Craoi na Mona
(Finished in Scotland), Ireland
Craoi na Mona (pronounced "cree na mona") is part of the growing spirits portfolio of the UK-based merchant, Berry Bros. & Rudd. Translating to "heart of the peat bog" in Gaelic, this single malt whiskey was distilled in Ireland and matured for 10 in American oak casks before it was sent to Scotland to finish for several months in casks used to age heavily peated Islay malt. Non-chillfiltered without added color, it's bottled at 46% ABV.
