Walsh Whiskey has collaborated with Dingle’s Dick Mack’s bar for its latest release, a whiskey finished in peated red ale beer casks.

The Irishman – Peated Red Ale Cask Finish is a once-off, triple distilled blend of single malt and single pot still Irish whiskeys. The liquid is from Walsh Whiskey and was matured in American oak bourbon casks, before being aged for an additional 9 months in a peated red ale cask from Dick Mack’s Brewhouse in Dingle. It is non-chill filtered and bottled at 50.1% ABV.

This is a single cask whiskey and as such, just 276 bottles were produced, with the majority pre-sold to members of The Irish Whiskey Society, Dublin Fire Brigade Whiskey Club and Carlow Whiskey Society. It will be served to patrons of Dick Mack’s, and an allocation of 120 bottles will be available for sale from James J. Fox of Dublin. The whiskey has an RRP of €79.99.

It is the third time that Walsh Whiskey has collaborated with Dick Mack’s Brewhouse. Previous releases were The Irishman – Coffee Stout Cask finish (2018) and Writers’ Tears – Seaweed IPA Cask finish (2020).

Walsh Whiskey Managing Director, Bernard Walsh, said: “Finn (MacDonnell), his whiskey adviser Peter White and his Brewhouse colleagues, Graham Murray, Brian Murtagh, Aussie Barrett and Seamus Lynch are our partners and friends in innovation. As well as creating delicious concoctions, we always knock great fun out of our collaborations. I am very proud of this peated red ale finish to our The Irishman Founder’s Reserve whiskey, reinforcing our belief to always give more.”

Finn MacDonnell of Dick Mack’s Brewhouse & Pub said: “With three unique bottlings together with Walsh Whiskey so far, we seem to be doing something right with these special creations. The only problem being that we risk losing a few friends given the number of people looking to buy the whiskey before it’s even in the bottle! Can nobody keep a secret in Dingle? We won’t let that stop us though, as we have plenty more ideas that need exploring with Bernard!”
