Retronaut : Irish Single Malt Whisky
17 Year Old Irish Single Malt WhiskyThe first release of whisky from the Blackwater Distillery. Retronaut, like many other new Irish whisky brands was actually distilled elsewhere, the difference with this brand is that it is clearly labelled stating the fact. Another thing of note is the spelling of whisky. The missing 'e' may surprise a lot of people but Irish whisky was once commonly spelled as such but was eventually phased out in the 1960s. This limited edition 17 year old single malt was limited to just 1160 bottles and we only have a couple of the last available in Australia, if not the world.
ABV: 46% VOL: 700ml
Situated on the banks of the Blackwater River, just outside Cappoquin in beautiful West Waterford. With an abundance of clean air, fresh water and plump barley, it is the perfect setting for Ireland’s first craft gin distillery.
