Walsh Whiskey

Walsh Whiskeys marks the return of Whiskey distilling to County Carlow, for the first time in over 200 years. They are also the only independent Irish Whiskey distillery to produce the three styles of Irish Whiskey- pot still, malt, and grain under one roof, in one still room.

With columns for grain Whiskey, and pots stills for malt, Walsh Whiskey has the capacity to produce 650,000 cases of Whiskey per annum.

The picturesque distillery is also designed to hospitably caters to visitors, with its three specially crafted imported copper pots stills, built in the legendary Scottish Forsyths -the world’s most prestigious supplier of distillation equipment- and two, forty plate column stills.

A slight break from the traditional ex-Bourbon and Sherry, Walsh Distillery ages their Whiskeys in quality casks from around the world: Bourbon barrels from Kentucky, Sherry Butts from Jerez, Rum casks from St. Lucia and Marsala wine casks which they are receiving from their partners Illva Saronno in Sicily.

Walsh Whiskey’s heart and soul are the very popular Writers Tears and Irishman Whiskey. Their goal is to expand the already existing line-up of these Whiskeys. Their growing production line up is a robust offering of various expression of these brands, with 8 Whiskey (5 Irishman, 3 Writer’s Tears) offerings.

Their hybrid, single malt/pot still Irishman Founders Reserve, is highly acclaimed by Jim Murray who gave it 93 points, calling it “quite a wonderful blend.” Their distinctly floral, highly acclaimed Copper Pot Writer’s Tears, is also one of the highest rated Irish Whiskey’s in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and one of the all-time favorites of the Flaviar community. Walsh rounds out their production range with a Irish coffee and Irish cream.
