Whiskey

 

 I grew up loving the sounds and smells of the bar, the craic, the laughter and the smell of the beer and the whiskey. Especially the whiskey.
Now that I am making my own whiskey I am naming it after my father.
In 50 years as a bartender he saw a lot of things and heard a lot of stories, but like all good bartenders, he was true to his code and told no tales.

My father, John Mulgrew. "The Quiet Man" or as they say in the Irish ďAn Fear Ciuin


The Quiet Man 8 Year Old Single Malt


The difference between a good whiskey and a great whiskey lies not just in picking the best ingredients and the most skilled distiller, it lies in selecting the finest barrels to let the whiskey mature  in.


We had a fabulous time selecting the best Irish Single Malt Whiskey we could find and re casked it in first fill Bourbon barrels to let the whiskey soak up those wonderful sweet and citrus spicy oak flavours and the result is The Quiet Man 8 Year Old Single Malt and we think itís a great whiskey.

The Quiet Man Traditional Blended Irish Whiskey

What makes a whiskey special, the ingredients the water and the distiller ?

Yes, but more than that itís the wood the whiskey matures in.

We took the best Grain and Single Malt Irish Whiskies we could find and  re casked them in first fill Bourbon barrels to let the whiskey soak up those wonderful sweet yet spicy oak flavours. Then we blended them to create what we feel is a fabulous Irish Whiskey.
