The Dublin Liberties Irish Whiskey Keeper's Coin
This 16-year-old single malt is full of aromas of soft toffee, fudge, toasted hazelnuts & baked banana with sea salt caramel. On the palate poached pear, warm treacle tart & big fruity note of dried apricots dominate. Sixteen years in American oak casks bestow a substantial wood influence giving a salted butter mouth-feel. The dark auburn hue is imparted by Pedro Ximénez sherry butts in which the whiskey finally rests. The finish is smooth & round with honeyed sweetness. Savour this straight up, with just a drop of water to open it up.

THE LIBERTIES, DUBLIN CITY
The Dublin Liberties Distillery is nestled in the heart of Dublin's historic distilling district called the Liberties. The Liberties is a place where every stone tells a story. History is buried deep within its walls. It was the bedrock for the working class people of Dublin, whether you were high in society, low in society, no matter what your vice was everyone wanted to be in the Liberties. In the late 1800’s/1900’s there Liberties was the hub for creatives, thinkers, distillers, brewers….there were no rules.
An area known for centuries as ‘Hell’. This wild and wayward quarter of old Dublin, nestled outside the city walls, was notorious for mayhem and riotous behaviour with danger and intrigue waiting on every cobbled corner. But it was industrious too. Alongside the old distilleries were weaving mills, forges, printing-presses, tanneries and illicit taverns. Everyone from tradesmen, low born visitors and the cream of society were all welcome.
KEEPERS COIN 16 YEAR OLD IRISH WHISKEY
In the 1600’s under Christ church cathedral, there were a series of crypts that were used as illicit drinking dens. The Cellar Keepers each had their own coins and casks – which is where the name Keepers Coin derives from. Very recently, excavations under Christ Church Cathedral have unearthed a purse full of silver coins and a number of leather bottles still containing alcohol.
