St. Patrick’s Day with The Pogues Irish Whiskey

0

The groundbreaking Celtic punk band, The Pogues, has launched a new Irish whiskey in their own name. This artisanal Irish Whiskey is blended from 50% 10-year single malt and 50% 5-to-7-year grain and crafted at West Cork Distillers, one of two remaining 100% independently owned and operated distilleries in Ireland, and the only distillery to malt its own Irish-grown barley.

Now Available in US

The eponymous Irish whiskey from The Pogues, whose Celtic take on punk took rock by storm in the ‘80s, is now available to band fans and finer whiskey lovers alike in the US, after rolling out in the UK last fall. The exceptionally full bodied, yet smooth-finishing blend, is produced by West Cork Distillers, one of only two remaining independently owned and operated distilleries in Ireland.

Having sampled their share of brown spirits over the years, the band, known for Fairytale in New York and other hits, was deeply involved in the creation of The Pogues Irish Whiskey from start to finish. Rich with the band’s legendary spirit, character and poetic rebelliousness, The Pogues Irish Whiskey is a unique blend of 50% 10-year single malt Irish whiskey aged in sherry casks and 50% 5-7 year Irish grain whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks. The resulting liquid has an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth, intense flavor.

Notably, West Cork is Ireland’s only whiskey producer to still malt its own barley, enabling exceptional precision and control over flavor profile.

The Pogues Irish Whiskey is distilled using ingredients indigenous to Ireland, including locally grown grain and spring water from the idyllic River Ilen. It’s carefully crafted in small batches in handmade copper stills at West Cork’s distillery in Skiberdeen, the cultural home of Irish whiskey.
