Ballyhoo is a single grain whiskey produced, matured and bottled at the young Connacht distillery established in the north-west of Ireland in 2015.
After four years’ maturation in white oak bourbon casks, Ballyhoo is finished for six to nine months in port casks from Portugal’s famous Douro Valley. The whiskey is made from 93% maize and 7% malted barley, both selected and imported directly from France.
Bottled at 43% ABV, this single grain is bursting with character and elegance. Triple distillation in column stills and the combination of bourbon and port cask maturation bring complexity and richness to the whiskey’s vanilla, fruity and subtly spiced notes.
Ballyhoo is the perfect introduction to Irish whiskey: elegant, delicate and fruity.
