Powerscourt Distillery launches Fercullen 21 Single Malt
The 2023 launch of Fercullen 21 Single Malt marks the arrival of our second annual batch of aged malt with a delightful sherry influence. In the process of selecting from the array of available whiskeys, Paul Corbett opted for an elevated sherry influence to harmonize with and offset the bourbon wood notes originating from the 2001 distilled malt whiskey. The final outcome is a nuanced blend of rich, sherry-infused fruit flavours juxtaposed with the refreshing, creamy elegance of ex-bourbon matured whiskey.
Taking inspiration from the atmospheric bodegas of the Andalusian region of Spain, the distillery team have combined the distinctive dark fruit sherried flavours of the region with the soft elegance of 21 year bourbon-matured single malt Irish whiskey.
Bottled at 46%, non-chill filtered and natural colour, available to purchase online or directly from the distillery from today RRP of €225. 8,000 bottles of the 2023 bottling will be released globally.
