Velvet Cap Irish Whiskey

Velvet Cap Irish whiskey is a small batch blend of malt and grain whiskeys sourced from the finest distilleries. After blending, the whiskey rests in a selection of bourbon, port and stouted rye casks to let the flavour marry.

The Velvet Cap brand has been revived by Blackwater Distillery in County Waterford. Velvet caps were traditionally worn by jockeys in point-to-point racing, dating from 1752. Riders raced over fence and ditch between two churches - from one steeple to another, hence the term 'steeplechase'.

Blended and bottled at 40% ABV by Blackwater Distillery.

Velvet Cap Peated Irish Whiskey

Gold winner at the Irish Whiskey Masters 2022! This special release is made with turf-dried malt and then aged in sherry casks. As you can imagine, these combined give this single malt from Blackwater a wonderfully gentle palate of peat smoke and biscuity malt tempered with a hint of Jerez. Overall, a well-balanced drop to be savoured.
