Currach Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a true innovation in the world of whiskey, and the first to be finished in seaweed charred casks. To celebrate this unique creation, they have partnered with Western Herd Brewing Co to create a bespoke Currach Single Malt Irish Whiskey, Cask Strength, Single Cask bottling exclusively for the Irish market.
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. For this special bottling they have then given the whiskey an additional finishing in a cask seasoned with Western Herd’s award-winning Flora & Fauna Double IPA.
The additional IPA cask finish adds wonderful earthy, dank, pine and pineapple notes to the unique briny yet sweet maritime notes and green tea undertones that the Wakame charred casks provide. This limited-edition bottling is non-chill filtered, with no caramel colouring, and is bottled at natural cask strength ( 56.7% alc./vol.).
