Tullamore Dew has unveiled the world’s first cider cask finished Irish whiskey: Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish, which will be available exclusively in Global Travel Retail stores and at the Tullamore Dew Visitor Centre in Tullamore.
Due to the seasonal nature of the Irish apple harvest, Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish has limited production, made only between September and November each year.
John Quinn, Tullamore D.E.W. Global Brand Ambassador, commented: “To create Tullamore Dew Cider Cask Finish, we selected the finest apples, which were then freshly pressed and held in oak casks for several months. As the cider fermented, the tart-yet-sweet notes infused the bourbon casks. We then siphoned all the fermenting cider, replacing it with Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey for a further three months of maturation.”
