Beverage Testing Institute 93 points - (UB Collection,Finalist,Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Topaz color. Aromas of pine nut, wood smoke, baked pear come alive right from the first inhalation. Flavor profile is long, oily, roasted, savory. Superbly delicious!
Bright golden amber color. Lovely aromas of honeyed nuts and cereal, dried lavender, delicately herbal peat, yeasty dough, and beeswax follow through on a rich entry to a dryish medium-full body with ginger and praline notes. Finishes with a long, grassy peppery spice fade. Excellent.
|Welcome to the home of traditional Irish whiskey. The Kilbeggan Distillery is the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland, retaining its license to distill whiskey on the same site and in the same buildings for over 256 years.
The distillery is situated on the banks of the River Brosna, with plenty of access to the three natural ingredients needed for whiskey distillation – water, grain and turf. In fact, we still use the water from River Brosna to make our whiskey today.
Dating back to 1757 a visit today lets you discover real artisanal Irish whiskey distilling at its finest. See for yourself the traditional method of mashing in oak mash tuns, fermenting in Oregon pine vats, and the new Kilbeggan malt spirit flowing from the 180 year old pot still.
