Writers’ Tears is a unique vatting of Aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskey. Distilled entirely from Pot Still and Malt, without Grain, this is a truly special Irish whiskey. Writers’ Tears is triple distilled, non-peated and matured and aged in American Oak bourbon casks.
Writers’ Tears is a unique style of whiskey embedded in Irish history. At a time when Irish whiskey was distilled exclusively in copper pots, two styles flourished: Malt and Pot Still. The marriage of both styles became known as the ‘Champagne of Irish Whiskey’.
The story goes that at that time, the relaxing characteristics of whiskey helped many a great Irish writer and scribe overcome writers block to produce inspired works of poetry, prose and plays. It was said that when Irish writers cried, they cried tears of whiskey.
Writers’ Tears is a salute not only to great Irish writers of this generation and bygone years, but also to the artistic set who derive creative inspiration from the past, present and future.
