An added bonus at the Irish Whiskey Awards 2016 was being shown round the new Tullamore Distillery.

Barrels aplenty quietly maturing in the warehouses.

The spotless condition of the production floor.

And a glass of Phoenix Whiskey straight from cask.

Phoenix – a mythical bird that rose from the flames of;

a) The early 20th Century crash of Irish Whiskey Distilling and it’s subsequent rebirth today.

b) The closure of the original Tullamore Distillery in 1954 and it’s glorious new awakening in 2014.

or

c) The 1785 hot air balloon disaster that burnt half of Tullamore down after the balloon allegedly hit a distillery chimney.

You could say that for option c) – it was a bit of a Hot Ride!
