Pure Pot Still

It origins date back to the start of the 18th century. This type of whiskey was produced in order to avoid the heavy tax on malt. The tax had been introduced to refill the crown’s coffers, and basically targeted breweries. Produced from a blend of grains, mainly malted and unmalted barley, it could also contain a certain percentage of wheat, oats and rye.

This type of whiskey is now only produced in Ireland by the Midleton distillery. The latter generally uses a blend of equal proportions of malted and unmalted barley. The wort is distilled three times in successive pot stills. The pure pot still recipe was recently applied to a bottling of the French Eddu whisky, which is made from black wheat.
