Kwam hem tegen i.v.m. een nominatie voor het WW WDA van Inish Turk Beg. Het is zeker een bijzondere fles !
The Maiden Voyage of our single-malt Irish whiskey is a limited release of 2,888 unique, hand-blown Mooring Buoy bottles. Finished in Poitín barrels that have long gazed out from the shores of Inish Turk Beg, our whiskey speaks of our island spirit: Live Life at a Tilt.
It is named after the private island of Inish Turk Beg (which translates as ‘the small island of the wild boar’ from Gaelic), which lies off the west Irish coast of County Mayo. It is one of the largest islands of over 300 in the beautiful Clew Bay, which is regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest natural phenomena. The bay is rumoured to have historically been a thriving area for the illicit distilling of whiskey and poitín (pronounced pot-cheen), due to its remote location. Poitín is a traditional Irish spirit that is made from grain or potatoes and is notoriously one of the strongest and most potent produced anywhere in the world, often coming in at 80-95% ABV!
