Happy 4th of July to our friends across the pond! This celebration holds a special place for both Ireland and the USA, with almost half a million of Irish ancestry or birth in the States today. And, with the arrival of Irish immigrants, came the idea of whiskey-making to American shores. And so, we’ve put together a list of rye, bourbon, American whiskies, and even some competitions for this special day! Be sure to read more below and enjoy.



  1. Pappy Lottery


Celtic Whiskey has once again teamed up with Hi-Spirits Ireland to bring you the annual Pappy Van Winkle Lottery! Each month one lucky customer will be drawn from the lottery and that customer will be given the opportunity to purchase one of the rare and collectable Pappy Van Winkle whiskeys available for that month.


Pappy Van Winkle American whiskies are easily some of the most well-known and collectable bourbons in the world, they've won just about every award worth winning and each expression is becoming increasingly harder to find. Pappy Van Winkle became a household name across America when celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain drank it on screen in 2012's, Layover, saying “If God made Bourbon, this is what he’d make.” This world-famous, hand-crafted whiskey is known for its silky smooth and fruity flavours along with great complexity and a Cognac-like oakiness and high ABV. Don't miss your opportunity to get your hands on one of these very hard-to-find whiskies!

The second edition of the Jack Daniel's Master Distiller series. This limited release celebrates Jess Motlow who presided over the distillery during the difficult Prohibition era.

  1. Jack Daniels Master Distiller No.3 1 Litre


Another incredible limited edition release bottling that celebrates the seven Master Distillers who worked at Jack Daniel's since its beginning.

Michter’s heritage traces back to America's first whiskey company, founded in 1753, and consists of some of the finest single barrel and truly small batch whiskeys available. From the refill-cask-aged unblended American whiskey to classic sour mash, there's something for everyone, with young and old bourbon and rye, as well as whiskeys that focus on the casks used for maturation.

A little background about the prize: Bomberger's Bourbon honours the legacy of the former distillery known as Bomberger's in the 1800's and later as Michter's in the 20th Century. This is a small batch product with a rich, sweet, fruity, and bold flavour profile due to the fact that a small portion of the whiskey spent time in Chinquapin oak, a species of oak that imparts strong character.



7. Heaven’s Door Straight Rye


Heaven's Door is an award-winning collection of handcrafted American whiskeys co-created with iconic musician and artist, Bob Dylan. The Straight Rye expression breaks with tradition by finishing in toasted "Cigar Barrels", air-dried in the low-lying mountain region of Vosges, France. This proprietary finishing results in a smoother, approachable rye with notes of orange peel, coriander, and spice.


ABV: 43% | €102.00
