May your glass be ever full.  May the roof over your head be always strong.  And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead...'Faol saol agat, gob fliuch, agus bás in Éirinn. '- Long life to you, a wet mouth, and death in Ireland...  Saint Patrick was a gentleman, Who through strategy and stealth, Drove all the snakes from Ireland, Here’s a toasting to his health. But not too many toastings Lest you lose yourself and then Forget the good Saint Patrick And see all those snakes again...The word whiskey is an Anglicisation of the ancient Gaelic term "uisce beatha" which translates as "water of life"...

Bushmills Irish Whiskey - Smooth 80-proof blended Irish whiskey. A blend of single malt and single grain whiskies.


Cooley Distillery - Independent, Irish owned whiskey distillery.

Cooley is the only Irish whiskey distillery established in the entire 20th century and is now the only Irish-owned independent whiskey distillery. It is located in the north-east of Dundalk and is also known by its old name John Locke's. The plant was designed originally for the production of neutral spirit from potatoes with the production being switched over to whiskey with the acquisition through Cooley's in 1989.  It produces many different whiskeys, including single malts and blends. The distillery bottlings are Tyrconnel (single malt), Kilbeggan (blend), and Connemara (peated-smoked single malt). Apart from brands Cooley provides a full range of Irish whiskeys to 23 of the top 25 retailers in Europe. Cooley also distills quality whiskeys such as Knappoque, Clontarf, Brennans and Hennessy for international drinks companies.


Green Spot Irish Whiskey - Longest running pot still whiskey.

Green Spot is the oldest continuously made pot-still Irish Whiskey. It is distilled by

John Jameson & Son for long established Dublin wine merchants, Mitchell & Son.

Knappogue Castle Single Malt

Preston Drogheda Irish Malt Whiskey - A rare Irish single malt whiskey.


Note:  Jameson, Power and Cork distilleries in Southern Ireland merged forming the Irish Distillers Group.

The first drop of recorded whiskey of any kind, history tells us, was produced on the Auld Sod by Irish monks somewhere back in the Middle Ages around the 7th or 8th century.

Whiskey/Whisky Categories - Courtesy: Cooley Distilleries Ireland

1. Irish whiskey is carefully distilled, and produces a clean, refined spirit that matures in the casks into a smooth whiskey. The Irish Whiskey Act of 1980 states that: The spirits have to be distilled in the Republic of Ireland or in Northern Ireland and that the spirits have been matured in wooden casks in a warehouse in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland for a period of no less than 3 years.

2. Scotch Whisky: The principle types of whiskey / whisky are also characteristic of the particular geographical regions of the world. For example the Scotch Whisky Order (1990) and the Scotch Whisky Act (1988) define Scotch whisky. They state that Scotch whisky must be produced at a distillery in Scotland. The word "Scotch" in this definition is of geographical and not generic significance.

3. Bourbon Whiskey: As people emigrated from Ireland and Scotland to the US and Canada they brought with them their distilling skills which were adapted according to the environment and raw materials available to them. These immigrants produced the rye whiskey that became the first "American" whiskey in 1733 (spelt with an e just like Irish whiskey). Bourbon is made from American corn and was originally produced in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Only Bourbon whiskey regulations require that it be matured in a new charred, white oak barrel.

4. Canadian whisky (spelt without an e) is a blend of whiskies most commonly made in column stills from wheat, corn, barley and rye (either singly or combined), and must be aged for a minimum of three years in new wood, bourbon, sherry and brandy barrels.
