Continuing the contemporary revival in the age-old tradition of Independent bonding, blending and
bottling, the team at Ireland Craft Beverages are releasing The Blenders Cut – Sauternes Cask
Strength and The Blenders Cut – Barbados Rum Cask Strength – this will be the final two bottlings in
their limited-edition Blenders Cut.
Bonded and bottled from Killowen Distillery, in the scenic area of the Mourne mountains, Co. Down,
Two Stacks are continuing to produce limited-edition premium whiskey that enthusiasts will want in
their drink’s cabinet.

When we started Two Stacks, our ambition was to build a whiskey brand recognized for the quality
liquid, transparency in each release, and contemporary eye-catching branding. The
release of the Blenders Cut speciality cask finish is a reflection of those ambitions. As important as
the quality of whiskey and branding, are the casks we selected for finishing. The history of the casks,
where they were made, where they were used and for how long they were used for

We are delighted to announce the release of the 2 remaining expressions in our Straight from The
Cask series. The 3 rd edition, a beautiful and delicate Sauternes cask finish accompanied be the 4 th and
final whiskey cask to be disgorged, A French oak barrel once playing host to a 5-year-old rum in
Barbados. The Blenders Cut spent 90 days soaking up all the flavors the Caribbean had to offer. Both
expressions have an abundance of flavour, and yet completely different to one another. The addition
of water to the Whiskey will bring some of those peat notes back to life too. Truly mouthwatering.
