Powerscourt launches first Estate Series whiskey

Powerscourt Distillery has introduced the first release in its Estate Series.

The Fercullen Mill House Single Grain Amarone Finish is the first of three releases in the series. Its name gives a nod to the distillery's brand home and a historical focal point for the distillery, the 18th-century mill house.

The limited-edition release blends single grain Irish whiskeys produced in 2010, 2011 and 2012 by Powerscourt's master distiller and master blender, Noel Sweeney.

The whiskey was initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels before an 18-month finishing in Amarone casks. It is non-chill filtered and bottled at 46%.

Part of the fabric of the Powerscourt Estate for 300 years, the water-powered Mill House was repurposed to become the distillery's visitor centre while the water that once drove its turbines is now used to make the Fercullen whiskey range.

The distillery also boasts an in-house modern grain mill, where its barley and cereals are processed.
