This Irish 12YO proves that beggars can be choosers.

The Ryan family has been in the Whiskey business for 6 generations — from owning public houses to farming the barley and distilling the Spirits. Eunan Ryan started working in the family pubs at the age of thirteen — obviously, this was before the advent of pesky child labor laws. But today he runs the family Whiskey businesses, along with his Jack Ryan Whiskey Company in Dublin. They've already struck gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and considering the tough competition they were up against, that's a mighty-fine accomplishment indeed!

This 12-year-old bottle we have here is a Beggar's Bush Cask Strength Single Malt. It's a limited edition 92-proof Irish Whiskey beauty that has spent the entirety of its dozen years in ex-bourbon casks. Beggars Bush is the still-operational family-run pub that Eunan's grandfather used to run during the time when Irish Whiskey was in decline and you can see both the establishment and the man himself on the label. It's fruity, sweet, spicy, and oh-so-easily imbibed.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
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.
Irish Whiskey has many 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.
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.
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.
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!
