Paddy Irish Whiskey Hard to find in stock!A triple distilled blended Irish Whiskey produced in Cork and made, unusually, with all three styles of Irish whiskey: single pot still, single malt and grain. First produced in 1779, it wasn't until 1913 that it changed it's name to Paddy after legendary salesman Paddy Flaherty. Before that it had the rather catchy name of "Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey".Paddy Old Irish started life as a generic whiskey from the Cork Distilleries Company, which traces its roots back to 1779. More than a century later, that company hired one Patrick J. OFlaherty as a traveling salesman, who was so good that his name became synonymous with the wares he peddled. Depending on which version of the story you believe, the distillery either honored their top salesman or bowed to marketing reality by renaming their signature whiskey Paddy in 1912.Paddy Whiskey is distilled three times from the finest quality barley and water. This ensures a whiskey, which is particularly light, well balanced and pure.Its relatively low pot-still content and uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey, ensures Paddy is 'One of the softest of all Ireland's whiskeys'Jim Murray, International Whiskey Connoisseur.
