The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a new and unexpected single malt for every man – rich in hue, approachable in taste and deep and memorable in character. The Sexton is made from 100% Irish malted barley, triple distilled for smoothness in copper pot stills and consciously aged in Oloroso Sherry butts.
From the iconic to the eccentric, Midleton Single Pot Stills, including Powers Whiskey, Redbreast and Green Spot, are amongst the most diverse, prestigious and award-winning whiskeys in the world. From raisins to menthol to cedarwood and pear, their featured Single Pot Still whiskies have a variety of tastes to offer all whiskey fans. Not only do they triple distill their whiskey, they cut more from the top and tail, taking only the heart of the distillate.
Teeling Whiskey Small Batch – Our Flagship Irish whiskey and our attempt to create the most interesting Blended Irish whiskey. This small batch bottling consists of hand selected casks which are given further maturation in ex-rum barrels imparting extra character and smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% with no chill filtration completes an Irish whiskey of true character.
Teeling Whiskey Single Grain – This award-winning whiskey has won best in class annually at the World Whiskies Awards since its release, and is one of only a handful of Single Grain bottlings in the world. It is fully matured in Californian red wine barrels resulting in an intensely fruity and beautifully amber liquid, with lush berry notes. Hand selected casks, bottled at 46% with no chill filtration to ensure all the unique flavour is captured.
Teeling Whiskey Single Malt – Made from 100% Malted Barley from a range of different ages including Malt whiskey distilled in 1991. Our aim was to produce the most flavoursome non-age statement Irish Single Malt through innovative maturation and finishing techniques while retaining the distinctive Irish smoothness. Consists of a vatting of 5 different wine cask (Sherry, Port, Madeira, White Burgundy, Cabernet Sauvignon) finished Irish Malt whiskeys. Bottled at 46% with no chill filtration allowing the natural flavours of the whiskey to be retained.
In 1966, Mark Edwin Andrews and his wife purchased a 15th-century castle in Ireland, restored it from ruins, and began (brilliantly) buying casks of fine pot still whiskeys from top distilleries. (We love this guy.) He then further aged and bottled them under what is now the Knappogue Castle label. (Difficult to pronounce, easy to drink.)
Knappogue Castle 1951 (distilled in 1951 and aged for 36 years) is revered by connoisseurs as the oldest and rarest commercially available Irish whiskey on the market. Knappogue Castle’s line of whiskeys also consists of multi-award-winning 12, 14, 16, and limited-edition 21-year-old single malts, with an impressive depth of complexity achieved by varying degrees of maturation in bourbon and sherry casks. Given the years it took to make these extraordinary whiskeys, we suggest you set aside plenty of time to enjoy them.
Holding belts in two weight divisions simultaneously, infamous MMA fighter Conor McGregor had already demonstrated his impressive discipline and multi-tasking abilities. But to take it a step further, McGregor launched a blended Irish whiskey, Proper No.12 (named after the postal district in which he grew up), with former Bushmills distillery manager David Elder. (Something tells us that when Mr. McGregor sets his mind to something, you politely get out of his way.)
McGregor searched for a place that shared his passion for Ireland and its whiskey and found it in the old Bushmills distillery in Ulster, Northern Ireland. With his master distiller, he created a smooth, balanced whiskey with hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness and toasted wood. We suggest you join us in a proper tasting of Proper No.12. (Good thing we don’t have to fight him to get some!)
Built on a loyal following of “those in the know,” Redbreast is the largest-selling single-pot still Irish whiskey in the world. (As far as we’re concerned, it’s never too late to be in the know.) Treasured for its complex pot still character and Oloroso sherry maturation, Redbreast is the living definition of the Pot Still Irish Whiskey tradition.
Redbreast was originally produced by Gilbey’s, a Dublin spirits merchant using distillate from Jameson’s Bow Street Distillery. Long after the demise of the whiskey bonder era, it has continued to live on as the archetypal whiskey of that time. In fact, in his 2018 Whisky Bible, Jim Murray observed that Redbreast 21 Year Old was “amongst the world’s truly great whiskies and near blueprint for the perfect pot still Irish whiskey.” (Let’s all raise a glass to perfection.)
The Dubliner Irish Whiskey is a blend of single malt and grain whiskies that have been aged in fine Kentucky bourbon oak casks and crafted by Master Blender John Drennan. Sipping it brings an undeniable warmth and a smooth, lingering finish. Look for a mellow, honey sweetness with just a bit of peppery spice. Dubliner is also known for their Dubliner Irish Whiskey Liqueur that combines whiskey, caramel, and honeycomb.
This distinctive whiskey’s name is inspired by James Joyce, the Irish author who penned “Dubliners,” a series of short stories based in that famous city. Unlike Mr. Joyce (who also wrote Ulysses, which we admit we could never get through in college), we’ll keep this short: We suggest you give The Dubliner a try.
Hearkening back to the 19th century (even their restored distillery is 200 years old), Bernard and Rosemary Walsh’s hands-on passion and dedication to the revival of crafting Irish whiskey has resulted in their highly awarded and superb range of triple-distilled whiskeys. (We’d like to point out here that one does not have to be Irish, or a man, to enjoy Irishman whiskey.)
The Irishman, the company’s original signature whiskey, is a premium blend of two styles: single malt (70 percent) and single-pot still (30 percent). Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible lists it among its highest-rated Irish whiskeys with 93 points. The Irishman was also named overall winner in the Irish Whiskey Category at the Whiskey Masters. Sipping any one of the seven Irishman whiskeys, you’d swear that Ireland’s golden era of whiskey distilling is happening now, thanks to the Walshes and their extraordinary attention to detail.
Another bold move by the Walsh family (makers of The Irishman), Writers’ Tears moves outside the traditional Irish whiskey category to something a little more nuanced and exciting. Distilled entirely from aged single-pot still and single malt without grain, this is a truly special Irish whiskey. Writers’ Tears is triple-distilled, non-peated, and matured and aged in American oak bourbon casks. (We’re tearing up just thinking about it.)
A Gold Medal winner at the International Spirits Challenge in London and one of the highest-rated Irish whiskeys in Jim Murray’s iconic Whisky Bible, Writers’ Tears has also been added to Ian Buxton’s publication 101 Whiskeys to Try Before You Die. Incidentally, the name has something to do with 19th-century Irish writers drinking whiskey to alleviate writer’s block. (We’re happy to report that it works just as well with 21st-century writers.)
