A eminently drinkable Irish whiskey, now being produced again at its home distillery on the River Brosna.
Kilbeggan is a historic distillery, dating back to 1757. The distillery operates the oldest working pot still in the whiskey industry today, a 180 year old still from the Old Tullamore Distillery.
Kilbeggan takes its name from St Bécán, who founded a monastery in area in the 6th century, and was one of the Irish apostles.
The spirit itself has been double distilled, possibly giving it a bit more character than many Irish drams. This whiskey offers notes of oily nuts, caramelised grain and malt, apple, pear, peach, sweet biscuits, some soft wood smoke, honey, oak and dried grass.
A very easy drinking bottling, this would be perfect as an introduction to Irish whiskey, or as a daily drinker.
