Glendalough Pot Still Irish Oak Whiskey
There is no more Irish a whiskey than Pot Still, so we felt it was fitting to age it in Irish Oak. Glendalough Distillery to proud to play their part in bringing back the use of Irish oak for whiskey cask-making.
This most quintessentially Irish style of whiskey, pot still, is first matured in ex-bourbon casks, then in Irish Oak felled in the mountains around the distillery.While the bourbon cask softens and sweetens the whiskey, the higher levels of flavor in Irish oak complement and balance the classic pot still spices.

We like this one neat, over ice, or in a highball (garnished with a grapefruit peel & mint sprig).
POT STILL HIGHBALL
The search for the perfect whiskey highball ends here.
Take a tall glass and fill it to the brim or beyond with ice. (the bigger the chunks the better - one large chunk is best).
Pour in 1.5 oz. Glendalough Pot Still and top with soda water. We think 1:2 ratio of whiskey to soda water is perfect to open up the depth of the Irish oak flavor within.
Garnish with a grapefruit skin to complement the woody tannins and spices in the whiskey and a sprig of fresh, slapped mint.
