Two Stacks Irish Whiskey Unveils Pillars of Creation

Two Stacks Irish Whiskey proudly introduces "Pillars of Creation," a landmark annual release celebrating Ireland’s distilling evolution.

This blend of pot still and malt whiskeys signifies a historic collaboration, harmonizing the distinctive character of three esteemed single casks from the new generation of Irish distilleries, Dingle Distillery, Echlinville Distillery, and Killowen Distillery.

Killowen Cask #004 (Filled 2019, refill quarter cask Ex-Bourbon), Echlinville Cask #450 (Filled 2016, First fill Ex-Bourbon), and Dingle Cask 261 (filled 2013, First Fill Ex-Bourbon), were selected in 2021 and then married over a 2 and a half year period in a Cream Sherry Butt from the Ex-Jerez region.

Shane McCarthy, Two Stacks co-founder shared:

"The main purpose of this release was never about maintaining the status quo; it was about starting a new chapter to script where Irish Whiskey can go... old meets new, tradition meeting innovation.
This collaboration has allowed each regional distillery to showcase a sense of place and cultural identity through their whiskey DNA, entrusting Two Stacks to become a custodian
of their whiskey and showcase it through the art of the blend, creating a whiskey like no other, one that is truly unique and will never be repeated.”

"Pillars of Creation" is available in both 700ml bottles and Two Stacks' signature Dram In A Can, with limited quantities of 300 bottles and 500 cans available from midday on April 26th on

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: We begin proceedings with that quintessential Dingle Whiskey note with a difference, as if folded in two, unveiling marzipan, orange peel, and a dusting of fresh wood shavings. The richness of the sherry takes the reins with an offering of dark fruit, new leather, and liquorice.

Taste:  Take your time. The complexity is matched only by its viscosity. The oils quickly coat your mouth offering up layers of flavour. The cream sherry cask dances harmoniously with the 3 very distinct distillates, binding to, but not restricting each component to the sum of its parts. The pot still sings, the malt providing the base. Greeted with green apple, blackberry, and peppery spice, more of the deep rich element found in whiskey from a bygone era. Never escaping that charred meaty note we all have come to love from Killowen whiskey, pleasantly rising to the top!

Finish: The final leg of the journey is not without wonder, with a long finish from the pot still spice, the sherry sweetness providing the perfect backdrop.
