Sailor’s Home is welcoming seekers, searchers, explorers and adventurers to discover its debut range of three truly unique Irish whiskey expressions – The Haven, The Journey and The Horizon. Inspired by a spirit of adventure, Sailor’s Home’s flavours are formed in Ireland, but shaped by the world, thanks to pushing the boundaries of distilling, blending, ageing and finishing. Sailor’s Home will take whiskey aficionados and cocktail lovers alike, on a new and flavourful journey, to be enjoyed in great places and great serves.
Inspired by the rugged and untamed Wild Atlantic Way on the western coast of Ireland and the original Sailor’s Home, a shelter built for the international community of seafarers travelling through the port of Limerick from Spain, America and the Caribbean in the 1800s; Sailor’s Home is unlike any other Irish Whiskey.
Crafted by renowned master whiskey maker Dr. Jack Ó’Sé, each expression has been created to reward those brave enough to seek out new flavour experiences, in great places and great serves:
The Journey Irish Whiskey (The Explorer Series) is the go-to whiskey for adventurers. The liquid’s journey is remarkable - from an initial ageing in virgin American oak, followed by recasking into American bourbon barrels before blending with malt Irish whiskey that has been matured in American bourbon and finished in Jamaican rum casks. The resulting liquid has tropical fruit and rum notes with sticky toffee pudding and banana detectable before a long, almost sweet finish. Explorers can stir The Journey Irish Whiskey into an Old Fashioned or enjoy neat, £41.95.
The Haven Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is Sailor’s Home first release of the unique single pot still Irish Whiskey style - created with both malted and un-malted Irish barley and oats that is then triple pot distilled resulting in a rich, creamy and smooth distillate. The new make spirit is initially matured in American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, giving the liquid a captivating flavour full of pot still spices, roasted almonds and vanilla notes whilst the finish is long with brown sugar and ripe black fruits. The Haven Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is best enjoyed neat or in a well-balanced Manhattan cocktail, £52.95.
The Horizon 10 Year Old Irish Whiskey (The Islands Series) is crafted from exceptional Irish malt and grain whiskeys that have been matured for at least 10 years in American bourbon barrels. The remarkable whiskey is then filled into carefully selected Barbados rum casks for a finishing period of 6 months introducing lush, refined flavour twists typical of Caribbean rums like caramelised banana and rich brown sugar. The Horizon 10 Year Old Irish Whiskey, the first in the Islands Series, should be experienced neat, £58.95.
