A very well-balanced Whiskey blend from the Emerald Isle.

In the rugged and picturesque peninsulas of West Cork in southern Ireland, a terrific trio of best friends set up an artisanal distillery in 2003 and gave it a no-B.S. name: West Cork Distillers. Two of them used to be deep sea fishermen, and one used to work for a beverage firm as a scientist. So, these guys know a thing about hard work and profound knowledge. Their love for Irish heritage, tradition – and, of course, booze, was the cornerstone for their venture. The fact that the microclimate of West Cork is perfect for maturing Irish Whiskey, is obviously a cool advantage, too.

West Cork Black Cask Blended Irish Whiskey is their beautifully balanced Whiskey blend. Crafted from 66% grain and 34% malt Whiskeys, it was matured in first-fill Bourbon casks for 3 years before it received its final – and might we add clever – touch in heavily charred Bourbon casks for 1 year. The final flavors are a pleasant combination of malt notes, vanilla, and lingering sweetness that have garnered many-an award over the years. You can easily sip on this well-balanced blend neat, pour it over ice, or mix it into a high-end cocktail.

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.
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.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
