In 1999, Bernard Walsh created The Irishman brand with his wife Rosemary, and launched his first Irish Whiskey in 2006 with the idea of revitalizing old nineteenth-century whiskey recipes. The Irishman is one of the few independent companies to market whiskey.

Combining traditional skills and modernity, Bernard Walsh gathers inspiration from the glorious era when Ireland was the largest whiskey exporter ahead of Scotland, in the 18th century and 19th century.

The Irishman is inspired from two types of whiskey that where then produced: Single Malt and Single Pot Still (produced from malted barley and non malted barley).The Irishman was coined “the future of Irish whiskey”, by Bernard Walsh. Each step of The Irishman triple-distillation is carefully surveyed to produce the smoothest, most authentic, savory and complex whiskey. Eventually, Royal Oak in County Carlow will host the new distillery, the Walsh Whiskey Company, bound to be soon built soon as announced by Bernard Walsh.

Colour: light gold.

Nose: bursting with ripe fruits and spices, ginger, a spark of orange, black pepper paired with green apple, blackcurrant over a vanilla backdrop.

Palate: very sweet, medium spiced, structured by oaky flavours, cocoa, creme caramel and coconut. 

Finish: long and lingering over Bourbon oak, nutty and malty flavours.
