Velvet Cap Irish Whiskey
Velvet Cap Irish whiskey is a small batch blend of malt and grain whiskeys sourced from the finest distilleries. After blending, the whiskey rests in a selection of bourbon, port and stouted rye casks to let the flavour marry.
The Velvet Cap brand has been revived by Blackwater Distillery in County Waterford. Velvet caps were traditionally worn by jockeys in point-to-point racing, dating from 1752. Riders raced over fence and ditch between two churches - from one steeple to another, hence the term 'steeplechase'.
Blended and bottled at 40% ABV by Blackwater Distillery.

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.
