Single Grain

Typically produced in a continuous column still (or Coffey still), Irish grain whiskey is generally distilled from any of corn, rye, wheat or barley, is less complex than pot stilled malt whiskey and is mostly used in blends. Very few distillers produce a single grain variety, however the award-winning Cooley Distillery in County Louth is making waves with its eight-year-old Kilbeggan (formerly Greenore) and Teeling’s single grain whiskey is aged in California red-wine barrels.
