About this deal

a b c d e f Curtis, Maurice (2013). The Liberties: A History. The History Press. ISBN 978-1845887711. The pantheon of Irish Single Pot Still Whiskies is small, but I personally consider the style to be one of my favorites. Something about the distillation of malted barley (as in single malt) with unmalted barley in the same pot still plumbs the depths of that grain’s capacity for complexity while offering more body and an almost inherent polish that’s hard to find equaled even in the world of single malt scotch. I’ve reviewed a book on the subject, and my original review of Redbreast 12 contains my thoughts on the style as a whole. a b c d e f g "Our History". powerswhiskey.ie. Powers Whiskey . Retrieved 11 January 2017. [ permanent dead link] Powers Irish Rye, 43.2%, triple distilled in a column still, non age statement, matured in a selection of American oak virgin casks and ex-bourbon casks, with the rye sourced from County Wexford [13]

The majority of Powers John's Lane 12 Year is aged in used bourbon casks, with a small contribution of distillate aged in used Oloroso sherry casks. It is somewhat similar to Redbreast 12 Year Irish Whiskey but it uses much less of the Sherry Cask component, is a higher proof and is non-chill filtered. To me this gives Powers John's Lane a richer taste and a more satisfying pour. Sweet whiskey spice and vanilla move easily across the palate with malt, honey, leather and candied dark fruit coming through. That sweet malty pure pot still character is just astounding here.

It was said of Powers that “you were not going to be guaranteed the best wage in the industry, but you were guaranteed a boss that knew your name”. This sounds like something we as 21st Century beings would be appalled to hear, but, again, this was a time of extreme poverty and social divide and people were struggling so when you received some dignity, a bit of recognition and an ounce of care from your employer that went a hell of a long way. A sort of Employer Brand 1.0, if you will; treating everyone as part of a family, which is how all the glossy design agencies and startups like to describe themselves today in 2018, don’t they?! Curious how these things come around in cycles. Powers Irish whiskey range was also very innovative with their labelling and brand marque, they invested heavily in design, wanting to do it right from the offset with a view not to redo their brand, logo and bottle over and over.

Retrieved 11 January 2017.In 1966, with the Irish whiskey industry still struggling following Prohibition in the United States, the Anglo-Irish Trade War and the rise of competition from Scotch whiskey, John Power & Son joined forces with the only other remaining distillers in the Irish Republic, the Cork Distilleries Company and their Dublin rivals John Jameson & Son, to form Irish Distillers. Soon after, in a bold move, Irish Distillers decided to close all of their existing distilleries, and to consolidate production at a new purpose-built facility in Midleton (the New Midleton Distillery) alongside their existing Old Midleton Distillery. The new distillery opened in 1975, and a year later, production ceased at John's Lane Distillery and began anew in Cork, [1] with Powers Gold Label and many other Irish whiskeys reformulated from single pot stills whiskeys to blends. Both Irish whiskey and Scotch whisky are grain-based spirits. Many modern Irish whiskeys are lighter or more accessible in style than their Scottish counterparts, thanks to the differences that have developed in distilling techniques.
