The Pearse Whiskey Collection   

The Original

The Original has a light, smooth and easy taste with a hint of spearmint that warms to hints of semi-sweet chocolate, light oak wood, creamy vanilla and light caramel. It has a mild malt character, is well balanced and finishes with a crisp smooth spice.

Distiller’s Choice

Our Distiller’s Choice has a smooth, warm, light oak flavour with hints of green grape evolving to caramelised pear. As Pearse Distiller’s Choice develops you will savour a hint of cocoa and dried fruits while finishing with notes of stewed apple, clove and custard.

Founder’s Choice

If a 12 year old single malt is more your style, our Founder’s Choice has hints of lemon, dried orange and a touch of honeysuckle which finishes deliciously smooth and leaves you with warm notes of ginger and clove.

Cooper’s Select

Our seven-year-old masterpiece is our limited edition Cooper’s Select that was first aged in bourbon barrels and then re-casked into first fill sherry casks. This has a big wood and sherry influence and is perfect for a Christmas tipple.
