The Connemara Pure Pot Still Peated Single Malt Irish Whiskey is unique because it is the only peated single malt Irish whiskey distilled in the world. Reminiscent of an Islay Scotch Whisky in style, Connemara is more elegant and full of complexity and richness. The uniqueness of concept and quality was recognised in both the International Spirits Challenge and the International Wine and Spirits Competition where it scooped two gold medals in 1996. A third gold medal has been awarded to Connemara Peated Single Malt in the 2002 International Wine and Spirits Competition. Rich age and wood characteristics contribute to the lingering taste and warming glow attributed to the finest malt whiskies. The famous Connemara region in the west of Ireland is a region of wild beauty, with majestic mountains, soft rain, mist, rivers, lakes and pure water carried eastward by the Atlantic winds. The Connemara Peated Single Malt is a taste of this majestic region of lakes and mountains. Connemara is a throwback to the traditional whiskey produced by tiny distilleries all over Ireland in the early 19th century, a style that seemed lost forever only a decade ago. The secret of the Connemara's special peated taste is in the drying process. Once the malted barley has germinated it is dried over a peat fire, the smoke rising through the malted barley giving it a distinct peaty flavour and aroma. The melange of pure clear spring water and peated malted barley give the Connemara a rare flavour. Slowly maturing for long years in oak casks, the natural ingredients and traditional distilling methods employed create a whiskey which is simply spectacular.
