Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey Single Grain (750 ml)
Distilled at 86 proof, Kilbeggan Single Grain is a sweet spirit that absorbs the flavors of the casks it ages in. After aging in ex-bourbon barrels, it is finished in a marriage of ex-bourbon and different fortified wine barrels, giving it a smoothness that makes it ideal for cocktails, as well as a depth of flavor that allows it to be appreciated neat.

Kilbeggan® Single Grain furthers the spirit of innovation found within the Kilbeggan Distilling Co. family of spirits and serves as a tribute to the townspeople of its namesake. For two hundred years, the humble town of Kilbeggan produced a whiskey, beloved the world over. But when tough times shuttered the distillery doors, the townspeople came together to keep the whiskey alive. They banded together to pay for the distillery license, and put years of hard work, late nights, and sacrificed into bringing the distillery back to life. Their dedication to honoring the whiskey-making traditions of the past, while creating a better future inspired the creation of Kilbeggan Single Grain.
The notion that “single grain” describes a whiskey made with just one grain is a common misperception. Rather, the term refers to whiskey made in a single location using malted barley and at least one other grain. 94% of the mash bill for Kilbeggan Single Grain is made of meticulously-sourced corn, with the other 6% being malted barley.
