Paddy Old Irish Whiskey came into being with quite an unremarkable name. For a long time, it was officially known as the "Cork Distilling Company Map of Ireland Old Irish Whiskey". Since the Cork Distilling Company produced this whiskey, it makes sense that it would want to include its own name in the product. But why was this whiskey called the "Map of Ireland"? Because this unusual blended whiskey contains all three types of Irish whiskey: single pot still, single malt, and grain.

In 1912, the whiskey shed its cumbersome name for the more memorable "Paddy Old Irish Whiskey", in honour of a famous salesman in Cork who was so good at his job customers would ask for "Paddy Flaherty's whiskey". This fine Irish whiskey is triple distilled and left to mature in oak casks for up to seven years. The final result of all this hard work is one of the softest Irish whiskeys on the market today.

Paddy Old Irish Whiskey also has a deliciously high malt content, in comparison to the other Irish whiskeys on the market. This is the fourth best-selling Irish whiskey in the world for good reason. This east-to-drink, approachable blend has been winning over consumers since the days of Paddy Flaherty. Buy a bottle for yourself and let the map of Ireland dance over your tongue.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Patrick J. O Flaherty (rice, just for friends, and there were many ...) was a peddler. He was hired at the end of the 800 Distilling Company Cork Map of Ireland Old Irish whiskey, with the task of placing the distillate, which already had a century of history. He also took his time to all Irish pubs, and the innate skill and sympathy (as well as many glasses provided free of charge) was able to expand the market beyond Whiskey County Cork. More and more customers require "rice", which in 1912 also became the name of the distillate, replacing the old name. Certainly, the qualities of rice as a salesman, were important, but sympathy alone is not enough to declare the success of this old Irish whiskey. It was the quality of the raw material and the manufacturing process, making him one of the most popular Irish spirits. Produced by the combination of three different styles of Ireland the only one still, malt and oak barrels and aged in-the-point in County Cork, rice whiskey is more than any other embodies the spirit of a true Irish spirit.
