The secret? Triple Distillation!

Did you know that the origins of whiskey are Irish? Although this discovery is generally attributed to the Scots, the story of the creation of whiskey is beautiful and 100% Irish! This is why Ireland is just as famous for its distilleries as its neighbouring country!

But each country has its own techniques and know-how: that’s why Ireland has been recognized for centuries as a whiskey specialist… and knows how to distinguish itself from the competition!

It must be said that the country has several strings to its bow: ingredients of great purity, a know-how transmitted over several generations… and above all, a unique technique: that of triple distillation!

Considered as the keystone of most Irish distilleries, this technique allows to refine the aromatic profile of the final whiskey, making it finer, silkier, and without residues. Richer in character too: a whiskey resulting from a triple distillation is generally richer and more powerful.

Irish whiskey tenors have made it their speciality. Distilleries such as Bushmills in Northern Ireland, Tullamore Dew, or Midleton in the Republic of Ireland use this technique for each new production.

Whether you push the door of the greats of the sector, or the more modest distilleries, you will learn above all that whiskey is an alcohol which requires patience, quality ingredients and mastery of the still! The opportunity to learn more about this renowned alcohol, while enjoying a small guided tour on site, in a setting full of barley and malt!

Something to have a good time, whether you’re a connoisseur or not!
