Sonny Molloy’s Irish Whiskey Bar, in the heart of Galway City, has been chosen as the first on-trade establishment to release a 16 year-old single cask Irish whiskey.
Redbreast 16 Year Old Single Malt was exclusively bottled for Sonny Molloy's. The whiskey was aged in a 500 litre Spanish Oak sherry cask, and only 570 bottles have been yielded from cask #10351. The result is a limited edition collectable whiskey. 200 bottles will be released for general sale by Sonny Molloy’s this at the price of €345. Each bottle forms part of a gift set, featuring two specially engraved Galway Irish Crystal tumblers and a certificate of authenticity, endorsed by Master Distiller, Brian Nation.
John Mannion of Sonny Molloy’s Irish Whiskey Bar said: “Our shelves are already full of the finest selection of Irish whiskey but the addition of this label, unique to us, has been a dream in the making for many years. Since we announced in September that we’d be releasing the Redbreast 16 Year Old there has been great anticipation among whiskey collectors and enthusiasts alike, and already there’s a significant waiting list. Our whiskey is being released in honour of our namesake Sonny Molloy, so it’s a fitting coincidence that it arrived into the bar on what would have been Sonny’s 92nd birthday.”
The Sonny Molloy’s Redbreast 16 Year Old Single Cask will be on sale, by the glass, in the bar or to take home as a gift set. It will also be available in store and online at McCambridge’s of Galway.
