World’s oldest single grain Irish whiskey

The only independent Irish whiskey distiller, Cooley Distillery, has released a 15-year-old small batch bottling of Greenore Single Grain Whiskey, the world’s oldest bottling of Irish grain whiskey ever released.

The 15-year-old follows the very successful 8-year-old Greenore, which has won countless awards around the world, and will be limited to just 5,000 bottles while the award winning Greenore 8-year-old will be maintained as a permanent offering.

According to master blender Noel Sweeney, the extra aging of the Greenore 15-year-old produces a more complex robust whiskey with new depths and layers of flavour that complements the smooth sweet buttery vanilla notes that makes the 8-year-old so popular.

Greenore Single Grain won a gold medal in 2007 at the International Wine and Spirits Competition and a Double Gold at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
