It's A Riot Of Wood

kinahans hybrid cask


Irish whiskey is made in wooden casks, which develop most of its complex flavours. The Kasc Project is an escape into the new and previously unknown ways of whiskey making, using hybrid casks. Each cask is individually constructed from a mix of 5 different types of trees, each selected to create a blend of rich new flavours. Inspired by the original whiskey making culture that rejected tradition and the norm, The Kasc Project pushes whiskey making methods to the next level. Daring and unconventional - it’s a riot of wood.

"The result is an outstanding whiskey that could instigate a game of flavour bingo: cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet pastry, apricot and herbs are just some that will fill your card, while a load of woody notes steadily percolate and bristle throughout. A highly successful whiskey experiment – and great value too". —Nick Moyle (Independent UK).
