Hinch 5 Year Old Double Wood Irish Whiskey
The Hinch Distillery is located just south of Belfast, Northern Ireland in the grounds of the beautiful Killaney Estate. The distillery takes its name from the nearby town of Ballynahinch, whose name in Irish translates as ‘town of the island’. Within the distillery design Hinch have incorporated many unique elements allowing them to validate their ‘craft’ credentials and also position themselves as key innovators within the Irish whiskey category. The marriage of triple distillation and a maturation process that captures the unique union of spirit and wood imparts a flavour like no other in their whiskies. To craft the Hinch 5 Year Old Double Wood, only the finest ex-Bourbon casks are selected for extra maturation in Virgin American Oak Barrels for a minimum of one year. This second maturation gives the whiskey subtle depth, natural colour and character as befitting the use of "two woods".
