Walsh Whiskey And Dick Mack’s Brewhouse Create Super-Premium Irish Whiskey

Walsh Whiskey and Dick Mack’s Brewhouse have collaborated once again to create a once-off, super-premium Irish whiskey, finished in a rare craft beer cask called the The Irishman - Peated Red Ale Cask Finish.

The super-premium Irish whiskey is a triple-distilled, non-chill filtered, marriage of aged Single Malt and Single Pot Still Irish whiskeys by Walsh Whiskey in Carlow.

The whiskey is aged for an additional nine months in a Peated Red Ale Cask from Dick Mack’s Brewhouse in Dingle and bottled at 50.1% ABV.

'Incredibly Rare Irish Whiskey'

Just 276 bottles were produced of this incredibly rare Irish whiskey, with the majority pre-sold to members of The Irish Whiskey Society, Dublin Fire Brigade Whiskey Club and Carlow Whiskey Society.

It will be served to patrons of the legendary Dick Mack’s Pub in Dingle, and a limited allocation of just 120 bottles will be available for sale from James J. Fox of Dublin from the first week in July.

This unique whiskey (single cask) has a recommended retail price of €79.99.

 "As well as creating delicious concoctions, we always knock great fun out of our collaborations," Bernard Walsh, managing director, Walsh Whiskey.

"I am very proud of this peated red ale finish to our The Irishman Founder’s Reserve whiskey, reinforcing our belief to always give more,” he said.

Third Collaboration 

It is the third time that Walsh Whiskey has collaborated with Dick Mack’s Brewhouse to create a unique whiskey. Previous releases were The Irishman – Coffee Stout Cask finish (2018) and Writers’ Tears - Seaweed IPA Cask finish (2020).

Finn MacDonnell of Dick Mack’s Brewhouse & Pub said, “With three unique bottlings together with Walsh Whiskey so far, we seem to be doing something right with these special creations."
