We were delighted to garner another gong in 2022. Finisher’s Touch won the Irish Whiskey Award for best overall Irish Single Malt aged 12 – 15 years. This completed the hat-trick of Golds for The Generation Trilogy; Toomevara took Double Gold at the 2019 San Fran World Spirits, and Haddington came away with Gold from the 2021 Irish Whiskey Awards.
Finisher’s Touch was our most ambitious finish to date. We sent first-use bourbon casks all the way – 3,000 kms land and sea – to Funchal in the Madeira Islands, where they were seasoned with the excellent Justino’s madeira. We then brought them home, filled them with fine malt, and cosseted them till Finisher’s Touch announced its readiness.
