100% Irish barley whisky
A Single Malt Irish Whiskey that combines two traditional techniques, double and triple Pot Still distillation. Exclusive use of first fill ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry barrels.
Matthew Fireplace is composed of peated and non-peated Single Malt: the non-peated part was distilled with double distillation in order to maintain a more important character and body, rich in aromas.
For the peated part, however, we preferred triple distillation in order to make the smoky note gentler and lighter, as if it were a thin veil of smoke that is almost imperceptible but which gives depth to the tasting.
The quality of the wood and its freshness are the real determining factor in the success of good aging: we prefer to refine the whiskey for fewer years inside an excellent barrel still full of aromas rather than a long aging in an empty barrel which is now it has nothing left to give to the distillate.
