The second release of our own single malt is our flagship single malt irish whiskey – The Spirit of the Atlantic. It follows our award-winning connacht single malt batch 1 release which received multiple awards, including gold medals from the irish whiskey awards, new york international spirits competition, a double gold from the san francisco world spirits awards, and a best in class from the american distilling institute. Like batch 1, the spirit of the Atlantic is 100% Hook Head Series Ale Malt from Minch Malt, a malted barley generally used by craft brewers and unique to Connacht Whiskey.

We are proud to say that our Spirit of the Atlantic has already won a 2023 Gold Medal from the Global Spirits Irish Whiskey Masters Competition in London.

This whiskey is between five and six years old. We first age our single malt in premium ex-bourbon barrels and then finish the whiskey in Oloroso sherry casks from Spain. We do not chill filter it or add any colour. It is bottled at 44.8% ABV.

Comment
We believe that this whiskey represents our core style, and the more accessible abv will further endear it to whiskey lovers and the whiskey curious.
