More about Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey

Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey is a bold, but exceptionally smooth, tripe distilled blended Irish whiskey made from an exceptional blend of grain and single malt Irish whiskey aged in bourbon casks.

According to Jazz Adams, the Western Cape Sales Manager for Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey at Halewood South Africa, Irish whiskey is typically made from three primary ingredients: malted and unmalted barley, water, and yeast. The use of both malted and unmalted barley contributes to the distinctive smoothness and complexity of Irish whiskey.

A hallmark of many Irish whiskeys is triple distillation, says Jazz. Unlike some Scotch whiskies that undergo only two rounds of distillation, the triple distillation process in Ireland is believed to create a smoother, lighter spirit. This meticulous approach reflects the dedication to producing a refined and approachable whiskey.

Irish whiskey is often aged in a variety of casks, including ex-bourbon, sherry, and wine casks. The maturation process takes place in the cool, damp cellars of Irish distilleries, allowing the whiskey to absorb the unique characteristics of the wood and develop a nuanced flavour profile.

How to Drink

Pour your whiskey gently. A standard pour is about 30-60ml, but you can adjust it according to your preference. Hold the glass at the base to avoid warming the whiskey with your hands.

Swirl the whiskey gently in your glass and bring it up to your nose. Inhale the aromas, taking note of the various scents. Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey offers delightful notes of honey, malt, and subtle fruit, making it a perfect summer sipper.

Take small sips and let the whiskey rest on your palate for a moment before swallowing. This allows the flavours to unfold. Notice the balance of sweetness, spice, and fruitiness that Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey offers. As the whiskey warms in your mouth, you’ll experience its complexity.
