Irish Whiskey

Irish whiskey is making a strong resurgence worldwide, and the Irish are intent on reclaiming the title of the finest whiskey makers in the world. Tonight we delve deep into Irish culture and taste five distinct types of Irish whiskey.

At its height in the mid-19th century, 88 licensed distilleries, producing more than 12 million 9-liter cases annually, made Irish whiskey the largest global spirits category of the time. However, by the mid-1980s, only two Irish whiskey distilleries remained. When Cooley Distillery opened in 1987, it was the first independent distillery to begin distilling Irish whiskey in over 100 years

Even as late as 2010, there were still only four distilleries in Ireland in operation producing and selling Irish whiskey. However, by April 2019, the number of operational whiskey distilleries in Ireland had increased to 24, demonstrating the scale of Ireland’s Whiskey Renaissance.
