The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. released The Brollach; the inaugural launch of a limited 661 bottles of rare double-distilled, single malt whiskey, matured for over two decades.
Having released three new product launches since November 2020, The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has established more than a new brand; they have taken Irish whiskey into a new top-shelf ultra-luxury category and with the release of The Brollach, now looks to establish itself in the double-distilled space.
A Personal Tribute and Celebration
The Brollach is a personal tribute to Founder Jay Bradley’s late father who was a huge inspiration for creation of The Craft Irish Whiskey Co., who sadly passed away in 2020. Together father and son, shared an unmatched passion and knowledge of whiskey, with the dream of building a legacy and creating the finest Irish whiskeys. Their latest release has been named after the O’Brollachans, the ancient rendering of the Bradley name and represents their Irish heritage, lineage and craftsmanship. The Brollach is a celebration of Irish whiskey tradition, since the Celtic nation was the originator of the brown liquor as long ago as the 12th Century.
Jay Bradley, Founder of The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. commented: “Whiskey is my absolute passion in life and The Brollach is a very personal release to me as it is a tribute to my late father. The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. was born out of a conversation with him and our shared interest for the finer things in life, particularly whiskey craftsmanship.
Distinct Maturation Process Produces Rich Flavour and Complexity
The Brollach was matured on the southeast coast of Ireland using the freshest Irish water and finest barley aged in 200-litre Ex American Bourbon casks, which adds a deep oaky flavour to the whiskey, and then finished in 128-litre rare French Oak Madeira barrels, emerging when it is at its zenith. French Oak Madeira is made exclusively on the island off the coast of Portugal and the 128-litre barrels achieve the perfect spirit ratio based on the flavour profile of the Madeira.
Years of maturation have imparted honeysuckle, butterscotch, and caramel flavors to create a whiskey that is unmistakably masculine and intimate, bringing a fresh, intense, and potent profile – reflecting Jay’s father’s personality.
The Brollach has been uniquely double-distilled to symbolise the powerful bond between father and son and to impart complexity that is compelling, intense, and vibrant to create the finest double-distilled, single malt Irish whiskey of its generation.
The Experience Box
With its strong, bold, and masculine design crafted from raw Nordic oak and brushed with stainless steel, The Brollach’s experience box celebrates Irish craftsmanship, paying homage to the Bradley family’s Celtic heritage and honoring Jay’s father as a master craftsman. The box has a heavy grain that cleverly draws the eye to the clasps and stainless-steel trim.
The beautifully crafted box also includes a 70cl bottle of The Brollach, as well as two handcrafted Finn glasses that blend science and artistry into an inimitably designed masterpiece, highlighting and experiencing all of the whiskey notes, scents, and flavors like never before.
The Brollach bottle is housed in a solid oak plinth with a slightly curved backdrop that resembles the lines of a barrel, and the interior is a rich, dark suede set against a foam protector. The drawer beneath houses four obsidian whiskey stones, a glass and anodized silver pipette, and two vials: one for a whiskey taster and the other for the user to add Irish spring water (or his or her preferred one) to open the flavors.
