Type: Irish Whiskey
It all started in 1776, when the McConnell family of Belfast began selling their whisky to the public.
It quickly became one of the most sought-after spirits in Ireland, and to keep up with demand, the McConnells built a distillery: a sprawling, buzzing compound on the banks of the River Lagan.
The next 154 years would be spent dedicated to a single pursuit: producing the finest whisky in all of Ireland.
Many whisky drinkers believed that they achieved their goal, making McConnell’s the most famous Irish whisky of the time. But what about that “e “? Back in the 1900’s, adding the “e” was a way for Irelands distillers to differentiate themselves however McConnell’s, already an iconic brand with 125 years of production, decided to keep with tradition – no “e” in whisky, Slainte!WEBSITE
