The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey
1849 was the year that the famous 69th Infantry
Regiment was formed ? that's the one that leads the New York City's
St. Patrick's Day Parade. The Irish Brigade has fought in the Civil War,
both World Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan, becoming one of the most honored
military units in the US. So, where does Whiskey enter the picture? This unique
Irish-American dram comes from Ireland to pay its tributes to The Fighting
69th's Irish heritage.
The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is distilled in
Ireland using quality (un)malted barley, corn, and pure Irish water. It's
triple-distilled in a combination of handmade copper-pot stills and column
stills and aged in single- and double-char ex-Bourbon casks, Port, and
Oloroso Sherry casks. It's a complex blend of Whiskey aged between 4 and 6
years with a higher percentage of malted barley used, compared to
your regular Irish Whiskey. Severely drinkable, this malty and smooth dram
makes for the best kind of tribute.
The Finest High Quality Distilling Grains We use only the
?nest high quality distilling grains. Our mash bill consists of the finest
barley and malted barley, which gives Irish whiskey its unique and distinctive
character. We use a variety of mash bills and complete the minimum 3 year aging
process in bourbon casks. We then create a variety of distillates using unique
secondary cask finishing.
Triple Distilled in Copper Pot Stills Our whiskey is triple-distilled
in handmade copper pot stills, uniquely designed for maximum vapor and copper
interaction. Our Fighting 69th Irish whiskey is a unique and superb blend of
three distinct distillates, which undergo separate finishing processes. We then
choose which finishes, in the right proportions, create the optimal blend.
Gently Cask Aged in Ireland All of our whiskies are
matured in once used bourbon casks for a minimum of 3 years. We then
secondarily finish our whiskies in a variety of other casks, including
Single-Char casks, Double-Char casks, Oloroso Sherry casks, Rum casks, and Port
casks. This uniquely finished blend results in a fine distillate that is both of
robust character and a full smooth finish, a fitting tribute to the Fighting 69th
