For a Father’s Day gift with distinction, look no further than one of the three, award winning Irish whiskeys; Fercullen Premium Blend Irish Whiskey, Fercullen 10-Year-Old Single Grain Whiskey and Fercullen 14-Year Old Single Malt Whiskey.
These expressions from The Powerscourt Distillery are the first released by Master Distiller Noel Sweeney. A special trilogy of 50ml bottles in a gift pack will also be available from the Distillery Visitor Centre giftshop from early June.
Fercullen Premium Blend Irish Whiskey
Ablend of carefully selected aged malt and grain whiskeys matured in ex-bourbon casks ensuring a smoothness and depth of flavour drawing from grain, malt and toasted oak. “Mellowed by time in a soft Irish climate, this exquisite Irish whiskey brings tones of citrus, emerging from malt and grain to deliver a long lasting sweet vanilla and toasted oak finish,” says Master Distiller Noel Sweeney.
Fercullen 10-Year-old Single Grain Irish Whiskey
Aged for several years before being recasked in fresh bourbon barrels. Balanced, with light, sweet, subtle tones, this inspiring Irish whiskey lends company to any occasion. ”This is an exceptional 10-year-old Irish whiskey,” says Sweeney. “It delivers light, subtle tones that reveal an underlying complexity and smoothness that lends character to any occasion.”
Fercullen 14-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey
Carefully selected from rare stocks of aged Irish whiskey and set aside to mature in bourbon barrels. “This is a truly remarkable whiskey, a smooth, satisfying, perfectly balanced and easy to drink Single Malt Irish Whiskey,” says Sweeney. “Exclusively matured in fresh bourbon barrels for over 14 years it has married oak and bourbon tones with a fruity, clean malty spirit to deliver a classic with maturity beyond its years.”
Fercullen is derived from the ancient Gaelic name, ‘Fera Cualann’, a term that dates back to 800s and formerly given to the lands that surround and encompass Powerscourt Estate. Drawing from an underground lake of pure Wicklow water, located within close proximity to rich farming lands and enjoying a temperate coastline climate, Powerscourt sets the perfect stage for distilling and maturing Irish whiskey.
For those interested in whiskey as an investment, a limited-availability Cask Programme is also available.
Together with ownership of a 200L cask housed in the distillery warehouse on the estate, members will enjoy exclusive access to special events, annual samplings, private whiskey tastings and limited edition releases.
