About Hyde 10 Year Old Nr.1 President's Cask Sherry Finish Irish Whiskey
Hibernia Distillers was founded in 2014 by Conor and Alan Hyde in Skibbereen, Ireland. The brothers reached meteoric success with their traditional single malt and single grain Irish whiskeys earning themselves a strong reputation for producing high quality, award-winning Irish spirit.
Hyde Single Malt Irish whiskey is crafted from 100% malted Irish barley, and made in small batches using a traditional copper pot still. The whiskey is then matured for over ten years in flame-charred, first fill, ex-bourbon casks sourced from Kentucky before being finished for an additional six months in either a Sherry or Oak casks.
Two separate casks are used to age their sherry finished whiskey. For the first decade, Hyde single malt is aged in flame-charred, first fill, 200-liter oak bourbon barrels. The whiskey is then transferred into toasted Oloroso sherry casks, for an additional ten months. These casks are 250-liter "Hogshead" barrels crafted from white oak and sourced from Cadiz in the Andalusia region of South West Spain.
"The flamed bourbon casks initially add sweeter vanilla and caramel flavor, followed by the toasted sherry casks which add a nutty, spice, dried fruit, and toffee character to the final dram" (producer). This inspiring Irish whiskey won a double gold medal and "Best Single Malt Irish Whiskey" at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

About Irish Whiskey
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
