The Pearse Lyons Distillery has celebrated the general release of the exclusive Pearse 5-Year-Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey. The single malt carries the first new five-year age statement to appear on an Irish whiskey in more than 25 years.
The limited release whiskey was produced on two small-batch copper pot stills, and aged in bourbon casks. Presented in 4,000 individually numbered bottles.
This whiskey will exclusively be on sale in SuperValu’s Premium Irish Whiskey section and select on-trade establishments nationwide.
Gearoid Cahill, Head Distiller at the Pearse Lyons Distillery said: “The release of the Pearse Single Malt 5-Year Old Irish Whiskey marks a historic milestone in the re-evolution of the Irish Whiskey distilling industry. We are really proud to introduce the first new five- year age statement Irish whiskey in Ireland in more than 25 years.”
The development of this new Irish whiskey stream began in 2011 when the late Dr. Pearse Lyons, who was keen to revisit his roots in Irish brewing and distilling, transported two small-batch copper pot stills from Kentucky to Ireland.
John Cooney, Spirits Trading Manager at SuperValu said: “Irish whiskey is currently experiencing an overwhelming resurgence and this new Pearse Lyons 5-Year-Old single malt will certainly generate a real excitement for Irish whiskey enthusiasts.”
The distinctive pot stills began making spirit in Ireland in 2012 and when the Pearse Lyons Distillery opened in 2017 in the heart of Dublin’s Whiskey District, they took pride of place, nestled in the sanctuary of the refurbished St. James Church.
