After the launch of The Devil’s Keep in November 2020, The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. debuted its second release, The Emerald Isle Collection in partnership with Fabergé today. The seven-piece custom-made whisky set celebrates the “Seven Wonders of Ireland”, set in a dark walnut box, and contains two bottles of ultra-rare, 30-year-old, triple distilled Irish whiskey – the oldest triple-distilled Irish whiskey in existence along with two exclusive creations from Fabergé- the first of its kind Celtic Egg and bespoke timepiece.
The 30-year old single malt Irish whisky has been aged in 200-litre “first fill” American oak casks, previously storing Bourbon, and then finished in a rare single 40-litre Pedro Ximénez sherry barrel. The profile ranges from fudge and maple syrup on the nose to sweet leather and a silky ripe banana on the palate, with a long finish with hints of meringue and rich vanilla cigar smoke.
Each collection also includes a humidor with two ultra-rare Cohiba Siglo VI Grans Reserve cigars, a gold-plated cigar cutter, gold plated water pipette, obsidian whisky stones, hip flask with a sample of the Emerald Isle Whisky, and a carafe of Irish Spring Water.
The inaugural launch of these limited-edition boxes will take place via a private auction in Houston, Texas on 2nd February 2021 at a world record starting price of 1.7m euros – with 100% of all proceeds, beyond cost price, going to charity- 50 percent of proceeds benefitting the Correa Family Foundation supporting children affected by serious illness, and the remaining 50 percent donated to the buyer’s charity of choice.
