Description

This old bottle of Hewitts dates from before the formation of Irish Distillers in 1966 and is described as ‘A blend of old malt and light whiskies of smooth and distinctive character’. The brand was revived in 1960 by Cork Distilleries Co to compete against blended Scotch whiskies- note the spelling here excludes the E in whiskey which was common for Cork whiskeys at the time. Rumour has it that these whiskeys contained some peated malt giving them a slightly smoky flavour. Bottle is in good condition.
