Dunvilles VR Single Malt 10 year old Irish Whiskey

County Down, Northern Ireland

Notes:

After the success of the very modern Feckin' Irish Whiskey brand, Northern Irishman Shane Braniff of Echlinville Distillery was inspired to draw on a little heritage, so he bought the rights to the famous old Dunville's brand.

There are over 100 years of, sometimes turbulent, history in the family owned distillery (and tea importer). The VR 10-year-old has been their most popular whiskey, launched in 1837 and named after Queen Victoria, when she ascended the throne. Unfortunately, Dunville & Co. was liquidated in 1936 due, in part, to family tragedies and Prohibition in the USA.

The 10-year-old is a very intriguing release, with plenty of orchard fruit, custard and old fashioned sweetie notes. It was crowned Best Irish Single Malt Under 12 Years at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards and was honoured with this accolade again in the 2016 Awards.


WORLD WHISKY AWARDS 2015 and 2016 - Winner of the Best Irish Single Malt in category '12 Years and Under'


With a complexity seldom found in such a delicate Single Malt, this expression is worthy of its Royal Ancestral past, this legendary whiskey will once again take its rightful place amongst the premier whiskeys of the world. - 2015


The nose is sweet and varied with cake spices, dried apple, poached clementines, vanilla and gentle, toasted oak. The palate is thick and spicy with sandalwood, musky spice, nutmeg and all-spice, vanilla and some citrus pith. Juicy and pleasant on the finish with some lingering wood. - 2016

Details

Dunville

Established in Belfast in 1801, Dunville launched its best-known pot-still whiskey brand in 1837 – the premium VR, named for Queen Victoria. The company went on to build Belfast’s largest production facility, the Royal Irish Distilleries, in 1869. The head office was in Arthur Street, Belfast, where Café Vaudeville now stands. The company continued to grow and its whiskey was shipped worldwide.

Dunville itself eventually closed its doors in 1935. In the early seventies the company (Dunville and Co. LTD) and the trade mark “Dunville” where registered/revived by the Russell family from Belfast who once again traded the iconic brand, sadly thought, due to inconsistencies in a regular supply of Irish whiskey from other distilleries the brand never really appeared on a permanent basis.

The Echlinville distillery was granted a licence to distil for Dunville and is now proud to produce a premium whiskey for this truly Northern Irish label and to give it the provenance that it deserves in our history of whiskey making.
