About The Busker Single Pot Still Irish WhiskeyFounded in 1999 and formerly known as Walsh Whiskey Distillery, this Irish distillery was renamed the Royal Oak Distillery and opened its doors in June 2015 in County Carlow in Ireland’s Ancient East region – the center of Celtic Ireland. Based at Holloden House, an 18th century estate, all three styles of their hand-crafted The Busker Irish whiskey – pot still, malt and grain – are produced on-site under one roof. Working with both column and pot stills, their spirits are matured in a variety of barrels, including bourbon barrels from Kentucky, sherry butts from Jerez, rum barrels from the Caribbean and the rare Cantine Florio 1833 Sicilian marsala wine casks. Their collection features the Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth expression and its components as standalones – Single Grain, Single Malt and Single Pot Still whiskey.
Single pot still expressions are similar to single malt expressions – the difference is single pot still whiskey includes malted and unmalted barley in its mash bill as opposed to single malt whiskey. Made from barley that’s distilled in copper stills in a traditional way, The Busker Single Pot Still has a typical Irish character. Matured in ex-bourbon and sherry casks and bottled at 88.6 proof, the nose opens up with a rich and complex profile with notes of fresh flowers, oak, fudge and honey. The palate is spicy and peppery balanced with toffee notes and rounded up with a long, warm finish. A beautiful example of an Irish single pot still whiskey to enjoy neat or on the rocks.

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%.
