New Make Triple Distilled Single Malt Cask Great Northern Distillery


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.

 

Triple Distilled Single Malt Production

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 is put into cask at 63% abv and in this occasion will be casked in a first fill American Bourbon barrel.
