Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Single Malt Sherry Cask Finish Irish Whiskey
Tyrconnell 10 Year Old Single Malt Sherry Cask Finish Irish Whiskey has been aged for 10 years, which is around the average age for Irish whiskeys. This refers to the age of the youngest component of the spirit, so there may be a part of the blend that is much older.
The distillation of Irish Whiskey has a long history. Some sources place it as far back as the early 6th century when Irish monks brought the distillation process back from the Middle East . This history has resulted in hundreds of years of experience and perfection to bring them to the stage they are at today. In Gaelic the drink became known as "Uisce Beatha" which means "water of life." The Normans called it "fuisce" and eventually it evolved into "whiskey." Barley and fresh spring water are the key ingredients needed and are found in abundance throughout Ireland.
