    Ireland’s first single malt whiskey matured fully in virgin Hungarian Oak.

    This Hungarian Oak cask is one of the most unusual and interesting Dingle Distillery Founding Father casks to be released. This 129 litre cask was specially coopered in Hungary, using their native Sessile oak which were felled in the Zemplén mountains in North Eastern Hungary.
    this Founding Fathers Cask was filled by Zoltán Vári, a Hungarian native, on the 24th of May 2014, with Dingle Distillery’s signature single malt spirit. Zoltán specially sourced this virgin cask from his home country and had it transported all the way to the Dingle Distillery for his spirit to be laid down in. It was in this cask that the spirit spent its full 5 years and 3 months maturing before being bottled on the 30th of August 2019.

    This unique Founding Fathers expression was bottled under the title of “Zoltán’s Special #1 Granny’s Spirit”, which pays homage to Zoltán’s Grandmother, who had never touched a drop of alcohol in her life.

    The whiskey was bottled at cask strength, 60.4% ABV (120.8 Proof), without chill filtration or any caramel colouring.

    The cask yielded a total of 142 bottles and a select 24 bottles have been placed on exclusive sale with L. Mulligan Whiskey Shop in Dublin city, which will be presented with a bespoke Zoltán’s Special gift box and miniature sample of the Hungarian oak Single Malt so that the lucky new owner doesn’t need to open the full bottle, if they don’t want to.
