Lambay Single Malt 20 Years Old

Lambay Irish Whiskey Company have released their first age statement ultra premium whiskey, The Lambay Single Malt 20 Years Old Castle Prestige Edition. Lambay Whiskey brings together the indulgent flair of cognac, one of the richest French Eaux-de-Vie and oak barrels, renowned for what they impart to liquid. The resulting liquid is endlessly elegant - resonant, fruity, at times woody, and with toasted notes and a whisper of spice.


Lambay Whiskey

The story of Lambay Whiskey centers around two great families, Baring & Camus, as-well as one mysterious and alluring island. The House of Camus, true to its calling as the world’s leading family-owned Cognac producer, reveres the terroir that is home to its exquisite Cognacs and holds firmly its commitment to crafting the best Cognac in the world. Sharing similar values and the rich heritage of the emblematic Baring family, stewards of Lambay Island, both great houses are committed to creating best-in-class Irish whiskey with a Cognac cask finish. One of dynasty and devilment, rarity and refinement, a pure taste of the extraordinary.

Lambay Single Malt 20 Years Old – The Castle Prestige Edition

A luxurious triple distilled 20-year-old Lambay Single Malt Irish Whiskey. This superior aged distillate has been delicately sourced from a leading Irish distillery and carefully aged in bourbon barrels for 18 years, before being finished for a further 2 years in Cognac casks that have been exposed to the sea air under the watchful eye of Lambay’s Master Blender, Yonael Bernard.

This product is a story of true collaboration - not only with whom we sourced our liquid, and the cross international teams involved but also through the medium of living art working alongside local Dublin artist - David Norton.
