An Online Whisky Event with Sullivans Cove

An Online Whisky Event hosted by Fred Siggins, Brand & Operations Manager for Sullivans Cove Distillery.

Destination Cellars bring you the third installment of our Distant Socialising events for an evening of great whisky and stories with our local superstar friends at Sullivans Cove Distillery, where you can enjoy Fred's guided tasting (including two brand new releases and a pre-release!) from the comfort of your own home . This virtual tasting event will go live at 7.30pm Wednesday May 13th.

This event will be the first of its kind for Sullivans Cove, not only sending out a pre-release sample, but also allowing you to be part of the first side by side comparative tasting of their first ever American Oak Refill releases from their Cask Variations series.

We will send you out the sample bottles and then closer to the event we will send you an invitation to join the Zoom meeting. To participate all you will need is your computer or phone. Or you can enjoy the samples in the solitude and sanctity of your home at any time.

Here's the line up of great Sullivans Cove drams:

1. DOUBLE CASK Single Malt Whisky • 45%abv

A damn fine dram to get the taste buds going, Double Cask Batch DC105 is a marriage of portions of eight different casks ranging in age from 10 to 14 years. As well as American oak ex-bourbon casks, this batch also contains a high proportion of ex-tawny casks as well as whisky from two French oak casks previously used to mature Australian white wine for a complex, lively and fruit driven character.

2. NEW! AMERICAN OAK REFILL SINGLE CASK (TD0080) 47.1% Single Malt Whisky

The newest label from the Sullivans Cove Cask Variations Series, American Oak Refill, was released in March and sold out within a matter of days. TD0080 is the first ever bottling under the Sullivans Cove American Oak Refill label. TD0080 was distilled in February of 2006 and decanted in August of last year for a maturation of thirteen years in a single, 300L American oak cask previously filled with an older batch of Sullivans Cove Single Malt Whisky.

This exciting new whisky represents an evolution in the Sullivans Cove style. Unlike our standard American Oak ex-bourbon single cask label, these casks have never held bourbon. Originally commissioned by Sullivans Cove direct from the cooperage in the mid 1990s as virgin casks, they were first filled with an older batch of Sullivans Cove single malt whisky. Once that first batch was decanted and bottled, these casks were refilled with new make spirit. Thirteen years later, that refill spirit has reached its peak and is finally ready for release as Sullivans Cove American Oak Refill Cask.

3. NEW! AMERICAN OAK REFILL SINGLE CASK (TD0082) 47.2% Single Malt Whisky

American Oak Refill Single Cask TD0082 was distilled in February of 2006 and decanted in August of last year for a maturation of thirteen years in a single, 300L American oak cask previously filled with an older batch of Sullivans Cove Single Malt Whisky. Bottled at 47.2% ABV, this cask is one two being made available simultaneously as part of the first ever American Oak Refill release under our Cask Variations series.

4. Just off the bottling line! AMERICAN OAK TAWNY CASK 47.5% Single Cask TD0199 Single Malt Whisky

Part of our Cask Variations series, American Oak Tawny Single Cask TD0199 was aged for twelve years in an American oak cask previously used to mature Australian tawny, lending this whisky the fresh caramel and vanilla notes associated with American white oak, combined with the rich dried fruit flavours of port-style fortified wine. Aged for 11 years and bottled at 47.5% abv.
