There are limited amounts of Connemara 12 Year Old made each year, partly due to the popularity of their non aged statement version, which uses much of the stock of their peated malt before it can reach 12 years of age. If you are a fan of smoky scotch whiskey then this is the perfect Irish whiskey to try.[Read more…] about Connemara 12 Year Old Peated Single Malt Whiskey Review
An Unconventional Irish Whiskey
Rising From The Ashes
Blackpitts Peated Single Malt Whiskey is inspired by the old ancient Blackpitts area just behind the Teeling Whiskey Distillery. Blackpitts was the traditional home to some of the largest barley malting houses in Dublin, Ireland. By using smoke from peat to dry the barley during the malting process, the resulting peated malt produces a distinctive smoky taste profile which is the signature of a Peated Single Malt.[Read more…] about Teeling Blackpitts Peated Single Malt Whiskey Review
Dating Back to 1872 Yellowstone Bourbon Whiskey is one of Kentucky’s Oldest Brands
Yellowstone Kentucky straight bourbon borrows its name from America’s very first national park. In 1872, Yellowstone bourbon was crafted to honor the park’s historic wonder, beauty and pioneering spirit.
It all began when a man named Jacob Beam sold his first barrels of corn whiskey. This family was there at the start of the Kentucky bourbon business boom. Seven generations later, brothers Steve and Paul Beam started their own chapter of the family history book as the proud Kentucky bourbon distillers behind Limestone Branch Distillery.[Read more…] about Yellowstone Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Review
The Wild Atlantic Way is thriving & The Sliabh Liag Distillery in Donegal has brought craft whiskey back after an absence of 175 years.
Here on The Whiskey Trail we always say “Every Whiskey Tells a Story” this is an understatement when talking about Sliabh Liag and Silkie Whiskey. Just as Donegal is often thought of as a place apart, the Sliabh Liag brands are intentionally challenging and seeking to be very different. The philosophy is simple: liquids and recipes which rely on strong local provenance and are worth talking about; striking designs that challenge conventional codes; to root each brand in a traditional local legend or folk tale.[Read more…] about The Legendary Silkie Blended Irish Whiskey Review
Blackpitts is the second release from their new Dublin Distillery and continues its unconventional approach to expanding the Irish whiskey category
Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive whiskey producer, is proud to announce the release of a new expression of Teeling Whiskey and their first release of Peated Single Malt, Blackpitts. This continues its journey and builds on its reputation in crafting unique and interesting expressions of Irish whiskey that explore the full spectrum of flavours that it can offer. Blackpitts joins the very limited offerings of Peated Single Malt from Ireland that are currently available and helps revive an ancient way of making Irish whiskey, using smoke created by burning peat or turf, as it is widely known, while malting the barley. This was a practice extensively used in Ireland before the wide availability and use of coal in the Irish whiskey industry.[Read more…] about Teeling Whiskey Unveils First Dublin Distilled Peated Single Malt Blackpitts

Redbreast Whiskey Announce a New Wingman
It goes without saying that Redbreast are not fans of spilling. Sharing, however, is in their nature. With this confliction, Redbreast have two big developments to spill/share with our Birdhouse members… The name behind our whiskey, the face on the front of our label, is now the voice of it all. Introducing Robin Redbreast, our new spokesbird. Oh, and look for a cameo from a pair of familiar faces. Discover it here.
And now to Project Wingman, our new partnership with BirdLife International, where we’re proud to come together to keep the common bird common. Keep an eye here and on our social channels to see how you can lend a hand. Hint: Holding a glass will help. Two bits of bird news with one stone, not bad.
Now over to you to #passiton
Why the Robin Redbreast?
Since our Chairman first set his eyes on Robin Redbreast back in 1912 — and decided upon our name there and then — we haven’t looked back.
But now we’re casting our eye further afield to other common birds such as the chaffinch, starling, barn swallow, wren and the blue tit. Why? Because to prevent such birds from becoming endangered, we have to think ahead. Our efforts will help safeguard habitats, educate, and monitor behaviour. Fortunately you can help the common bird from the comfort of your own home — through some exciting initiatives we have to keep under our wing for now.
Given that it takes 12 years for our end product, it’s only fair that we use our spare time helping out the inspiration for where it all started.
We’ve always had our eye on quality, but now we’re looking at quantity — of a different nature.
We’re now proud partners with BirdLife International in a bid to keep the common bird common.
