DescriptionThe Irishman Whiskey was founded in 1999 by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh with the mission to craft authentic, world-class spirits in Ireland. Ireland has a long history of whiskey distillation, dating back to 1558. The Walsh clan, the largest in Ireland, has been involved with whiskey production since 1870. Produced from only the purest ingredients, The Irishman Whiskey reflects centuries of experience and passion, resulting in a truly authentic Irish spirit.The Irishman 12-Year-Old Single Malt is a timeless Irish Malt which is matured in first fill, flame-charred Bourbon barrels. Each year we will select only a handful of the best barrels, to make the cut for our 12-Year-Old. A maximum of 6000 bottles will be produced each year. Each bottle comes numbered by batch as a mark of quality and is non-chill filtered.
