$69.95 inc GST

700 ml, 43% abv, Ireland

The notion that “single grain” describes a whiskey made with just one grain is a common misconception. Rather, the term refers to whiskey made in a single location using malted barley and at least one other grain. 94% of the mash bill for Kilbeggan Single Grain is made of corn, with the other 6% being malted barley.

Kilbeggan Single Grain is a sweet spirit that absorbs the flavours of the casks it ages in. After aging in ex-bourbon barrels, it is finished in a marriage of ex-bourbon and different fortified wine barrels.

“The caramel from the nose carries through, and then it finishes with a little heat and currants”
