Description

The 1951 Knappogue Castle is one of the oldest distilled whiskeys available in Ireland. The whiskey came from the old Tullamore Distillery which closed permanently in 1954. Mark Edwin Andrews bought the casks after it closed having returned to the land of his ancestors from America to live in Knappogue Castle in County Clare.

He managed to source a number of casks from different vintages, most of these were given away as gifts or were used for personal consumption.

After 36 years in casks, he released 1951 commercially in 1987.

To this day the 1951 vintage of Knappogue Castle is still highly regarded as one of the finest whiskeys ever made but retains the flavors that are only found in Older casked Irish whiskeys

Knappogue Castle

In 1966, Mark Edwin Andrews and his wife Lavone´ purchased Knappogue Castle in County Clare after returning to Ireland from the US. As they renovated the structure, Mark Andrews amassed a collection of rare single malt Irish whiskey, which he privately bottled and named Knappogue Castle 1951 after the historic building. He focused primarily on the whiskeys once produced at the B. Daly Distillery in County Offaly, which ceased whiskey production in 1954.
In 1998, his son, Mark Edwin Andrews III, launched Great Spirits LLC, which made Knappogue Castle 1951 available to the public. In 1999, the company introduced vintage-dated single malts, under the same brand name. Knappogue Castle 1951 is one of the oldest and rarest commercially available Irish whiskeys on the planet. This highly distinctive whiskey was distilled in 1951 and aged in sherry casks for 36 years.
