Finnlaigh Irish Whiskey: history and modernity distilled
Woolworths is very pleased to launch its newest private label spirit, Finnlaigh Irish Whiskey.
Finnlaigh Irish Whiskey is made exclusively by Ireland’s only independent whiskey distiller; the award-winning Cooley Distillery. When Cooley was established in 1987, it was the first new distillery in Ireland for over 100 years. Since then, Cooley has become world-renowned and amassed over 300 medals, including the prestigious title of ‘World Distiller of the Year’ (International Wine & Spirit Competition, London 2008), ‘European Distiller of the Year’ (IWSC 2008 & 2009) and ‘Distillery of the Year’(Malt Advocate).
The Cooley Distillery is nestled in the foothills of picturesque mountains along the Cooley Peninsula, close to the medieval village of Carlingford;
Cooley is committed to preserving the ancient art of Irish Whiskey production, whilst delivering a modern and silky-smooth drinking spirit at an exceptional price. This twice-distilled, premium quality Irish Whiskey is aged for four years and has a malt content of 25 per cent. Finnlaigh is proudly distilled and bottled in Ireland and is presented in a stylish silver gift box.
Finnlaigh Irish Whiskey 700ml, 40% Alc./Vol.
Master blender, Noel Sweeney, describes Finnlaigh as having sweet caramel, vanilla and toasty wood aromas with a flavour that begins soft and silky-smooth, developing into sweet, golden raisin, caramel and peppery spice notes. It has a creamy vanilla and toasty wood finish.
