About Egan's 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey
P. & H. Egan was founded by Patrick Egan in 1852, in Tullamore Ireland. The brand became very successful at brewing. By the late 19th century Henry and Patrick Jr., expanded the business into one of the largest business in the area.
Along with its own brands, P. & H. Egan became bottlers for Guinness, Bass, and Jameson. Over a century later in 2013, the fifth and sixth generation of Egan’s revamped the family business, propelling the Egan name back into the world of whiskey.
This 10-year-old Single Malt is the first bottling of the modern Egan era. Named Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey at New York International Spirits Competition in 2015, this special whiskey is a creamy, complex spirit aged in ex-Bourbon casks. Distilled from 100% malted barley you can expect a rich and silky whiskey with light pot-still yet earthy flavors.

About Irish Whiskey
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
