About Tullamore D.E.W.
Tullamore D.E.W. is the second largest Irish whiskey in the world in the fastest growing category. It has been widely acclaimed by whiskey connoisseurs, most recently winning five awards at this year's prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC), including 'Gold Best in Class' for its highly acclaimed Tullamore D.E.W. 10-Year-Old Reserve. The brand has now achieved an impressive record of 30 gold medal awards in the last 10 years.
With an intriguing smooth yet complex character, Tullamore D.E.W. is triple distilled, but is also a unique blend of all three types of Irish whiskeys; the pot still, malt and grain whiskeys. Using only the finest grains and purest water, it is patiently aged in specially seasoned oak casks to develop its complexity – making it the perfect toast when out, or with friends at home. Tullamore D.E.W. is best enjoyed straight up, on the rocks, or served long with soda and a wedge of lime.
