Tullamore Dew Honey /35%/ –
The original Tullamore Distillery closed in the early 1950s but the brand survived and even flourished, especially in central and eastern Europe. William Grant & Sons purchased the brand in the spring of 2010 and four years later newly built Tullamore D.E.W. Distillery started operation. The distillery produces 3.6 million liters of malt and pot still spirit and 8 million liters of grain spirit (all triple-distilled). Tullamore Dew Honey was introduced in 2021 in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Germany. It is made of standard Tullamore Dew whiskey (blend of malt, pot still and grain whiskeys) and 100% natural Bohemian honey then bottled at 35% abv.
