Powerscourt Distillery Unveils the Small Batch Fercullen Falls

Powerscourt Distillery has announced its brand new release, Fercullen Falls, a blend of malt and grain whiskeys.

Fercullen Falls has a high malt content highlighting the style of the Powerscourt Distillery. The malt whiskey has matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, and the grain is in a combination of ex-bourbon and new heavy char oak casks, making it a 50/50 blend. RRP for Fercullen Falls is €38 and is available nationwide.

Head of Whiskey for the Distillery, John Cashman, said: “With this release, The Powerscourt Distillery is heralding the start of a new era for the Distillery with the inclusion of malt whiskey distilled right here in Powerscourt. As a proud Wicklow man, it is wonderful to be part of the first (legal!) whiskey distilled in Wicklow in over a hundred years. The team has worked very hard to develop and deliver Fercullen Falls Blended Irish Whiskey and we are very pleased with the results.”

“The 50% Malt content in the blend adds to the complexity and depth of flavour, which is very different to what other blended Irish whiskeys are offering,” said Powerscourt Distillery’s Paul Corbett, Head Distiller and Blender.

Drawing from its unique location, the name refers to the Powerscourt waterfall, Ireland’s highest waterfall at 121 metres. Its contemporary design evokes thoughts of whiskey falling into a glass and shared amongst friends.

Caroline Gardiner, Head of Marketing, said: “This new core expression from Powerscourt Distillery will ensure our whiskey is relevant to a new generation. A consumer audience which is driving the growth of Irish whiskey, seeking quality, not quantity.”

The whiskey is bottled at 43% ABV, and with its higher than standard malt whiskey blend, it’s perfect for enjoying straight or as a base for your favourite cocktail.
