Discover a unique Irish whiskey experience with Glendalough's Double Barrel Irish Whiskey. Recognised globally for its exceptional quality, it was bestowed with double gold at The World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, making it a true testament to the mastery of traditional Irish distilling.

This whiskey's intricate taste journey is characterised by an engaging game of two halves. First, it undergoes maturation in American oak Bourbon barrels, where it gracefully absorbs the essence of sweet honey and smooth vanilla notes, laying the primary flavour foundation. To enrich the whiskey further, Glendalough utilises Spanish oak Oloroso barrels in the second stage of the aging process, which endow it with an array of dried fruit and nutty flavours. In the quest for superior casks, Glendalough distillers venture to the small Andalusian town of Montilla, renowned for its production of the famous PX grape. Here, they have the privilege to handpick the choicest Oloroso casks after evaluating the bodega, the seasoning duration, and the liquid. This meticulous selection process empowers them to exert significant influence over the final flavours that are expressed in their Double Barrel Irish Whiskey.

The story behind the creation of this extraordinary whiskey begins with the Glendalough Distillery. Founded by a group of friends hailing from Wicklow and Dublin, their collective passion for reviving the rich heritage of Irish craft distilling culminated in this distillery. Located near their favourite spot in the beautiful Glendalough valley, the distillery's location is as much a source of inspiration as it is strategic for its operations.

Glendalough's proximity to the Wicklow Mountains, dubbed "the garden of Ireland" for their natural scenic beauty, makes it a place of immense tranquillity and creative influence. The valley is also home to the 6th-century monastic settlement founded by St Kevin, a monk who embraced nature and the wild in pursuit of distilling. His image graces each Glendalough bottle as a nod to this legacy and commitment to authenticity.

St Kevin's tale is both enchanting and inspiring. Leaving his royal lineage behind, he ventured into the mountains to ponder life's meaning, living off the land by the upper lake of Glendalough for seven years. He found a deep connection with nature, which resulted in a blackbird laying her eggs in his hand, a testament to his unity with the natural world. He built the "City of 7 Churches" by the lower lake, a structure that stands tall even after 14 centuries, drawing people from far and wide who are enthralled by the ancient ruins and the breathtaking views.

Glendalough Distillery continues to draw inspiration from St Kevin's story, using wild plants sustainably foraged from the surrounding mountains in their distillation process. This homage to nature and heritage is encapsulated beautifully in their Double Barrel Irish Whiskey.

Aimed at fans of Irish Whiskey of all experience levels, Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey is more than just a drink; it's a tale of history, tradition, and Irish spirit, encapsulated in a bottle. Presented in a relaxed yet informative manner, this offering showcases the expertise of Glendalough without being overly formal. Purchase this exceptional whiskey online today and join in on an unparalleled taste journey that bridges the gap between the traditional and the extraordinary. Imbibe the spirit of Ireland's rich heritage, savour the complexity of this splendid whiskey and let it transport you to the beautiful landscapes of Wicklow.
