when he played for Ireland and Leinster and Adam’s time with the Ireland 7s team.
In addition, the back of the bottle is adorned with the ogham spelling of DL which are the initials of three of the four founders while the words “Pure”, “Family”, “Éire” and “Pride” also feature.
Speaking of the launch Adam Leavy said
“We’re delighted to round off a remarkable first year with our third and final release of 2023. To date the journey has been so enjoyable, we’re only getting started and look forward to showing you what we have planned for 2024.”
Commenting on the news, Dan Leavy, said
“Our passion for Ogham continues to burn strong and we’re delighted to share our latest creation with everyone. We’re very proud of how we’re rounding off our first year and we think we’ve created the perfect stocking filler for the whiskey lover in your life.”
Priced at €83 (RRP) per 500ml bottle, Ogham Irish Whiskey is available to purchase from tomorrow, 7th December 2023 at www.oghamwhiskey.com. This release is limited to 1100 bottles
