A World’s First For Clonakilty Distillery
The award-winning Clonakilty Single Batch whiskey is now called:
Clonakilty Single Batch Double Oak Finish
Our Single Batch whiskey has been finished in double oak casks for a while, but now we decided to highlight the fact! A premium product matured in ex-bourbon casks, it is finished in virgin American oak; and shaved, toasted and re-charred ex-red wine European oak casks (NEOC)*.
This makes it the world’s first Irish whiskey to be finished in a NEOC cask.
The new label is specifically designed to make the finish clearer to our consumers, and will tie in more consistently with our other cask finish series:
Clonakilty Port Cask Finish
Clonakilty Single Grain Bordeaux Cask Finish
Clonakilty Single Batch Double Oak Finish is the flagship of Clonakilty’s cask finish range and is proving popular among connoisseurs looking for a high-quality affordable product in the Irish whiskey market. In 2019 it won double gold at the San Francisco Spirits Competition, considered one of the most prestigious judging events in the whiskey world. It is a key example of Clonakilty Distillery’s dedication to creating new and exciting cask finished whiskeys.
“We are incredibly proud of this whiskey and the numerous awards it has won. We feel that our new label better reflects the care that has gone into producing the complex finish and taste of the end product.”
Clonakilty Distillery Founder, Michael Scully
*NEOC — New Era Of Cask
NEOC are ex-red wine barrels from the Bordeaux region of France. They are hand-shaved by traditional coopers, and re-toasted according to each individual distiller’s specification.
