2017 Three Year Old Triple Distilled Single Malt Great Northern Distillery


This cask has now been matured long enough to be now called Whiskey. However, it is still young and we would recommend keeping in cask a further 7+ years to reach maturity

 

Triple distilled whiskey is what Ireland has become most famous for. The extra distillation giving the whiskey a smoother, mellow style. Triple distillation allows you to push up the flavour spectrum, giving a whiskey that is more fragrant, floral, sweet and spicy. These characters are allowed to shine through by reducing the heaviness from the fusel oils.

 

Great Northern Distillery source Irish barley which is malted in Ireland. The grains are wet milled, breaking open the grains to form a grist. Mashing is when this grist is mixed with hot water in the lauter tun which then turns the starch into a sugary liquid called wort. The wort is then converted into a beer like liquid once yeast is added. The yeast converts the sugar into alcohol and its now called wash. The wash is then triple distilled in Great Northern’s giant copper pot stills. The spirit was put into cask at 63% abv and in this occasion was casked in a first fill American Bourbon barrel.
