Grace O’Malley Whiskey Launches Its Flagship Crew Range
Introducing Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey
Grace O’Malley, Ireland’s newest premium Irish whiskey and spirits brand has launched its flagship whiskey, Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey. Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey is part of its entry level Crew range which includes Grace O’Malley Heather Infused Gin and Grace O’Malley Golden Rum. The Grace O’Malley brand is dedicated to the 16th Century Irish pirate queen, also known as Granuaile, born into Irish nobility in Co. Mayo in 1530.
Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey is a special blend of triple and double distilled malt and grain whiskeys. Unique in Ireland due to its high double distilled malt content, this special blend combines multiple batches of whiskey of varying age statements from three to ten years old. Each batch of whiskey is aged perfectly in different barrel types including French Oak, American Oak, Bourbon and Rum Casks. Casks are hand selected and matched according to each whiskey’s characteristics for maturing and finishing.
Responsible for the decisions at every step in the ageing, finishing and blending of Grace O’Malley Whiskeys is world renowned spirits expert, Cellar Master & Blender, Paul Caris, who calls the exact moment that each whiskey has reached perfection. The resulting blend delivers a whiskey perfectly balanced between fruitiness, age character, complexity and smoothness.
