WHISKEY

Spicebox Whisky

Spicebox Canadian Spiced Whisky was inspired by a certain Canadian distiller's Prohibition-era practice of shipping wooden barrels of whisky marked "spices" to the United States. The whisky starts off as a blend of whisky's aged for 3 to 6 years in bourbon barrels. Vanilla and spice flavors are then extracted and added to the whisky through cold infusion. The master blender admits to using three different types of vanilla beans but the exact beans and remaining spices are his secret. Available in 3 distinctive varieties:

  • Original Spiced Whiskey 37% ABV – A secret recipe blending the finest aged Canadian whisky with Vanilla and exotic spices to produce a smooth warming whiskey perfect for mixing

  • Cinnamon Spiced 33% ABV – a blend of aged premium Canadian whisky steeped in cinnamon bark to produce a warm spicy drink of uncharacteristic smoothness.

  • Pumpkin Spice 35% ABV – An autumn and winter favourite, blending spices with pumpkin and aged Canadian whisky to produce a delicious smooth taste of warm seasoned pumpkins

The Irishman Founders Reserve

The Founder’s Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish Pot Still Whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by founder Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of two styles, Single Malt and Single Pot Still. The proportions used are 70% Single Malt and 30% Single Pot Still. This is unusual in itself, as it is the only Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% Grain or Column still whiskey. This results in a much more flavoursome whiskey. The Founder’s Reserve is triple distilled and matured in Bourbon Casks. A Gold Medal Winner at The International Spirits Challenge in London, one of the highest rated Irish Whiskey’s in Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible with 93 points – “Quite a Wonderful Blend” and most recently awarded Gold at “The Whiskey Masters” as overall winner in “The Irish Whiskey Category”. Quite simply an amazing Whiskey!
