Writers’ Tears is a unique style of whiskey embedded in Irish History, at a time when Irish Whiskey was distilled in copper pots, two styles flourished : Malt and Pot Still, distilled from 100% barley. The Irishman is the Walsh family’s original whiskey and represents the rebirth of the traditional family owned provincial whiskey distilling that thrived during the last golden age of Irish Whiskey at the end of the 1800’s.
I received a wee bottle of Redbreast Dream Cask by surprise, a 32-year-old single pot still whiskey, together with some small gifts, like a beautiful glass. Just found out that here was an empty nest, so the RedBreast was right in time to fill in the gap.
Redbreast Irish whiskey, which is produced by Irish Distillers in Midleton Distillery, has launched the Redbreast Dream Cask, which will be available to buy through its online members’ club, The Birdhouse, from World Whisky Day (Saturday 19th May).
The release follows requests from consumers and whiskey experts over the past 12 months and becomes the first in a new series planned for the coming years.
Jameson Irish whiskey, which is produced by Irish Distillers in Midleton Distillery, has today announced the launch of Jameson Bow Street 18 Years Cask Strength; the first cask strength Jameson to be available globally, which finishes its maturation in Dublin’s only live Maturation House in the Jameson Distillery Bow Street.
A reinterpretation of the revered Jameson 18 Years, the new expression celebrates Jameson’s Dublin heritage by returning part of the production process to the brand’s original home in Smithfield for the first time since 1975.
Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Know for its literary history, funky festivals, mystery, magic and The Dublin Liberties, launched in 2015 and the new distillery will open in 2018. The dynamic neighbourhood, Liberties in Dublin has a lot of old warehouses and these whiskey bottles, they look a bit like miniature warehouses.
Straight, small, with character and each with their own story. Perhaps you need some imagination, but I see two Whiskey warehouses with a golden future.

I am a huge fan of Irish Whiskey, so you can imagine I was looking forward to this online event, the online Walsh Whiskey tasting. Next to the whiskey, a folder was included in the parcel with all the information we needed for this evening.
Inclucing an introduction of the founders, Bernard and Rosemary Walsh, who established the Walsh Whiskey Distillery in 1999 in Royal Oak.
Two people with passion and dedication for what they cherish, Walsh Whiskey.
