Knappogue Castle 21 Year Old Single Malt

70cl

Knappogue 21 is a limited-edition single malt Irish whiskey, with only 1,200 bottles produced. First put
into casks in 1994 and 1996, this marriage of two single malts - aged 21 and 23 years - is made exclusively
from malted barley. Distilled in copper pot stills and matured in B1 bourbon casks, this expression is nonchill
filtered and bottled at 92 proof.


The name Knappogue, pronounced Nah’pogue, translates to “hill of the kiss” in Gaelic and can be
traced to a beautiful 15th century castle that stands in County Clare, Ireland. The castle was purchased
in the 1960s by whiskey pioneer Mark Edwin Andrews, III, and his wife. At a time when only blended
whiskey was popular in Ireland and around the world, Andrews was known for collecting and bottling
single malt and pure pot still whiskey.
