Made from 100% malted barley and produced in small batches of up to 30 hand selected first-fill ex-bourbon casks. This ‘Heritage Collection’ Single Malt Irish Whiskey release pays tribute to over 240 years of our extraordinary history.
From its founding in 1779 Kinahans was a company of innovative thinkers and outsiders with their own unconventional approach to whiskey making, opposing traditions and crossing boundaries set by the established norm.
Irish whiskey is made in wooden casks, which develop most of its complex flavours. The Kasc Project is an escape into the new and previously unknown ways of whiskey making, using hybrid casks. Each cask is individually constructed from a mix of 5 different types of trees, each selected to create a blend of rich new flavours. Inspired by the original whiskey making culture that rejected tradition and the norm, The Kasc Project pushes whiskey making methods to the next level. Daring and unconventional – it’s a riot of wood.
