Rademon Estate Distillery has unveiled its second whiskey, Shortcross Rye & Malt Irish Whiskey.
Shortcross Rye & Malt Irish Whiskey has been created with a mash bill of 100% Irish malted rye and malted barley and aged in a combination of virgin chinkapin oak and ex-bourbon barrels. It is non-chill filtered, all natural colour and bottled with an ABV of 46%.
“When my wife Fiona and I founded Rademon Estate Distillery back in 2014, distilling whiskey was the dream,” Co-Founder and Head Distiller David Boyd-Armstrong. “Last year this was realized with the launch of Shortcross Single Malt Irish Whiskey and we’re so proud to launch another uniquely Shortcross whiskey with the release of Shortcross Rye & Malt Irish Whiskey.
“With Rye & Malt, we’re continuing to lay down whiskey that has a distinctive taste profile. We strive to create as much flavour as possible in each stage of our whiskey making process and using water from the historic well on our estate, this release combines a mash bill of 100% Irish malted rye and malted barley to create a whiskey with spicy and peppery notes.”
Shortcross Single Malt Irish Whiskey was the first new whiskey to be released from a Northern Ireland distillery in over 100 years, and 2022 will see further new releases from Rademon Estate Distillery.
Rademon Estate Shortcross Rye & Malt Irish Whiskey is priced at £65 / €80 and is available via the brand’s official website.
Last year, Queen Elizabeth II’s official Northern Ireland residence teamed up with Rademon Estate to release Hillsborough Castle and Gardens Shortcross Gin.
