Product Description

Paddy Irish Whiskey

A triple distilled from the finest quality barley and water. It is a blended Irish Whiskey made with all three styles of Irish whiskey: single pot still, single malt and grain. This ensures a whiskey, which is particularly light, well balanced and pure. Maturation in oak casks for up to seven years, Paddy whiskey mellows, and takes on it’s distinctive rich, golden color. Two percent of Paddy Whiskey is lost to the atmosphere during maturation. This evaporated whiskey has come to be called ‘The Angel’s Share.’

Nose
Fresh and lively, aromatic – a complex interplay of nutty maltiness, woodland fragrances and spice, with hints of honey and vanilla.

Taste
Mild, soft, a distinctive mellow maltiness, a touch of sweet oil, spiciness – and again those background notes of honey, vanilla, toasted wood.

Finish
A sweetness gently fading, mellow maltiness and mild woody notes lingering pleasingly.

 


A Nip of History

First produced in 1779, it changed it’s name in 1913 to Paddy in honor of legendary salesman Paddy J. O’Flaherty. Patrick O’Flaherty joined the Cork Distilleries Company as a traveling salesman. Paddy covered an area stretching from Youghal to Mallow selling the rather long rolling name of ‘Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey.’

When Paddy travelled from pub to pub by train and jaunting car, he always drew a crowd as he was known for generously sharing a round. As everyone got a taste for the ‘Cork Distillery Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey,’ it put pressure on the pubs to keep it in stock. When they ran low on stocks, they wrote to the distillery asking for another case of ‘Paddy Flaherty’s whiskey.’

The name stuck so much so that in 1912, Cork Distilleries officially changed the name of the whiskey to ‘Paddy Irish Whiskey.’
