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 it's 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 on this occasion will be casked in Pedro Ximenez casks.

 

These  Pedro Ximenez casks are 300 litre hogsheads and were used for 15-20 years at Bodegas Del Pino in Montilla-Moriles DO. The casks were all sourced via a cooperage in Montilla that we work with.
