What is Chill Filtered Irish Whiskey?

April 8, 2023

You might have seen the phrase “non-chill filtered” on your bottle of Irish whiskey, leading you to wonder what chill filtering is in the first place?

It’s a question that often comes up and no better man to answer the question of what chill filtering is than Midleton Distillery Blender Dave McCabe.

In this video, Dave shares what the term means, how it is undertaken at Midleton Distillery, what its effects are and which whiskeys you might think are chill filtered that aren’t! Another masterclass of explanation from Dave.

This clip was taken from our recent Knappogue Castle Tasting Event that Dave kindly hosted for our Whiskey Club. To watch the full tasting event and see his reaction to his first ever tasting of Knappogue Castle 1951, click here.
