Distillers are the purists of whiskey making, and our Head Distiller, Brian Nation, fits that description to a tee. Having spent many years learning the finer points of the pot still, he is enthralled by what emerges from within the copper. The Distiller’s Safe is a tribute to the Irish pot still and reveals the true character of the distillate. In general, oak’s influence looms large over most Irish whiskey, but in order to showcase the craft of a distiller, Brian decided he needed to let the distillate take centre stage. Named after the instrument that allows Brian to fine tune a whiskey’s style, The Distiller’s Safe is relatively unaffected by the influence of oak. One sip speaks volumes about the beautiful complexity created by a pot still. Endowed with a smooth mouth feel, The Distiller’s Safe carries distinct sweetness from Barley Sugar and gentle notes of apricot, cinnamon and melon. Lighter than whiskey that’s been heavily influenced by oak, its finish is luminous and zesty. Long before barrels make their mark, a pot still has the first say. The Distiller’s Safe is a fitting testament to the iconic Irish Pot Still, and the craft required to master it.
