Rugged West Cork provides the perfect maturing conditions for this exceptional 10-year old single malt Irish whiskey. Originally Distilled in a copper pot still, HYDE whiskey is double matured. Firstly in flame charred, first fill, oak bourbon casks, and then ‘finished’ in 20 year old vintage Oloroso Sherry or Dark Caribbean Rum casks. HYDE is Handcrafted in very small limited edition batches and non-chill filtered for a more original character. HYDE is a presidential quality whiskey, celebrating the inaugural appointment of Ireland’s very first president Douglas Hyde and the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922. A 100% pure malted Irish barley whiskey from a single distillery - HYDE is a true taste of the Irish free spirit.
The West Cork of Ireland is a coastal region with an exceptional micro climate not found anywhere else in Ireland; much of this is due to it’s unusual combination of warm summers and mild winters, making it one of the most temperate climates in Western Europe. The warm Atlantic Gulf stream provides West Cork with the perfect oceanic micro-climate for maturing HYDE Irish whiskey casks. Never too hot & never too cold - Just right!
