The Fighting 69th has long celebrated its Irish heritage, and in this tradition, we bring you their first Irish Whiskey. In the 19th century, Irish whiskey was the most popular spirit in the world, and today, it is the fastest growing whiskey category in the world. This ﬁne whiskey is a tribute to the Irish-American spirit and a perfect tribute to America’s own Irish Brigade!
We use only the ﬁnest 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.
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.
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 Regiment!
