Gentle when sipped, fierce when sipped some more.

Remember 1849? Of course you don't, unless you're a vampire or Keith Richards. It's the year that the famous 69th Infantry Regiment was formed ― that's the one that leads the New York City's St. Patrick's Day Parade. The Irish Brigade has fought in the Civil War, both World Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan, becoming one of the most honored military units in the US. So, where does Whiskey enter the picture? This unique Irish-American dram comes from Ireland to pay its tributes to The Fighting 69th's Irish heritage.

The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is distilled in Ireland using quality (un)malted barley, corn, and pure Irish water. It's triple-distilled in a combination of handmade copper-pot stills and column stills and aged in single- and double-char ex-Bourbon casks, Port, and Oloroso Sherry casks. It's a complex blend of Whiskey aged between 4 and 6 years with a higher percentage of malted barley used, compared to your regular Irish Whiskey. Severely drinkable, this malty and smooth dram makes for the best kind of tribute.

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.
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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
