Ahascragh Distillery expand the Family Bond series with their first Single Grain Irish Whiskey release. Clan Colla 7 Year Old Single Grain is a fine Irish whiskey, aged in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in Panamanian Rum all the way from Central America.
Clan Colla launched in 2021 and now comprises a variety of aged Irish Whiskey releases including Single Malts, Blends and Single Grain. The company continue to experiment with finishing casks including Pedro Ximénez, Amarone, Oloroso, Peated and now Panamanian Rum. There truly is something for everyone in this collection of premium Irish whiskeys.
Gareth McAllister, Ahascragh Distillery’s Co-Founder said “We have hand-selected some of the highest quality whiskeys available and finished them in unique and interesting casks from all over the world. Our newest adventure involved finishing our first Single Grain whiskey release in a Panamanian Rum cask from Central America. The cask was used to mature pure sugar cane rum for 8 years before reaching our home in the West of Ireland. This exceptional whiskey is sweet and light but full of flavour. We are delighted to release another unique Irish whiskey and just in time for Christmas”
While waiting for the completion of the distillery in County Galway and the first drop of Ahascragh spirit, Gareth and Michelle McAllister launched their Family Bond series of sourced-releases including Clan Colla Irish Whiskey, UAIS Irish Whiskey and Xin Gin. These special releases, although not distilled by Ahascragh Distillers’, are partly matured, finished, blended and bottled in their home in the West of Ireland.
