Celebrate St Patrick’s Day on 17 March in style with the Tullamore D.E.W family – a selection of premium statement whiskey’s from the renowned Irish whiskey isle.
Born in the heart of Ireland in 1829, Tullamore D.E.W. can’t escape the power of three, with a complex taste derived from three types of grain, triple distillation and the blend of all three Irish whiskeys. This unique approach has brought generations of character closer to the true spirit of Tullamore.
In the last few years Irish whiskey has experienced a huge resurgence in popularity worldwide, and is currently the fastest growing spirit category in the world. Irish whiskey is not only one of the most drinkable spirits, it is also one of the most mixable. While you can enjoy it straight, the honeyed whiskey is a perfect swap in classic cocktails like the infamous Irish Coffee treat. St Patrick’s Day is the perfect excuse to get familiar with the spirits. However, don’t feel that you only have St Patrick’s Day to spend time with this family, Tullamore D.E.W will be represented at all of the Whisky Live events this year; so this April come on past the Whisky Live Cape Town show, and discover for yourself why Tullamore D.E.W is 3 times better.
TULLAMORE D.E.W. ORIGINAL
Triple distilled and patiently aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and sherry casks, this original blended Irish whiskey is known the world over for its smooth and gentle complexity. The early floral, yet biscuity flavour reflects the grain whiskey, while the soft spicy notes can be attributed to the pot still whiskey in the blend.
12 YEAR OLD SPECIAL RESERVE
Our 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys. They say with age comes wisdom, or in this case, complexity, character and maturity - one of the reasons why this truly unique whiskey has been awarded plaudits in abundance from whiskey connoisseurs around the world.
Like Tullamore D.E.W. Original, Tullamore D.E.W. 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a high triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey. However, it has a high proportion of pot still and malt whiskey, matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, for 12 to 15 years. A very fine aged whiskey with great complexity.
14 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT
Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old Single Malt is a quality aged whiskey comparable to the very best of the Highlands, but triple distilled and finished in four casks—that’s the essence of Tullamore D.E.W. 14 Year Old Single Malt. It boasts a rich, balanced and vibrant flavour enjoyable for both single malt enthusiasts and fans of Tullamore D.E.W.’s core range alike.
15 YEAR OLD TRILOGY
Our 15 Year Old Trilogy is the very pinnacle of our craft. Across three generations of Williams, the three unique crafts of distillation, blending and maturation in finest oak were honed. This is a compelling, beguiling and deeply satisfying Trilogy. The wood, an exquisite vessel of time itself, is the distinguished theatre of this unique whiskey. Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry and Rum: each is a unique wood representing the zenith of Irish whiskey craft, and each adding its own complex flavour.
