Powerscourt Distillery’s new Head of Whiskey & Product Development John Cashman, a recipient of an Icons of Whisky award and an international wine & spirits judge, has worked in multiple distilleries under the Beam Suntory umbrella.
Having worked alongside the Distillery’s founding Master Distiller Noel Sweeney for many years at Cooley, John preserves unique knowledge on Fercullen whiskeys old & new and combined a Fercullen 19 Year-Old Malt with an Italian-influenced Amarone cask finish, blending this with a 12 Year-Old Grain Irish Whiskey.
Having established its core range of award-winning Fercullen Irish Whiskeys – 8 Year-Old blend, 10 Year-Old Single Grain, 14 Year-Old Single Malt and 18 Year-Old Single Malt, Powerscourt Distillery adds to its range the Estate Series and the launch of the series’ second edition ‘The Italian Gardens’.
