All about making whisky
In Gaelic, Dair Ghaelach (pronounced ‘dar gayloch’) means Irish oak. This version has been aged in American oak barrels from 15 to 22 years, before being finished in new Irish oak barrels for ten months in Kilkenny Country. According to Kevin O’Gorman, the master of maturation at the Midleton distillery, this finishing produces a smoother whisky, with pronounced notes of vanilla, caramel and toffee. It should also be noted that the fruity character of this remarkable single pot still whisky has also gained in intensity.

The single pot still range was created by Irish Distillers to highlight a style of whiskey that is characteristic of Ireland. The pure pot still recalls the ancestral traditions that are the foundation of Irish whiskey’s reputation: it is made from malted and non-malted barley and is always distilled three times. Since Irish Distillers’ pot still whiskies – Redbreast, Green Spot, Yellow Spot and some releases of Midleton and Powers – are all produced in the same distillery, they could be called ‘single malts’ like the whiskies that come from a single distillery in Scotland.
