At only 227 square miles, much of it desolate, the Isle of Man does not offer a lot of room for spirits manufacturing. There is, however, an interesting enterprise there and here’s what some of the literature says about the manufacture of ManX Manx Spirit:
“Brandies and cognacs are distilled from grapes; rum comes from cane sugar; calvados starts life as an apple. ManX is distilled from the finest single malt whisky@123 which has been matured in oak casks by our Celtic neighbours, but this is followed by a purification process prior to bottling.”
Essentially ManX Spirit is single malt whisky@123 that has undergone a “redistillation technique” that creates a crystal clear spirit while retaining the complex tastes of the original malt.
