A rich, textured Irish Pot Still Whiskey with a palate of apple pie and lemon curd.

The Cooley Distillery is in County Louth on the east coast of Ireland at the border with Northern Ireland. It’s where they make Kilbeggan, Tryconnell, 2 Gingers, Connemara, and a few other Irish gems. Cooley has won more than three hundred awards since they consolidated operations there in 1985. Three hundred! That’s some pretty impressive Irish Whiskey work, don’t you think? They market all of their products under the master brand of Kilbeggan.

Kilbeggan Single Pot Still starts like a traditional Irish Whiskey, but with a twist. As you might expect, the mash bill contains roughly equal parts of malted and un-malted barley. But about 2.5% of the mash bill is oats to bring a smooth, creaminess to the Spirit. It has been double-distilled, aged for approximately eight years, and bottled at 43% ABV. All in all a perfectly delightful dram.

Smartass Corner:
The original Kilbeggan Distillery is now a working Whiskey museum with what is believed to be the world’s oldest still in operation. That still started operating in 1757 and there are license records to prove it.

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.
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!
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
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.
Kilbeggan Distillery is the oldest licensed Whiskey distillery in Ireland.
