Character Goatson
A pure-bred Irish in a Highlander’s kilt.

The Knappogue Castle is indeed a real castle built by the Irish clan MacNamara in the 15th century to stop the invading Normans. It was left in ruins until 1966, when Mr. Andrews, an American with Irish blood purchased it and began restoring this landmark of Irish culture. Mr. Andrews also happened to be a true Irish Whiskey devotee and started stocking-up his cellars with all kinds of different Pot Stills he could get his hands on. He waited for the Whiskeys to reach the pinnacle of maturation and then bottled it under the name of his hallowed Knappogue.

But the real legend was born when his son, Mark, decided to put his father’s legacy and passion on the market. It all started with the Knappogue Vintage 1951, which has become one of the most appraised Whiskeys in the World, giving the brand global recognition. Today the legend continues and the cellars of the castles are serving its purpose just as Mr. Andrews had imagined.
 
A limited edition Irish Whiskey, this liquid has spent 14 years in Bourbon casks and the rest of its time in a Sherry butt. No peat here as the silky smooth tripple distilled Irish Whiskey amuses the tastebuds as much as stimulating them. The duality of the two wood maturation evident in polarising taste evolution as you quaff this Whiskey. Mellow tones indicative of a smooth and long Whiskey. Enjoy and raise a glass to some complex Irish liquid!

In 2008, the bank of Ireland issued a new series of Sterling banknotes with the Old Bushmills Distillery illustration on one side.
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.
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!
