03 Jan Echlinville releases Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated Whiskey
The Echlinville Distillery has released its much anticipated Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated Whiskey.
The peated vintage blend of selected aged malt and grain whiskeys is the latest expression from the distillery’s Dunville and Co. whiskey brand. Believed only to be Ireland’s third peated whiskey, the subtly smoky dram has already been hailed by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible as ‘a rare treat of an Irish’, receiving a score of 94.5 out of 100 and a ‘Liquid Gold’ medal in the publication, which is widely regarded as the world’s leading whiskey guide.
Shane Braniff, owner of The Echlinville Distillery, said: “At Echlinville, our ethos is one of tradition-meets-innovation. Dunville’s Irish Whiskey encompasses that ethos perfectly. Dunville’s is one of Ireland’s oldest, greatest and most iconic whiskey brands. Originally produced at the Royal Irish Distillery in Belfast until it fell silent in 1936, it was one of Echlinville’s founding goals to revive this important cornerstone of Irish whiskey heritage and bring Dunville’s Whiskey back to the world.
“Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated is the third release from our Dunville and Co. whiskey range. It joins the multi award-winning Dunville’s PX 10 Year Old Single Malt and Dunville’s Three Crowns to complete the Dunville’s trilogy. While the first two expressions were reinventions of the original Dunville’s whiskeys dating back to the 1830s, Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated marks the beginning of a new and innovative chapter in the Dunville’s story.”
Dunville’s Three Crowns Peated Irish Whiskey retails at £41.95 RRP and is available to the public from The Echlinville Distillery shop,The Celtic Whiskey Shop
(Dublin) and independent off-licenses, and to the trade via Drinksology.
The Echlinville Distillery is also home to some of Northern Ireland’s best-known spirits, including Jawbox Gin and Echlinville Single Estate Irish Pot Still Gin, which was awarded a coveted three star rating at this year’s Great Taste Awards, and Bán Poitín, acclaimed as Irelands premier Poitín.
