Fancy some Irish Whiskey? Then give The Quiet Man a try at the Whisky & Spirits Live Festival on from 31 October - 2 November at the Sandton Convention Centre.
The Tale of The Quiet Man
The Quiet Man craft Distillery based in the city of Derry in the North of Ireland is bringing Irish Whiskey distillation back to a city once renowned for high quality whiskey production. The brainchild of Ciaran Mulgrew who named both the distillery and brand after his late father John, the company currently offers a range of high quality award winning whiskies from its cask inventory.
Using only the finest ex bourbon casks for maturation, The Quiet Man range is bottled on site and is now exported to over 28 countries around the world. Introduced to South Africa one year ago through local company Ultra Liquor the premium blend and 8 year old single malt were quickly followed by the 12 year old that was recently awarded an unprecedented 93/100 in Jim Murray's influential whiskey bible.
The Quiet Man premium blend is the flagship of the company and was awarded a gold medal at tis years IWSC in London – smooth and full of fruit and flavour The Quiet Man style is evident in this expression. The single malts range from the 8 year old that is known for its spice note through to the 12 year old that is both elegant yet intense.
At this year’s show, for the first time the 12 year old single malt finished in 30 year old Oloroso sherry casks will make its debut on the continent. John Mulgrew, The Quiet Man himself was a great listener and told no tales in a lifetime working in the bar trade in his native Belfast – hear his story and taste the whiskies made to honor his memory at Whisky & Spirits Live!
