Peat is all about Islay? Drink again. Here’s a peated Irishman!
 
Connemara (named for the area in Ireland) is the name given to peated spirit made at Cooley Distillery in Dundalk. It is double-distilled in the Scottish style. As with Cooley's other Whiskeys, they are matured at the Locke's Distillery in Kilbeggan. Connemara is Ireland's only peated Whiskey currently on the market, although in centuries past smoky Irish Whiskeys would have been more common.
 
Smartass Corner:
Connemara is also famous for a beautiful green marble mined in the region, it is considered a national gem.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
