“Tullamore D.E.W. XO Rum Cask Finish is a celebration of both Irish and Caribbean spirit-making traditions,” comments Michael Mooney, National Brand Manager, Tullamore D.E.W.
“We take our legendary triple distilled, triple blended and triple matured Irish whiskey and finish it in first fill XO demerara rum casks from the Caribbean to give it a sweet tropical flavour. Tully XO won a Gold medal at the International Spirits Competition last year and we are thrilled to expand this exciting new innovation across Canada just in time for summer!”
Shining like a vacation sunset with a golden amber glow, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish boasts aromas of vanilla and oak overlaid with citrus, ripe bananas and delicate spice. Each sip brings Canadians on a flavour journey of Irish heart with Caribbean soul.
With an incredibly smooth and rich flavor, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish adds deliciously deep flavours of caramel and banana, in addition to notes of dates and raisins. The finish is long and sweet, with bananas and caramel that linger like a sun-kissed summer glow. The eye-catching packaging is inspired by vintage Caribbean trade maps, passport stamps and travel journals.
With its rich celebration of both the Irish and Caribbean spirit-making traditions, Tullamore D.E.W XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish fits right in with Tullamore D.E.W’s growing O’Everyone family.
Earlier this year, Tullamore D.E.W. in Canada launched O’Everyone, the first-ever, year-long, nationwide, benevolence campaign that invites Canadians to unlock the power of their O’Lastnames in support of diversity initiatives led by the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI). Canadians coast to coast participate by purchasing a customized t-shirt and bottle label for $20.00 at www.oeveryone.ca with 100% of proceeds from merchandise sales going directly to the CCDI. Sales are tracked via the live-ticker on the website and the grand total will be donated to the CCDI in December 2021. Tullamore D.E.W. has raised almost $40,000 for the CCDI to date.
A perfect spirit to toast the start of Canada’s favourite season, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish is available for purchase at select retailers across Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba. Enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in place of rum in a classic cocktail, Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask brings the warmth and spice of the Caribbean to Canada in a beautiful bottle that is sure to bring vacation vibes.
“We are delighted to welcome Tullamore D.E.W. XO Rum Cask Finish to the O’Everyone family,” adds Mooney.
