Launching today at 4pm, The Cuige, is Killowen's mark on the world of poitín. Killowen Distillery believe in quality poitín and that it can be 'premiumised', they also believe that poitín should be put on a pedestal. As such, Killowen have made a peated poitín worthy of a hand-crafted pedestal, carved from a Killowen whiskey cask. Only 192 sets have been made making it rare and quite collectable.

This unique peated mash bill offers a little more oat than Killowen's core mash-bill, as a tribute to the integral part oat has played in Irish distillation history. After a 24-hour flame-fed, double-distillation, and worm-tub condensation, the spirit is laid in casks at full strength for 10 weeks, as is the maximum allowable time by law. Each bottle is painstakingly, hand-filled, hand-labelled, wax-dipped, and hand-written. Each set has its own unique rustic pedestal made from a Killowen cask stave which has been, heat-straightened, carved for bottles, engraved with the Killowen Cuige Logo and wax finished. This release truly is 'Very Rare'. As usual, all your information is on the Killowen Label.
