More fire for more flavor.

In 1875, 5000 Whiskey barrels from Malone’s bonded warehouse in Dublin suddenly lit on fire. This was Dublin’s Great Whiskey Fire and it could have been a catastrophe if it wasn’t for the lone squeal of a ‘flaming pig’ that alarmed everybody and eventually saved the city from a disaster. Thank you, pig! Flaming Pig Irish Whiskey was founded by Joey and Flor over a century later to honor ‘The Pig That Saved Irish Whiskey’. These two drinks industry fellas wanted an uncomplicated Irish Whiskey but with more taste and character than your everyday dram. They believe good Whiskey is meant to be enjoyed not examined and we sure did. Enjoy their Whiskey, that is.

Flaming Pig Black Cask blends together Irish Single Malt and grain Whiskies. The 6-month aging process is something special, too: the Whiskey rests in char #5 barrels, mind you, the highest char is usually at #4. The intense barrel charring makes this Whiskey richer and spicier with an added layer of smokiness. Cut to proof with pure spring water, the result is a woody and caramelized Whiskey that’s reminiscent of Bourbon but still very much Irish.

Smartass Corner:
The distillery lads call the heavily blackened casks ‘flaming pigs’. Out of affection, of course.

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.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
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.
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!
