A unique IPA cask finish everyone should try.

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 scientists. So, these guys know a thing about hard work and profound knowledge. Their love for Irish heritage, tradition – and, of course, booze, was is the cornerstone for their venture. And the fact, that the microclimate of West Cork is perfect for maturing Irish Whiskey, is obviously a cool advantage.

West Cork Blended Irish Whiskey IPA Cask Finish is what happens when you blend 75% of grain Whiskey and 25% of malt Whiskey, age it in first-fill Bourbon casks and then finish it in casks that used to hold Black’s of Kinsale IPA. Not sure what to imagine? Try picturing an Irish Whiskey that’s mildly hoppy but it also has sweet undertones and finishes off with roasted nuts, sweet spices, and malt notes. Don’t just take our word for it, though, taste it for yourself.

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.
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.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
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.
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!
