NEW YORK, Dec. 21, 2017 — Castle Brands Inc. (NYSE American: ROX), a developer and international marketer of premium and super-premium drinks brands, today announced that its Knappogue Castle Single Malt Irish Whiskey has launched a special barrel release of its 12-year-old single malt Irish whiskey. Bottled at 92 proof, the rare expression comes with a personalized gifting option in time for the festive season. For $65, those wishing to send a unique gift can provide a specific name and message to be calligraphed onto the bottle and delivered to their chosen recipient.

Produced from a handpicked number of barrels containing Knappogue Castle 12 Year, this special release is non-chill filtered and triple distilled in copper pot stills. Differing from the original 12-Year edition, which is bottled at 80 proof, the special release is aged in first-fill bourbon barrels for stronger oak influence. The resulting whiskey boasts a rich, biscuity, and slightly peppery aroma, followed by an elegant fruitiness and mild spice flavors on the palate.

Offered for a limited time with only a small production run, this special batch is available for purchase with custom engraved labels at online retailer Reserve Bar. For more information, please visit
