Irish Whiskey Local Gift Pairings

With Christmas fast approaching, you still have a couple of days left to grab the perfect gift for that special someone.

To help you, we’ve put together this guide, matching some of our favourite whiskeys with some great local gifts.

Powers Gold Label

Powers Gold Label is a complex spice and honeyed taste experience. Every drop is triple-distilled, with more cut from the top and tail of the second and third pot still charges. This means only the purest heart of the distillate is captured. This is then left to mature in select American oak casks, which allow our distillate-driven style to shine. Powers Gold Label is blended with the finest grain whiskey, also exclusively matured in American oak casks. Finally, a proprietary Powers
 production technique enables a non-chill filtration at 40% ABV – unique amongst Irish whiskey.

Redbreast 12 Year Old

One of the most decorated Irish whiskeys, Redbreast is the largest selling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey in the world. Regarded as the definitive expression of traditional Single Pot Still whiskey, the genesis of Redbreast dates back to 1903 when John Jameson & Son entered into an agreement with the Gilbeys Wines & Spirits Import Company to supply them with new make spirit from their Bow St. Distillery. The custom of that era was that distillers sold bulk whiskey to ‘bonders’ who, being in the business of importing fortified wines such as sherry and port, had ample supplies of empty casks in which to mature new make whiskeys under bond.
