A delicate combination of perfectly crafted Irish Whiskeys and expert, double-wood aging.

Walsh Whiskey set out to rediscover real Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago. When Welsh Whiskey first started in 1999, they contracted their distilling to Bushmills. But their success has allowed them to build out their own distillery in Carlow — in the heart of Ireland’s southern farm country — where they make eight versions of The Irishman Whiskies, six Writer’s Tears blends, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur.

For Writers' Tears Double Oak, the Walsh Whiskey Distillery took two Irish Whiskies — one Single Malt and the other Single Pot-Still. Both are 100% barley, triple distilled, and non-chill-filtered. They aged one in American ex-Bourbon casks and the other aged in French ex-Cognac casks using Limousin oak and blended them together. The French casks came from the Legaret Family estate — makers of DEAU Cognac — and bring tannins and fruit notes. The American casks deliver vanilla and oakier flavors. The resulting elixir is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

*Writers' Tears has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.

It is said that when Irish writers suffered from ‘Writer's Block’ and that when they cried they cried tears of Whiskey. Most, if not all of them, sought comfort and inspiration from “The Water of Life” (Whiskey). The relaxing characteristics of Whiskey helped many of them overcome writer’s block and produce inspired works of poetry, prose and plays. Writer’s Tears, is a salute to these great Irish writers.
Irishman signature blend was created by Bernard Walsh, in 1999.
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!
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 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.
Irish Coffee recipe: 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 3-4 tablespoons Irish Whiskey, heavy cream - slightly whipped.
