Powerscourt Distillery release O Brother Brewing stout cask finished 13-year-old single grain
In 2022 Powerscourt Distillery partnered with their local Wicklow friends at O Brother Brewing to experiment with whiskey-finished stout casks. The result of this collaboration meant that in May 2022 they could in turn fill these ex-stout/whiskey barrels with Fercullen Single Grain which were released at 48.5% ABV after 6 months finishing.
In 2023 they retained three of these very special barrels for release this year and after total of 17 months finishing, a whiskey with incredible depth has been born.
Bottled at cask strength 56.6% ABV and available at all good retail stores.
