The Chosen is a 27yo single cask, single malt whiskey, promising a nose of toffee, rancio, dried mango and chestnut.
The release, limited to 100 bottles, sees a packaging collaboration with contemporary Irish design houses J Hill's Standard and John Galvin Design. J Hill's Standard is responsible for the crystal decanters, while the ash wood cabinets were fashioned by John Galvin Design.
Louise McGuane, founder of JJ Corry, said: ‘Irish whiskey has not been celebrated for its quality and rarity, as perhaps other categories have. We have some of the finest mature stock of whiskey in the world and yet I feel the industry undersells itself. I wanted to change that. Our approach to making Irish whiskey celebrates tradition, embraces change and has the modern whiskey drinker front of mind. All of this is reflected in The Chosen.’
JJ Corry was founded in 2015 by McGuane - the former global head of Diageo's World Class bartender competition. The company describes itself as ‘Ireland's first modern whiskey bonder’.
