Nose: Vibrant and lively with incredible fruitiness. Ripe apples, sweet citrus and hints of tropical fruit all enveloped in Vanilla Oak.
Taste: Big, creamy malt with loads of vanilla tannins. Ripe, sweet red grapes and a hint of poached apple.
Finish: Sherried sweetness carries on.

Distilling is known to have taken place on the banks of the river Clodagh since 1790, and the first distillery was established in the town of Tullamore, Co.Offaly, in 1829 by Michael Molloy. Eventually a young engineer by the name of Daniel Edmond Williams was promoted to general manager and the distillery underwent a period of modernisation, with electricity, telephones and automobiles were coming into use.
It is during this time that Tullamore DEW began to be marketed, with the DEW coming from the great man’s initials. The distillery was eventually bought by the Willaims family and was hugely successful until the 1920’s when hard times forced the family to stop distilling. The doors remained shut until 1947 when the distillery was re-opened under the stewardship of Desmond Williams, grandson of Daniel, who installed a patent still and began production of Ireland’s first blended whiskey. In 1954, the brand was sold to John Power & son, and the distillery was closed, with production shifting to Midleton, where it remained until 2014, when a new purpose built distillery was opened in Tullamore, bringing the whiskey home again.
