Introducing our new hand-crafted Concannon Irish Whiskey!

We’re excited to tell you about a brand new product we’ll be introducing in February – Concannon Irish Whiskey. Crafted in Ireland in conjunction with Cooley Distillery, our artisan whiskey has been years in the making, a true labor of love and a salute to our Irish heritage.

What makes it different: Concannon Irish Whiskey is a refined blend of malt Irish whiskey and grain Irish whiskey created by master blender Noel Sweeney. Double distilled for proper balance, character and purity, the whiskey is then matured in barrels for at least four years. What sets Concannon Irish Whiskey apart is that we age it in former Concannon wine barrels in addition to traditional ex-bourbon barrels! This unique step lends extra fruity notes to the final blend.

How it tastes: Our new Concannon Irish Whiskey is a unique beverage with aromas and flavors all its own. It offers classic notes of sweet honey, citrus, malt, caramel and golden raisin. Thanks to years spent gently resting in barrels through Ireland’s cool summers and mild winters, it also boasts enticing flavors of oak and vanilla. Traditionally, fine Irish whiskey is enjoyed neat or on the rocks. However, we’ve also discovered that Concannon Irish Whiskey can be used to craft a wide array of delicious cocktails. We’ll be sharing recipes in the weeks to come, so stay tuned!

Where to find it: Look for Concannon Irish whiskey at your local retailer beginning in February. If you can’t find it in stock, ask the store manager to order it, and help spread the word about our new Concannon Irish Whiskey. Slainte!

UPDATE 3/9/12: The Concannon Irish Whiskey website is now live. Visit us at http://concannonirishwhiskey.com/

    Here’s one to try, I own a large Billiards Sports Bar and this is very popular… we call it an “Irish Cannon Bomb” Tap 1/2 pint of Guinness, then in a separate shot glass add 1 oz of Concannon Irish Whiskey and 1/2 ounce of Baileys Irish Cream. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness glass and drink it down fast! It’s Irish times 3! This will make your Irish Eyes SMILE!
    Just in time for St. Paddy’s Day!

    Please check with your local retailer. If they don’t have it, please request it and help spread the word about this great whiskey.

    Sipping some right now. Well done! It’s pretty smooth, but still has some bite. It’s sort of similar to Powers, but a bit more complex on the end.

    I’m as fan of Irish Whiskey but $20 is more than I’m willing to spend to try it. Any introductory coupons or a place in the Phoenix area where I can give it a try?

    We just rolled out Concannon Irish whiskey here at The Atwood Cafe in Chicago! What a great addition to our amber spirits. If you’re curious come in and ask Ray, Tom or Will for a taste. We’re located in the Hotel Burnham at State and Washington.

      Hi Tom,

    A wine distributer friend brought a bottle over to my son-in-laws house last week. I thought it was great. Very smooth.
    Trust me, I’ve done a few Irish whisky taste tests at St.. Patty’s day celebrations.

    It would have been more intriguing if you made it yourselves, seeing if we can develop some Irish whiskey distillery expertise domestically (just in case Ireland were to disappear). Note what St. George spirits is doing, just west of you all, in Alameda.

  14. Robert Quick says:

    I’ve never written a review for anything before. This whiskey is truly one of my favorites. Such an incredible value for the price. I prefer it over The Glenlivet and other finer scotches and many Irish whiskeys for much more money. Only four years aging and such a wonderful complexity. I hope they have a few more tricks up their sleeve.

  15. Brian says:

    I am waiting for hurricane Sandy to pass through Maryland. In the meantime, I am enjoying this excellent whiskey! It will now be the new choice at the local liquor store.

  16. Concannon Vineyard says:

    Stay safe Brian! Glad you’re enjoying our whiskey!

  17. Preston Singletary says:

    Recently discovered Concannon Irish whiskey here in Washington’s recently privatised liquor retailing system and have been impressed. In the past my favorite Irish whiskey has been Tullamore Dew and I give Concannon high marks for its nicely complex flavors and its smoothness. I think it may be my new favorite.

  18. Adam F says:

    I found your whiskey while visiting Arizona from Canada and loved it but was dissapointed that it wasn’t available when I returned home. Are there plans to start shipping to Canada (specifically Vancouver, B.C.)) in the near future?

  19. It tastes like my many trips to Ireland. That haunting rush of the grain against your tongue, round and soft. A mild burn is encased in sweet corn pudding. There are whisps of stone fruits and sea air.

    I love it!
