Hyde No.5 is a triple distilled, pure grain, Irish whiskey from one single distillery location. Originally distilled in a traditional “coffey” Copper Column still, from pure Corn (maize) grain. It is made in small batches, not blended in any way, and matured for over 6 years in flame-charred, first fill, ex-bourbon casks from Kentucky in the U.S.A. before being ‘finished’ for a further 6 months in vintage burgundy French red wine casks. This leads to a wonderfully rubyred colour in the Hyde No.5 Single Grain. HYDE Whiskey’s Burgundy red wine casks come from the Burgundy region of France from the Côte d’Or vineyards near Dijon, France. Burgundy red wine is made from Pinot noir grapes which ferment the whole grape that is crushed before fermentation.
