In 1791, John Powers founded the Powers Distillery on John’s Lane, which at the time was located on the outskirts of a growing Dublin City. The distillery used for its motive-power the first steam engine erected in Ireland — the engine was constructed for the sole purpose of producing pot still whiskey. John Power & Son was the first Irish distiller to bottle its own whiskey, adopting a gold label exclusively for Powers bottled at John's Lane. The gold label guaranteed the higher quality and distinguished it from the white label Powers which was bottled by independent whiskey bonders. Hence it became customary, when in a public house, to call for a 'gold label'. Following the formation of the Irish Distillers Group in 1966, which consisted of the distilling enterprises of Powers, Jameson and Cork Distilleries Company, a decision was made to move all distillation operations to one central site in the town of Midleton, Co. Cork. Thus, in 1976, the Powers' John's Lane Distillery was closed. Crafted at the Midleton Distillery, Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey is named after the original Powers Distillery, which was situated on John's Lane in Dublin. The whiskey is made exclusively from malted and unmalted barley, which is triple distilled in traditional Irish fashion (while the whiskey is distilled through both pot stills and column stills, it has a particularly high pot still content). Following distillation, the whiskey is aged in oak barrels for up to seven years before being bottled at 86.4 proof. Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey has spicy aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, as well as slight hints of apples and pears. The palate continues with spicy notes of white pepper, toasted oak and vanilla, and leads to a finish accented by rich barley and orchard fruits. Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey won a Gold Medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Pick up a bottle today!
