The Rugged County Cork Coast in Ireland provides the perfect maturing conditions for our award winning Irish whiskey. Originally distilled in a traditional copper pot still, HYDE Irish Whiskey is double matured; firstly, in flame charred, first fill, oak bourbon casks, and then ‘finished’ in either a vintage Oloroso Sherry cask or dark Caribbean Rum cask.
HYDE is handcrafted in very small limited edition batches and non-chill filtered for a more original character. HYDE is a presidential quality whiskey, celebrating the inaugural appointment of Ireland’s very first president Douglas Hyde.
A 100% malted Irish barley whiskey from a single distillery – HYDE Pure Single Malt is a true taste of Ireland.
Douglas Hyde, Ireland’s first president was inaugurated on 25th June 1938. The ceremony, which took place at Dublin Castle, marked Ireland’s coming of age as an independent nation. Hyde served as president from 1938 to 1945. Hyde No. 1 ‘President’s Cask’ pays homage to a man, who through his political, cultural and academic life, helped to lay the foundations of modern Ireland.
The Hyde family have a long tradition of being involved in the Irish drinks business. From 1640 until 1962 the family ran a tavern located just outside the picturesque town of Bandon in West Cork. The Hydes sold traditional Irish Whiskey and draught stout straight from wooden casks, tapped by hand with a mallet and brass tap.
The drink business runs through twelve generations of the Hyde family tree. At one stage in 1916, their grandfather, granduncle and grandaunt were all publicans in Bandon. Today, Alan and Conor Hyde are the first generation not to own a tavern, but they continue the family tradition by producing some of Ireland’s finest whiskey.
