This month, we are giving pride of place to the West Cork 10-Year-Old single Malt on our specials board. Our Anniversary cocktail, Deich mBliana d’Aois, draws inspiration from the classics, the Manhatten, Godfather and Old-Fashioned cocktails, to complement the flavour profile of the whiskey. The herbal vermouth complements the peppery notes in the whiskey, while the DiSaronno provides a bitter counterpoint to the smooth vanilla from the bourbon cask. The orange bitters highlight the citrus flavours in the whiskey and the Old Fashioned bitters, round out the drink.

40ml West Cork 10-Year-Old Single Malt Whiskey

West Cork Distiller’s Black Cask Whiskey is matured is double charred in #5 bourbon casks. The aroma is more akin to a bourbon than an Irish whiskey, but it maintains the citrusy, malty character of its Irish heritage. We are pairing it with Thomas Henry Ginger Beer, whose spicy finish complements the spicy finish of the whiskey. The whiskey is poured over a wedge of fresh lime to add a sharp refreshing touch to the drink.

1 Measure West Cork Black Cask Whiskey
4z oz Thomas Henry Ginger Beer
1 Wedge of Lime
Fill a tall glass with ice. Drop in the lime, and pour the whiskey over the wedge, followed by the ginger beer.
West Cork Whiskey 12-Year-Old Single Malt Tasting Flight
The wood that a whiskey is matured in is one of the most important factors in determining the flavour, aromas and body of the spirit. The West Cork 12-Year-Old Single Malts, highlight these differences extremely well. Each of the three woods imparts its own unique characteristics to the whiskey. This month we are offering a tasting flight of the three whiskeys so you can experience these whiskeys side by side and experience the difference that the choice of cask creates in the finishing of the spirits.
