JJ Corry The Gael Irish Whiskey

The Chapel Gate Irish Whiskey Co

Named after a Bicycle J.J. Corry invented, the first release The Gael took two years to develop. First, they sourced excellent quality and very rare mature Irish Whiskey. Then they set about classifying each cask we have into a particular flavour block.

Finally they began blending to create a Classic Irish Whiskey, one bursting with juicy fruit flavours. The Gael has not spent any time on their farm, rather it is our first attempt at beginning to express the house style of whiskey they would like to make in the coming years, once their own stock is mature. The first batch is only 7500 bottles.

The Gael is a 60% Malt 40% grain blend, and is a blend of some of the oldest whiskies they have in stock. It is comprised of:

  • 5% 26 Year Old Single Malt Ex-Sherry Butt
  • 27.5% 11 Year Old Single Malt
  • 27.5% 15 Year Old Single Malt
  • 40% 7 Year Old Single Grain
