      All about Irish whiskey

      What is Irish whiskey?

      A popular variety of dark distilled whiskey, Irish whiskey comes entirely from Ireland. Unmalted barley with a mix of other grains is the main ingredient. Triple-distillation gives this liquor the smoothness that makes it different from Scotch whisky. Brewers age the Irish variety for a minimum of three years in wood barrels for a sweet, caramel taste.

      What is its flavor profile?

      This whiskey liquor has a smooth and velvety texture on the palate with light fruity notes and cereal grain flavor. You'll also taste subtle notes of vanilla that enhance the smoothness of this famed liquor.

      Popular Emerald Isle whiskey styles

      Blended whiskey is the most popular style and includes several famous brands. Blended varieties may include two whiskey types and feature deep and bold flavors. If you're looking for a unique distilled whiskey, we recommend single pot style whiskey that contains both malted and unmalted barley, distilled in a single pot. Exclusive to Ireland only, single pot whiskey has a spicy flavor, thanks to the mix of malted and unmalted barley.

      How to drink Irish whiskey

      The smoothness of this distilled whiskey makes it easy to serve it the way you like. Enjoy it on the rocks or use it to whip up delicious cocktails. With a bottle of this smooth whiskey in your home bar, you'll find numerous possibilities for delectable cocktails, including refreshing martinis or dessert cocktails. Add it to coffee and top it with whipped cream for a warming Irish coffee drink on a cold night.

      Food pairings

      This whiskey crafted on the Emerald Isle pairs well with traditional dishes such as Irish stew or soda bread. Proteins served with a mildly sweetened sauce complement the rich taste of the whiskey. The classic Irish dish of roast lamb with mint jelly is a tasty accompaniment to this luscious liquor.
