One of Ireland's finest whiskeys, Tullamore Dew was first distilled in 1829 in the small town of Tullamore in County Offaly in the heart of Ireland. The name derives from the initials of an early owner, Daniel E Williams - DEW. Tullamore Dew is a favourite among Irish whiskeys for its distinctive, accessible taste, enjoyed on its own, over ice or with a little water. Connoisseurs describe Tullamore Dew as subtle and smooth, exhibiting a pleasant maltiness combined with charred wood undertones and the natural flavour of golden barley.
Pot Still Whiskey is the most important feature and provides the foundation flavour. Irish Pot Still Whiskey mean spirits distilled from a mash of minimum 30% malted barley and other cereals ordinarily grown in Ireland. Starting with a mash of both malted and unmalted barley, it is distilled three times in a giant copper still. Grain Whiskey has a simpler flavour than its pot still equivalent, being based on maize and a small proportion of malted barley. It is distilled in a continuous column still, again three times. Malt Whiskey is distilled three times in pot still using only malted barley. Irish Malt Whiskey can be a single malt from one distillery or combined with a malt whiskey from another distillery
Medium amber gold colour. A mild blend of spicy, lemony and malty notes, with charred wood and vanilla undertones. Notice first how the true flavour of golden barley is there in the glass, retained through careful drying in enclosed kilns, rather than over smoky fires used by others. Light bodied, sweetish spices, buttery and rounded with light citrus fruitiness. Warming, pleasant maltiness with toasted wood and vanilla hints. Enjoy its sheer purity - a clear, clean taste that can only be achieved by distilling not twice, but three times. Finally, look for the charred wood undertones, a sign that Tullamore Dew has been aged in fine quality oak casks until mature. Smooth and gentle finish, the complex flavours lingering
