This limited edition is inspired by two of the distillery founders' past – Ger and Denis McCarthy were trawlermen off the coast of West Cork before they entered the whiskey industry. The third co-founder, John O'Connell, came up with the idea of a bespoke spherical bottle, as reference to vintage glass fishing floats.
Patiently matured in first-fill bourbon casks and finished in Kelvin Cooperage Virgin Oak casks.
Nose: Hay, oak chips, sawdust, vanilla
Palate: Very light with slight fruitiness, but the main flavour at the end remains black pepper
