TÁIN Part One Echoes of Éire Series

$ 399

Introducing TÁIN. The first ever release in our Echoes of Éire series. Based on the ancient Irish epic, “Táin Bó Cúailnge” or “The Cattle Raid Of Cooley.”, TÁIN depects the epic battle between Cú Chulainn and Queen Medb of Connacht over the possession of Donn Culaigne, the Brown Bull of Cooley. Beyond his physical attributes, Donn Cuailnge embodies the wealth and status of a chieftain in ancient Ireland, where cattle were a primary measure of a person’s wealth. Possessing such a bull would elevate a ruler’s status significantly.

To pay homage to Ireland’s national epic, we looked to source a whiskey born of the land upon which this mythic battle took place. Luckily, we managed to source a spectacular cask of 20 year old, double distilled, single malt from one of Ireland’s most respected distilleries. Aged entirely is a single first-fill ex-bourbon cask, we felt this expression perfectly encapsulated the raw spirit of Ireland, just as the story of Táin represents Ireland’s spirited past.
