Tullamore DEW 14 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
Tullamore DEW 14 year old is a single malt Irish whiskey, one of the very few Irish single malt whiskey available currently. It is a triple distilled blend of three different types of whiskeys, and matured in a combination of three different Oak barrels.
History Tullamore DEW Single Malt Whisky
The Old Tullamore Distillery was established in 1829 in Tullamore, County Offaly in the heart of Ireland by Michael Molloy. After Michael’s death, his nephew took over the distillery and hired Daniel E. Williams as the general manager, who later went on to own the company.
He launched the Tullamore DEW whiskey bearing his initials D.E.W. Like many other Irish distilleries, the Old Tullamore distillery also underwent financial hardships due to declining sales during the start of the 20th century and ultimately shut down in 1954.
The owners eventually opted to sell the distillery to John Powers & Son and after a series of different ownerships, the brand was finally acquired by William Grant & Sons in 2010. In 2014, William Grant & Sons built the Tullamore Distillery, the first to operate in Tullamore since 1954.
Making Process of Tullamore DEW 14 Year Old Irish Single Malt Whisky
The malted and unmalted barley is first milled with water to make a mixture that has a porridge like consistency. This helps separate the starch from the grain. Three washes of heated water is then passed over this mixture in mash tuns, drawing out all the starch from the mix. Diastase, a naturally found enzyme in malt, is mixed with the diluted starch. Diastase is used to transform starch into glucose. Mixing it with the starch converts the mix to a sugary liquid called wort.
The next step is fermentation. The wort is transferred to fermentation vessels. Yeast is added to this mix to convert the sweet wort to a wash, a liquid with a low alcohol content. The wash is then distilled three times in three different styles of copper pot stills. At each distillation, the amount of water used is reduced, and this, in turn, increases the alcohol strength of the spirit.
This liquid is then aged for up to 14 years in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished in different cask types – ex-Oloroso Sherry Butts, ex-Port Pipes, and ex-Madeira drums for a minimum of six months and are brought to a suitable proof before bottling.

Knob Creek Single Barrel Bourbon
Straight from one carefully hand-selected barrel to your bottle, Knob creek single barrel reserve encounters no detours or distractions. It's just the big, pure flavor that Booker Noe set out to create over two decades ago. Most bourbon is blended together from multiple barrels to create a consistent taste. However, each barrel of single barrel reserve is bottled individually to become one-of-a-kind. Each batch we handpick will have slight variations in taste, color and aroma based on its final age, rack placement and other proprietary methods passed down for eight generations. Best yet, it's bottled at a 120 proof, so it's an even bigger expression of our signature flavor. You’ll find more pronounced flavors and a smokier aroma. And although it packs a high proof, the finish is still smooth and complex. This is best enjoyed for the first time in stages. Pour a finger and sip it neat. Then open it up with a drop of water or a filtered ice cube
