The Irishman Whiskey range is crafted in South East Ireland by husband and wife, Bernard and Rosemary Walsh who founded the Walsh Distillery in 1999. After working in IT in London perviously, the couple found their calling after moving to Ireland. It is their passion, innovation and attention to detail that add to their quality ingredients and climate that makes this world class premium Irish Whiskey brand the ‘Best Irish Whiskey Brand of the Year’ in the highly accredited New York International Spirits Competition. The Walsh Distillery implements a ‘Field to Bottle’ approach that sees the finest quality malted barley, yeast and water being crafted into this stunning artisan Irish Malt.
