JJ Corry The Gael Irish Whiskey

75cl

'J.J. was a true entrepreneur and innovator, born on a farm close to our brand home,  because he was not the first born son he was forced to make this own way in the world. We know that he dabbled in auctioneering before he set up this shop in 1890. Once he did acquire the premises and after marrying the girl from the pub next door, he immediately set about setting up his own brand. The town of Kilrush was a busy international port in the 1890s and J.J. would have purchased goods from all over the world directly from the Ship's Captains' fresh from their travels. He sold tea from India, Rum from the Caribbean, Wine from France, Port from Portugal in addition to Guns, Ammunition and Bicycles. A true renaissance man J.J. was a pillar of the community and an early adaptor of technology. He even went so far as to invent a Bicycle called 'The Gael' in the 1890s.  But most of all he was known for his hospitality and of course his  whiskey.'

 

'Named after a Bicycle J.J. Corry invented, Our first release The Gael took us just about two years to develop. First we sourced excellent quality and very rare mature Irish Whiskey. Then we set about classifying each cask we have into a particular flavour block. Finally we began blending to create a Classic Irish Whiskey, one bursting with juicy fruit flavours. The Gael has not spent any time on our farm, rather it is our first attempt at beginning to express the house style of whiskey we would like to make in the coming years, once our own stock is mature. Our first batch is only 7500 bottles. '
