From Tullamore Dew
The Phoenix is an expression of the great history of our town and a celebration of our people. In 1785, Tullamore witnessed a devastating hot-air balloon accident. The resulting blaze nearly destroyed the town but immeasurably strengthened her people. Since that day, they placed a phoenix in the town’s coat of arms. Driven by their positive spirit, the town’s renaissance in the ensuing decades saw the establishment of the Tullamore distillery in 1829.
This special limited edition is a triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey; golden grain, malt and pure pot still whiskey. It is characterised by its high content pot still whiskey finished in old oloroso sherry casks and comes to you at 55% ABV. Tullamore D.E.W. Phoenix is a medium bodied whiskey, with distinctive sherry notes and pleasantly spicy creamy pot still whiskey flavours nicely balanced.
Warm and spicy initially, then rich, toffee, vanilla notes become evident. The characteristic leafy, malty notes of Tullamore D.E.W. are enriched with deeper, toasted oak aroma and a hint of sherry nuttiness.
The higher strength tingles on the tongue leaving a spicy pot still flavour. Addition of a little water releases layers of caramel sweetness, delicate floral notes and oak tannins.
Long lasting with a lingering warmth. A perfect balance of oloroso sherry sweetness and spicy creamy pot still.

“Salty, Sweet, lightly fruity, one of the softest deliveries on the market:the fruit, gristy sugars, and malt combine to melt in the mouth. There is not a single hinnt of firmness, a graduation of spices and vanilla. Delicate and delightful. The nose has a curiously intimate feel, but the tasting experience is a wonderful surprise.”
The first distillery to open in Islay in over 120 years.
“The Machir Bay range is Kilchoman’s core expression, first launched in 2012 when it won the prestigious IWSC 2012 Gold Award – Best in Class. Bottled once a year, each release contains more mature casks allowing Kilchoman fans to follow the development of the unique Kilchoman malt as it matures. Matured in a combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, Machir Bay has a well-balanced combination of rich tropical fruit, peat smoke, light vanilla and intense sweetness.” – Distiller’s Notes
Old Pulteney Navigator Bottling Note
What’s that we spy off the starboard side? It’s a new single malt whisky from Old Pulteney! The Navigator is a maritime malt aged in a mix of ex-sherry and bourbon casks in celebration of the distillery’s history with the ocean and the old sea dogs that sail it.
Sweet, succulent apple lashings with dollops of chocolate and vanilla.
Drips of honey and syrup-y orange.
A salty finish sneaks up from nowhere, very nice.
Set sail for tasty single malt!
Our relationship with the land and honey bees inspired and gave birth to this vodka. The soul of a beekeeper is filled with the rhythms that flow through the seasons, reflecting the changes in the flowers, rains, sun and all the forces that are a part of this beautiful mystery. Barr Hill Vodka is crafted from honey at our micro-distillery on the banks of the Lamoille River in Caledonia Country of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. Honey is cold fermented for several weeks then carefully distilled in our custom stills. The spirit which emerges reflects the essence of the soil and flowers visited by the bees.
Herbal, fruity liqueur with a hint of grappa. The spirit is made from winter wheat grown in the Po River Valley in the Lombardy region of Italy. It is triple distilled and crystal-filtered. The herb and fruit infusion remains a secret but the result is a smooth and elegant liqueur.
A limited edition port finished Laphroaig release for Fèis Ìle 2013, the Islay whisky festival. Initially matured in bourbon casks, this Single Malt Scotch Whisky has an incredible pink hue. Cairdeas, meanwhile, is the Gaelic for ‘friendship’ and can be pronounced more-or-less “car-chase”.
