And us here at Celtic Whiskey Shop can sure get behind that idea!


To ensure we're all getting into the spirit of things, we've put together a few of our top recommendations for you to enjoy, so we can all raise our glasses and celebrate #WorldWhisk(e)yDay! Sláinte!

  1. Celtic Cask Tríocha a Dó (32) 2008 Oloroso Cask


A very rare cask from a small distillery situated in the midlands of Ireland. This double distilled single malt was initially matured in a bourbon cask before being finished in a 53 litre refill oloroso sherry cask in May 2016. Irresistible flavours of new leather, dried beef, salted and roasted nuts, marzipan, and cherry liqueur.


ABV: 45.03% | €175.00


  1. Jack Daniel's Master Distiller No.1 


A limited edition bottling of Jack Daniel's that celebrates each of the seven master distillers to have overseen production. As the first in the series, this bottling has the man himself on the label- Jasper Newton Daniel. More commonly known as Jack Daniel. A superbly smooth whiskey with notes of sweet caramel, vanilla, and oak. The perfect balance between soft, sweet, and mellow and spicy as well as slightly smoky.


ABV: 43% | €103.00



  1. Dunvilles 1808


Dunville’s 1808 is a modern blend of malt, grain, and pot still whiskeys. The name 1808 pays homage to the year Dunville’s Irish Whiskey was founded in Belfast, from where it went on to become one of the world’s most famous whiskeys. Boasts notes of vanilla, apples, pears, candied lemon peel, and sweet spices.


ABV: 40% | €37.00



  1. Bushmills 10 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish (1 Litre)


A 100cl bottling of Bushmills 10 Year Old Single Malt. Made from a tripled distilled malt that has been aged in both bourbon and sherry casks. The bourbon ageing takes centre stage, delivering a creamy, yet light mouth feel along with some crisp barley, warm vanilla and gentle pepper and spice flavours.


ABV: 46% | €75.00


  1. Michter's Small Batch Bourbon


A fantastic bourbon that recalls pre-Prohibition style whiskeys. Michters have recreated their whiskeys with one eye on the previous brand of the same name from before the Volstead act. This version is a barley rich, mouth-filling drop that makes a superb Old Fashioned. Aged in fire-charred, new American White Oak Barrels.


ABV: 47.5% | €78.00



  1. Aultmore 18 Year Old Single Malt


An unpeated expression of Aultmore that combines flavours of fruit salad, cereal grains, peach and white grapes. Well balanced and light in body with a little sweetness. Category Winner for Speyside Single Malt 13 to 20 Years in the 2020 World Whiskies Awards.


ABV: 46% | €99.00
