Fercullen Estate Series No. 3, The Gates

Irish Whiskey from the Powerscourt Distillery

The Powerscourt distillery began distilling in 2018 and is located in Powerscourt Estate in Co. Wicklow. While the estate is owned by the Slazenger Family, the distillery was founded and owned by business partners Gerry Ginty, Ashley Gardiner and subsequently Mike Peirce and son Alex. Noel Sweeney was on hand from the beginning, to oversee the distillation. Through his connections with Cooley distillery, Noel was able to source and blend mature whiskey in order to launch products in the Fercullen range before any whiskey was ready from the Forsyths stills at Powerscourt.

This is the third and final release of the Fercullen Estate Series, The Gates. It is Powerscourt distilled single malt whiskey and a marriage of ex-bourbon matured malt, some of which was finished/influenced by Amarone Casks. Botted at 46% abv and non-chill filtered.
