J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey, Ireland’s first modern whiskey bonder, proudly announces the exclusive launch of two award winning limited-release Bonder’s Editions at The Loop Duty Free, Cork and Dublin Airport. This milestone is marked by a collaborative effort with ARI’s ‘The Irish Whiskey Collection’ to celebrate the brand’s debut in both Cork Airport Duty Free and Dublin Airport Duty Free.

The first of these exclusive releases is a 13-year-old Single Cask Single Grain Irish Whiskey, personally selected for ‘The Irish Whiskey Collection’ by J.J. Corry founder, Louise McGuane. Awarded Silver at the World Whiskies Awards 2024, this Single Cask release spent 13 years maturing in first and second-fill bourbon barrels, resulting in a whiskey with vibrant notes of fresh pear, toffee, and vanilla pods. Bottled at a robust 52.5% with no chill filtration, this Bonder’s Edition is an ultra-limited offering, comprising only 246 bottles.

Complementing this exceptional release is the second Bonder’s Edition, a Single Grain Irish Whiskey meticulously crafted from a complex vatting of eight casks aged between 6 to 13 years. Bottled at 46% ABV and non-chill filtered, this limited edition comprised of 2400 bottles is a symphony of tropical fruit, crème brûlée, and chocolate notes. Awarded Best Irish Grain Whiskey at the World Whiskies Awards 2024, ‘The Irish Whiskey Collection’ Single Grain Bonder’s Edition is a testament to J.J. Corry’s unrivalled reputation as Ireland’s first modern Whiskey Bonder and its mission to develop an unparalleled library of Irish Whiskey flavours allowing them to blend outstanding expressions. Whiskey enthusiasts can exclusively acquire these world exclusive editions through The Irish Whiskey Collection at The Loop Duty Free at Cork and Dublin Airport and online via www.theloop.ie.
