In 1966 an American man called Mark Edwin Andrews purchased Knappogue Castle in co Clare with the idea of renovating it into a restaurant. While doing this he sourced Whiskey for his private collection, mostly from the B Daly Distillery (mothballed in 1869). In 1998 his son, also called Mark, noticed his dad had some amazing liquid in storage and thus Knappogue Castle Whiskey was created.
The Knappogue Castle Cask Finish Series is a range of single malts finished in the finest wine casks. The Marchesi di Barolo limited release is matured in bourbon barrels for a minimum of 12 years, then further aged in casks from the renowned Barolo Winery.
This release is limited to 2700. Limited to the Irish market
