Irish Whiskey has had a tremendous year.
It is finally coming out of the doldrums first entered in the late 1800’s.
It’s true potential is demonstrated with exciting new Irish Whiskey expressions being released on an almost weekly basis by a growing band of blenders, bottlers, bonders & distilleries.
One market Irish Whiskey has re-entered with a bang is the ultra premium category.
It was done with aplomb, style and a certain amount of swagger.
I give you J.J. Corry’s The Chosen.
Now I can’t say I’ve ever tasted the whiskey, but having sampled a few of the casks maturing at J.J. Corry’s bonded warehouse in Co Clare, I can appreciate the high quality of spirits being nurtured there.
Presented in a stunning handmade cut crystal decanter – along with an ultra deluxe hand carved ash cabinet too – The Chosen set the whiskey internet buzzing.
It puts Irish Whiskey centre stage – where it belongs.
Let there be many more.
