A fine Irish Spirit that wins you over with its delicate and subtly sweet balance.

John and James McConnell built the business in Belfast in 1776. That was such a long time ago, Irish Whisky didn’t even have an “E” in it yet! Anyway, McConnel’s Irish Whiskey was a very successful brand for over 150 years until a bunch of unfortunate events, including the American Prohibition and a warehouse fire in Belfast, temporarily put a halt to their ways. Today, the team at Belfast Distillery Company is restoring the legend (Still without that “E”, though, to honor the good ol’ days.) You could say they’re back in Spirits…

McConnell's Irish Whisky is a fine blend of Irish malt and grain Whiskies that have been aged for 5 years in hand-picked Bourbon casks. This Irish excellence in a bottle is the perfect blend of malted barley and grain. It’s delicate and subtly sweet with deep, oaky, and woody flavors that finish in light char, spice, and lingering ripe fruits.

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