Whisky Focus - Greenore 18 Year Old Single Grain Irish Whiskey

Greenore 18 Year Old Single Grain Irish Whiskey

15th March 2011

The Greenore 18 Year old is the latest small batch bottling of Greenore Single Grain Irish whiskey from the Cooley Distillery.

This latest release in the award winning Greenore family follows the highly successful Greenore 15 year old which was recently named the Worlds Best Single Grain Whiskey for the third consecutive year at the World Whiskies Awards in London.

The Greenore 18 year old is a limited edition of only 4000 bottles which were bottled at 46% Abv. The 18 Year old continues the Greenore journey of taste and discovery showcasing how extra years in American oak casks impart further depth and flavour to Cooley’s award winning grain whiskey.

Cooley Distillery is Ireland’s only independent Irish whiskey distiller and the first new Irish whiskey distillery to open in over 100 years. With a vision to revive many of the historical brands and distilling techniques of Irish whiskey, Cooley has developed a portfolio of award winning whiskeys, including the Greenore Family of Single Grain Irish Whiskeys.

Being the only independent Irish whiskey distillery, Cooley has strived to expand the Irish whiskey category and in particular has been the driving force behind the emergence of Single Grain Irish Whiskeys. These efforts have been richly rewarded with Cooley winning over 300 international awards for their whiskeys and recently being awarded the top industry accolade of “Distillery of the Year” by Malt Advocate Magazine, and for the 3rd consecutive year in a row, Cooley Distillery was awarded the 2010 European Distillery of the Year by the IWSC.

For three years running now, Greenore 15 Year Old single grain has been awarded the "World’s Best Single Grain Whiskey" at the World Whiskey awards in 2009, 2010 & 2011.

Currently available from The Drink Shop for £69.95
