The second core whiskey bottling from Origin Spirits, Currach Single Malt Irish Whiskey – Atlantic Wakame Seaweed Cask is an intriguing whiskey – complex yet subtle, vegetal yet sweet, light yet deep.
Made from 100% Irish malted barley, it is a triple distilled single malt Irish whiskey, initially matured in 1st fill American oak ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in Atlantic Wakame seaweed charred virgin American oak casks. It is non-chill filtered, with no caramel colouring, and is bottled at 46% alc./vol.
Wakame, a green seaweed varietal, is sustainably hand-harvested off the wild Atlantic coast of Co. Clare. It is rare and seasonal, and considered to be the king of seaweeds.
