Michael Collins Blend

Wirströms Pub in Stockholm is an Irish style pub with the largest selection of Irish Whiskey in Sweden. So it might be the only Pub in Sweden where you will find this tasty whiskey. I found it an enjoyable whiskey



Named for the legendary Irish hero, synonymous with independence.
Michael Collins Irish Whiskey embodies the strong character, bold heritage
and uncompromising authenticity of a truly remarkable Irish Spirit.
Michael Collins Blend

A refined blend of malt Irish whiskey and grain Irish whiskey, Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey is double distilled for proper balance of purity and character, then matured in bourbon seasoned casks from 4 to 12 years.
With a full, clean taste delicately balanced between honey sweet, citrus and malt flavors, and a fresh oak finish, Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a variety of premium cocktails.

Crafting The blend
1. Each batch begins with the finest of ingredients; soft and pure fresh spring water from the mountainside of Slieve na gCloc and locally harvested Spring barley.

2. Malted Barley
Barley is the key to Irish whiskey. For the crafting of a truly authentic Irish whiskey full of complex aromas and flavours, all the barley in Michael Collins Whiskeys is malted

3. Double Distillation
Michael Collins Whiskeys are unique among Irish whiskeys as the malted barley is distilled twice and only twice in small, long-necked copper pot stills, allowing for considerably more contact between the copper and the spirit. This process, combined with longer distillation time, removes impurities while preserving the flavours and aromas of the premium ingredients, resulting in a more refined whiskey.


4. TIME IN A BOURBON-SEASONED CASK
It takes three years of aging for a whiskey to be authentically Irish.
Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey is aged in small bourbon-seasoned
casks for significantly longer to develop their distinctive, more flavourful and complex characteristics. Through the cool summers and mild winters of Ireland,
the casks rest in an 18th Century granite warehouse for at least four years
and for as long as 12 years to allow the whiskeys to age evenly
and develop their smooth, interesting characteristics


5. THE ART OF BLENDING
Truly a liquid art form, whiskey blending requires
skill, knowledge and experience. Michael Collins Whiskeys
are the work of a world-renowned, award-winning Master Blender. Malt Irish whiskeys are blended with grain Irish whiskeys to create the uniquely refined and flavourful Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey
