Awarded Ireland’s Best New Irish Whiskey 2021 – The Irish Whiskey Awards

Rademon Estate Distillery is proud to release the first inaugural release of Shortcross Irish Whiskey.  This unique release is the first Irish Whiskey to be wholly distilled and released by a new Irish Whiskey distillery in Northern Ireland since the 1920’s and the first whiskey to be released  outside of the Old Bushmills Distillery since the closure of the Old Comber and Coleraine distilleries.

This whiskey was double distilled on Rademon Estate Distillery’s original 450L copper pot still which at the time was the smallest whiskey still in use on the island of Ireland.

The whiskey has been matured in a unique cask combination that uses neither traditional bourbon or sherry casks. 

In an industry first the inaugural batch of Shortcross Irish Whiskey is matured fully in Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux Red Wine casks before being finished in chinquapin oak, the first time this unique cask combination has been used in Irish Whiskey. 

These casks have delivered less than 700 bottles for this inaugural release.

This release will be presented in a branded box with two tasting glasses.
