Situated in the Midlands region of Ireland, the city of Tullamore was ruled for centuries by Clan O'Molloy. On May 10, 1785, a hot air balloon crashed into the city and began a fire that destroyed over 100 homes, making Tullamore the site of the world's first known aviation disaster. Following the accident, the city adopted a phoenix (a phoenix is a mythological Greek bird that is reborn after it dies) rising from the ashes as its coat of arms, a symbol of its resilience and recovery. Tullamore DEW Distillery was founded within 50 years of the accident, and is situated at the very site where the hot air balloon struck a smoking chimney, which started the fire. Tullamore DEW Irish Whiskey is made from three different grains, including malted barley, unmalted barley and corn. Once the grains are harvested, they are milled and mashed with hot water before being fermented in wooden washbacks. During fermentation, the grains' sugars are converted into alcohol, creating a strong yet sour beer called wash. The wash is then triple distilled through three copper-pot stills: a wash still, a low wines still and a pot still. Through each distillation process, the alcohol content and flavors of the whiskey are intensified. Tullamore DEW 18 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a triple pot-still distilled single malt whiskey. While the distillate that makes up the 14 year old Tullamore spends between five and seven months finishing its maturation in Madeira, Oloroso, and Port casks before being blended, this release is made from whiskey that have spent ten to twelve months maturing in their respective cask finishes after having spent the beginning of the aging process in American oak previously filled with bourbon. As a result of both the blending and aging process, Tullamore DEW 18 Year Old Irish Whiskey has an aroma of malt, oak, apples, and tobacco with a palate consisting of tropical fruit, vanilla, butter followed by a long sherry finish.
