Writer's Tears Irish Whiskey

Writer's Tears Irish Whiskey pays tribute to the Irish Whiskey style that was popular in the 19th and early 20th century.  It was a Golden era for Irish Whiskey and for great Irish novelists, poets, and playwrights. Ireland was the leading whiskey producing nation in the world during this time.  It was the birthplace of literary giants such as George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Lady Gregory and Samuel Beckett.  Many of these great writers would take refuge at their local pubs, enjoying a dram of their favorite whiskey. The"champagne of Irish Whiskey" as it was called was a  master blend of pot still and malt distilled in copper pots.  Many of the great Irish writers of the time enjoyed the flavorful, full bodied taste and creamy texture so much so that it was said when they cried, their tears were whiskey.

Walsh Whiskey Distillery recreated that 19th century recipe in Writer's Tears Copper Pot Irish Whiskey. Their passion is in Ireland's Golden Era, but with innovations for today's Irish Whiskey Revival.  Writer's Tears is a unique vatting of Single Malt Irish Whiskey and Aged Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, no grain whiskey is used. It is triple distilled and matured and aged in American oak bourbon casks. It tastes of spice and honey and toasted oak.  We recommend you enjoy it neat or over a gentlemen's cube.
