March 9, 2017

Teeling Irish Whiskey

Teeling is a true craft whiskey, made with 35% malt whiskey and 65% grain whiskey. This Irish whiskey is unique in the fact that it is aged in rum casks. The casks usually fall between four and seven years old. It has a hint of sweet caramel, cinnamon, and rummy molasses and is a must-try Irish whiskey for sure!

Jameson Irish Whiskey

Jameson is the best selling Irish whiskey in the world. The bottle's label, "sine metu" explains it all, meaning "without fear." Its main ingredients being unmalted and malted barley, maize, and Irish water from the Dungourney River. Jameson is aged in sherry, bourbon, and port barrels and is distilled three times. If you haven't tried this best-seller, you are missing out. Try it straight or in a cocktail, like the Irish Old Fashioned or Irish Maid.

Redbreast Irish Whiskey

Redbreast is a balanced, single pot still Irish whiskey, known for being smooth and rich, with a spicy kick. It is a pure Irish pot still whiskey without the addition of a grain whiskey. At Bluegrass Beverages, we carry the 12 Year Old, the 12 Year Old Cask Strength, and the 15 Year Old.
