                    [Notes4] =>  They say that winter spread from her icy staff, drawing a white veil over the raw and sacred ground. Brutal fury and relentless force have conspired with an ancient art to conjure this spirit from the land. In the eye of the tempest, at the edge of the old world, Kalak Vodka is carefully crafted.
Home grown malted barley, pure, cold mountain water, and the patience of stone have come together in this bold spirit named for the Celtic queen of Winter, Kalak, (“An Cailleach”)
Kalak is a phonetic spelling of  “Cailleach”, the Irish Celtic Goddess. Kalak was the closest thing the Celts had to mother nature. She was the embodiment of the darker, more powerful side of nature, and the side we’ve harnessed to make our product.
Kalak is also associated with stone. She was transformed into one at the end of her reign which can still be found on the Beara Peninsula. In fact, many prominent mountain, coastal and rock formations have been named for her (e.g. The Hag’s Head or Sliabh na Cailleach).
Our label is designed to be reminiscent of an ogham (pronounced ‘owm’) stone. Cut into the sides of our label is “Cailleach” written in that ancient script of ogham.
Although Kalak is a protectorate of all animals, the wild Irish deer were her army and a symbol of her power. The antler can therefore be found tied to the top of her staff and on the neck label of our bottle.

                    [Notes5] =>  100% Irish Malted Barley  & Pure Mountain Water
 Four Times Pot  Distilled in West Cork
The south coast of Ireland bares the brunt of relentless  Atlantic storms. It also enjoys the  clemency of a temperate, soft climate with spells of wind swept sunshine. Perfect  for growing crops, like our barley.
Some of the cleanest clouds in the world, having crossed  thousands of miles of open ocean, rain on our rough and remote countryside. And what doesn’t water our barley, then spends hundreds of years being purified deep underground in  porous rock. This is the other ingredient 
Then nature meets nurture. We come from a people who worshiped nature, a country that was ruled by the laws of nature. The love of nature and the ability to harness it was given to no people so early or so fully as the Irish Celt. Our distillers are part of a heritage that’s the oldest the world. It has been said that we invented the craft of distilling drinks during the early Christian period and yet, we’ve never applied this expertise to craft vodka, until now.
Kalak is a vodka unlike any other, one with a new level of purity and depth that’s there from the start. Vodka with the cobwebs blown off.
On the nose, notes of freshly baked croissant, vanilla and fruity freshness are followed on the palate by a deliciously elegant texture with hints of biscuit, dark chocolate, cream and candied fruit, finishing with a soft and glowing lingering complexity.

                    [Notes4] =>  They say that winter spread from her icy staff, drawing a white veil over the raw and sacred ground. Brutal fury and relentless force have conspired with an ancient art to conjure this spirit from the land. In the eye of the tempest, at the edge of the old world, Kalak Vodka is carefully crafted.
Home grown malted barley, pure, cold mountain water, and the patience of stone have come together in this bold spirit named for the Celtic queen of Winter, Kalak, (“An Cailleach”)
Kalak is a phonetic spelling of  “Cailleach”, the Irish Celtic Goddess. Kalak was the closest thing the Celts had to mother nature. She was the embodiment of the darker, more powerful side of nature, and the side we’ve harnessed to make our product.
Kalak is also associated with stone. She was transformed into one at the end of her reign which can still be found on the Beara Peninsula. In fact, many prominent mountain, coastal and rock formations have been named for her (e.g. The Hag’s Head or Sliabh na Cailleach).
Our label is designed to be reminiscent of an ogham (pronounced ‘owm’) stone. Cut into the sides of our label is “Cailleach” written in that ancient script of ogham.
Although Kalak is a protectorate of all animals, the wild Irish deer were her army and a symbol of her power. The antler can therefore be found tied to the top of her staff and on the neck label of our bottle.

                    [Notes5] =>  100% Irish Malted Barley  & Pure Mountain Water
 Four Times Pot  Distilled in West Cork
The south coast of Ireland bares the brunt of relentless  Atlantic storms. It also enjoys the  clemency of a temperate, soft climate with spells of wind swept sunshine. Perfect  for growing crops, like our barley.
Some of the cleanest clouds in the world, having crossed  thousands of miles of open ocean, rain on our rough and remote countryside. And what doesn’t water our barley, then spends hundreds of years being purified deep underground in  porous rock. This is the other ingredient 
Then nature meets nurture. We come from a people who worshiped nature, a country that was ruled by the laws of nature. The love of nature and the ability to harness it was given to no people so early or so fully as the Irish Celt. Our distillers are part of a heritage that’s the oldest the world. It has been said that we invented the craft of distilling drinks during the early Christian period and yet, we’ve never applied this expertise to craft vodka, until now.
Kalak is a vodka unlike any other, one with a new level of purity and depth that’s there from the start. Vodka with the cobwebs blown off.
On the nose, notes of freshly baked croissant, vanilla and fruity freshness are followed on the palate by a deliciously elegant texture with hints of biscuit, dark chocolate, cream and candied fruit, finishing with a soft and glowing lingering complexity.

About this product +

Producer >

Origin Spirits Ireland Ltd, creators of Kalak Single Malt Vodka, Ornabrak Single Malt Gin and Currach Single Malt Irish Whiskey are pioneers in avant-garde single malt spirits. Each product celebrates the best of Ireland’s terroir, tradition of distillation and spirit of creativity – This DNA transverses the portfolio. Each product is unique yet shares the same ‘Single Malt’ backbone. Each transports one on a sensory voyage to the heart of the Irish terroir.

Viticulture >

Our malting barley is non-GMO and sourced from contracted growers, principally in the South East of Ireland. It is subsequently ‘malted’ in Cork, a process which involves steeping, germinating and kilning to release the enzymes while preserving the natural goodness and flavours of the grain. Once malted, our barley is milled, mashed, fermented and four times copper pot distilled in West Cork. The spirit is then cut to 40% alcohol with pure mountain water and slow filtered before resting and bottling. The term ‘Single Malt’ refers to a spirit distilled in a single distillery using a pot still distillation process and made from a mash of malted barley. Kalak Single Malt Vodka is one of a small number of vodka’s internationally which is distilled from malted barley. Our farm to bottle approach is a tribute to Ireland’s terroir and distillation heritage.

Winemaking >

Distilled four times in a copper pot still, using Irish malted barley and pure mountain water, this single malt vodka is then finished in American virgin oak casks, charred over an Irish peat fire.
