‘Knockmealdowns’ honours the Knockmealdown mountain range, which straddles the border between County Tipperary and Waterford and overlooks the Ahearn Farm. A particularly picturesque spot, the Knockmealdowns mountains are home to the ‘Vee’, a V-shaped turn on the road up Sugarloaf Hill. A number of stories relate to a stunningly beautiful lake close to the Vee called Bay Lough. Local legend tells that the lake is bottomless and the waters haunted by an unfortunate woman called ‘Petticoat Loose’ who was banished there to empty the lake with a thimble. Sourced from an undisclosed distillery this single malt was aged for 10 years in 1st-fill ex-bourbon barrels. Released in 2016, bottled at 47% ABV yielding a coincidental 1,916 bottles…Tipperary’s Boutique Distillery opened in December of 2020, with the capacity to produce just 9 casks a week.
Opens with fresh oak, developing into hot caramel sauce with notes of chocolate and vanilla.
Light and smooth – sweet honey cut through with citrus notes, then becoming savoury and peppery.
Oaky with drying tannins and just a touch of ginger spice. Like Watershed and the Rising, each bottle of Knockmealdowns is individually numbered.
