In 1966, Texas architect Lavoné Dickensheets Andrews and her husband, Mark, stumbled upon the remains of Knappogue Castle, an Irish landmark in County Clare which was originally built by Clan MacNamara in 1467. Struck by the passionate impulse to restore the castle, the couple purchased Knappogue Castle and embarked on their journey to restore its original grandeur.

While Mrs. Andrews focused on the architectural details of the project, Mark Andrews began buying casks of the finest pot still Irish whiskey and bottling them under his own independent label, suitably named Knappogue Castle. Andrews was unusual in that he chose to bottle single malt Irish whiskeys, as opposed to blends, which most others were choosing at the time. The last of Andrews’ selections, Knappogue Castle 1951, was distilled at the now-defunct B. Daly distillery, and since become the oldest and rarest publicly-available Irish whiskey in existence.

The Knappogue Castle 21 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a marriage of two single malts distilled in copper pot stills and then matured in ex-bourbon casks – one for 23 years (put into barrel in 1994) and another for 21 years (put into barrel in 1996) before blending them together. This expression is bottled at 92 proof and is non-chill filtered.

Orchard fruit in the foreground, with rich pastry notes accented with subtle clove and baked apple spices. Toasted oak adds additional character to the background aromas. Soft and mellow with further depth and complexity owing to the long maturation period in oak, with malty richness throughout. The finish is lingering, with delicate barley cereal notes fanning over the palate.
