An airport exclusive Irish Single Malt brought to you by FlaviAIR Spiritual Airlines.

Walsh Whiskey set out to rediscover real Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago. When Walsh Whiskey first started in 1999, they contracted their distilling to Bushmills. But their success has allowed them to build out their own distillery in Carlow — in the heart of Ireland’s southern farm country — where they make eight versions of The Irishman Whiskies, six Writers' Tears blends, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur. 

The Irishman Marsala Cask Finished Single Malt continues the majestic flight of acclaimed Marsala Cask Finish expressions with this unique blend of aged Single Malt and aged Single Pot Still Whiskey. Triple-distilled, as all Irish Whiskey should be, aged and matured in American oak Bourbon casks and Sherry Oloroso butts, this Irishman spent an additional 15 months inside Marsala hogshead casks. That's Italian fortified Wine from Florio Winery in Sicily, for all you Spirit Smartasses. The Whiskey is a non-chill filtered, non-age statement Malt bottled at 46% ABV (92 Proof).

This is a limited-edition Aer Rianta International exclusive, which means it was initially intended for Dublin and Cork Airports. Just call us FlaviAIR, cuz we have some serious international connections.

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 Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
It is said that when Irish writers suffered from ‘Writer's Block’ and that when they cried they cried tears of Whiskey. Most, if not all of them, sought comfort and inspiration from “The Water of Life” (Whiskey). The relaxing characteristics of Whiskey helped many of them overcome writer’s block and produce inspired works of poetry, prose and plays. Writer’s Tears, is a salute to these great Irish writers.
