The Busker launches Small Batch Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

The Busker Irish Whiskey has made great strives over the last two years and has become the eighth best selling Irish Whiskey worldwide. This small batch release is limited to 17,000 bottles worldwide, with 9,000 allocated and already presold in Japan. Also unvelied at the launch was the new bottle design across the Busker range.

The Busker Irish Whiskey proudly unveiled its first Small Batch Single Pot Still Whiskey on Thursday, 25th April, with an exclusive tasting evening for a select group of well-known whiskey enthusiasts in the atmospheric surrounds of Cellar 22 on Dublin’s St. Stephen’s Green.

Guests were treated to an exclusive tasting of the new Small Batch Single Pot Still by Woody Kane, Global Brand Ambassador for The Busker, who gave some insight into the brand’s background before giving guests a first taste of the brand’s newest launch.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful tasting plate menu inspired by the new whiskey release with a selection of complimentary cocktails created by Irish Brand Ambassador Richie Delahoyde.

The Busker small batch single pot still whiskey is triple distilled and double matured in the ancient southeast at The Royal Oak in Co.Carlow. The master blender carefully selects each Cask to create the unique flavour and deep golden amber colour, blending tradition with modern appeal.

Matured in American bourbon casks and finished in Oloroso sherry European oak butts, this first in a double-aged collection has been expertly crafted to showcase the pinnacle of Irish single pot whiskey.

The limited edition whiskey showcases aromatic complexity with leathery tobacco notes, soft lingering spice, and sumptuous autumnal fruits – figs, sultanas, prunes, and damsons, bound together with exquisite caramelized balsamic tones. Resinous notes of distinguished oak and fragrant sandalwood create an elegant, smooth finish.

Woody Kane, Global Brand Ambassador of The Busker Irish Whiskey, commented,

“I am thrilled to be a part of this release. Pot Still whiskey, the quintessential Irish spirit, truly shines in our latest offering at The Busker. For this project, we focused on showcasing our meticulous cask selection process to enhance the final product. We started with our finest Pot Still whiskey matured in Bourbon casks and then transferred it to hand-selected, fresh Oloroso casks. This process allows the whiskey to achieve a perfect harmony of spice and fruit, showcasing the best that maturation has to offer. The result is a beautifully bold yet reliably smooth whiskey that Pot Still enthusiasts are sure to love.”

The Busker Small Batch Single Pot Still Whiskey 46.3% 70cl RRP €54.95 and is available to purchase from retailers nationwide.
