Vintage Mashbills Tasting Pack – 10 x 50ml Bottles
Boann Distillery is thrilled to introduce the Vintage Mashbills Tasting Pack, which is comprised of ten different single pot still new make samples, produced from the mashbills of old distilleries, now lost to the annals of time.
These new make distillates were distilled by Boann Distillery as a part of Historian and Author, Fionnán O’Connor’s Ph.D. research which is in association with TU Dublin.
Now that the liquid experimentation element of Fionnán’s Ph.D. is complete, Boann Distillery are proud to offer these distillates in their complete set, to the public for a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the wide variations in new make distillate flavour profiles from these long lost Single Pot Still mashbills of old.
These distillates were produced adhering to the upmost scientific rigour of testing. All variables were held constant except the variations in the mashbills. This enables us to showcase the individual flavour contributions that each grain has on the new make distillate at various percentages of the mashbill.
Each Vintage Mashbill Tasting Pack contains 10 x 50ml bottles, each containing a different new make single pot still distillate. Every bottle is accompanied with a full historic background of the era in which this mashbill was in use, as well as the grains comprised in that mashbill.
This incredibly exciting tasting pack will be accompanied by a virtual tasting with Boann Distillery’s Head Distiller, Michael Walsh, and Fionnán O’Connor. They will take you through all ten new make distillates and outline the production processes that went into these mashbills, the challenges that working with high quantities of different grains presented as well as the full history of each of these mashbills.
This tasting will take place on Friday the 30th of July at 6pm IST (Irish Summer Time), in association with Belfast Whiskey Week. Purchasers of this tasting pack will receive a virtual invitation to this tasting from the Belfast Whiskey Week team, this will require us to share the Vintage Mashbills Tasting Pack purchasers’ email addresses for the purpose of receiving this email, but these will not be used for further communications not pertaining to this virtual tasting.
Only 500 tasting packs will be produced of the Vintage Mashbill campaign, by Boann Distillery.
