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 Irish Whiskey 12 Year John's Lane Release 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 through pot-stills in traditional Irish fashion. Following distillation, a portion of the whiskey is matured in first fill ex-bourbon casks, while the remainder is aged in casks that were previously used to mature Oloroso sherry. After a twelve-year beautyrest, the whiskey is bottled 92 proof. Powers Irish Whiskey 12 Year John's Lane Release has a sharp aroma of honey and spices that gives way to notes of leather, charred wood, milk chocolate and apricots on the palate. The finish is chewy and bold, with touches of herbs, fresh citrus and honeyed oak. The whiskey was named the Irish Whiskey of the Year in 2012 by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. Pick up a bottle today!
