The Emerald Isle, which celebrates the 'Seven Wonders of Ireland' with seven exquisite pieces from masters of their respective arts - jewellers, cabinet makers, horologists, glassmakers, and whiskey craftsmen, became the world's most expensive whiskey ever when it fetched $2m at auction in the US, overtaking The Macallan Fine and Rare 60-Year-Old which sold in 2019 for $1.9m.

The Taoscán was awarded a Master from The Spirits Business Awards in the Masters Design Award category and just recently received two iLuxury Awards for Packaging Design and Luxury Drinks Design.

"Commenting on the accolades, Tiago Russo, Chief Design Officer, The Craft Irish Whiskey Co., said, 'This has truly been a historical year for the entire team at The Craft Irish Whiskey Co.

"The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. Founder and CEO Jay Bradley said, 'What a year it has been for the Craft Irish Whiskey Co. Our entire vision is built around obsessive whiskey perfection and reinstating Irish whiskey to the great glorious heights it deserves. So much time and craftsmanship goes into all our whiskeys, from the liquid to the packaging and all the design elements that complement our sets, whether it’s a collectable Fabergé egg or a bespoke timepiece. To be recognised for our pioneering work means the world to me and my team. I am beyond proud of all we have achieved and continue to achieve, and I can’t wait to unveil what we have in store for 2022 and beyond.'


"The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. is gearing up for another award-winning and record-breaking year. First up will be the official launch of its revolutionary new whiskey; The Taoscán. Triple distilled and triple casked, blended across four different types of wood, The Taoscán is sure to delight the palate when 8,000 bottles are released for a RRP of €600/£500.

"The Taoscán is the world's first single malt to be finished in French Chestnut and Tawny Port barrels, crafted from a world-class distillate, and matured for over a decade in White Oak American Bourbon barrels and Sherry Oloroso butts. For its final two years, The Taoscán was split and finished in virgin French Chestnut and French Oak Tawny Port casks, then the two spirits were reunited in an impeccable balance of flavour and aroma.

"The company will also bring out a second release of The Devil's Keep which will see a further 666 bottles released.

"In addition to The Taoscán and a second release of The Devil's Keep, the company is planning another four releases for 2022, details of which will be announced in the coming months.
