Writers Tears Copper Pot Irish Whiskey
Deep within the scenic Carlow countryside, sits the 18th century home of the Walsh Whiskey. The family owned and operated company was founded by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh, previous owners of a ski chalet in France, in search of the perfect Irish whiskey with which to spike their famous coffee. Eventually, their search led them to the founding of their whiskey brand Irishman in 1999. Set out to rediscover Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago, they initially contracted their distilling to Bushmills. After becoming successful they were eventually able to build their own distillery. The Walsh Whiskey ceremoniously opened in June of 2016, in the heart of Southern Irish farm country where they produce four versions of The Irishman, three Writer's Tears, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur. The picturesque Walsh Whiskey marks the return of Whiskey distilling to County Carlow for the first time in over 200 years. With its three specially crafted imported pot stills built in the legendary Scottish Forsyths and two, forty plate column stills. They are the only independent Irish Whiskey distillery to produce the three styles of Irish Whiskey pot still, malt, and grain under one roof, in one still room. Walsh Whiskey has the capacity to produce 650,000 cases of Whiskey per annum. Writers' Tears is a truly unique vatting of Single Malt and Single Pot Still whiskeys. This expression is non-peated and triple distilled from 60% Pot Stilland 40% Malt. After being distilled the Irish whiskey is matured and aged in American Oak bourbon casks. This incredibly aromatic, flavorful expression won a Gold medal at the International Spirits Challenge in London. It is also one of the highest rated Irish Whiskeys in Jim Murrays Iconic "Whiskey Bible." "Altogether a very unusual Irish Whiskey, a throwback to the last century where spiced Pure Pot Still whiskey was married with Floral Single Malt" Jim Murray. It has also been added to Ian Buxton's publication "101 Whiskeys to try before you die."
