By the end of the 19th century, there was more pure pot still whiskey leaving Ireland’s shores destined for foreign markets than any other whiskey style from any other country. By the 1980s, however, it was a style that had almost died out, surviving only in the form of the wonderful Green Spot, Redbreast and a few special releases.
It’s a spirit distilled from a mash of both malted and unmalted barley, giving it a wonderfully creamy mouthfeel and spicy, orchard fruit flavour. It’s also at the heart of Ireland’s best loved blends, like Jameson and Powers.
Over the last 40 years or so, it was made exclusively at the Midleton Distillery in Cork, but many of the newer Irish operations are realising its potential. IDL too are expanding their range thanks to a recent surge in popularity, committing to new expressions every year.
