Kilbeggan Single Grain Aged 8 Years
is a light and soft single grain whiskey that is made from white corn at the Cooley Distillery in County Louth. Kilbeggan Single Grain Aged 8 Years is completely unique as Ireland’s only aged Single Grain Irish whiskey. This premium expression from the Kilbeggan family is soft and sweet with its main ingredient being corn rather than barley. It is matured for 8 years in ex-bourbon casks in the 250 year old warehouses at the Kilbeggan distillery. This one of a kind whiskey gives a rare glimpse into the wonderfully smooth style of grain whiskey and demonstrates the craft and heritage that goes into producing all Kilbeggan whiskeys.This used to be known as Greenore and is very popular with drinkers looking for something easy going, delicate and smooth.
Imagine an all-corn American whiskey matured in refill casks. Whisky writer Jim Murray believes the column stills at Cooley make some of the best grain whiskey available, and it’s easy to see why from this eight-year-old.
