About J.J. Corry 'The Flintlock' Batch No. 1 Irish Whiskey
Founded in 2015 by Louise McGuane, J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey is known as Ireland’s first modern Whiskey Bonder. Irish Whiskey Bonding is a business where Bonders all across the Island would source casks and make new Whiskey Spirit to age and blend for local customers.
During the golden era of Irish Whiskey in the 19th century, most Irish whiskey was sold by these Bonders, a traditional practice that died out in the 1930s, due to the near collapse of the Irish whiskey industry. With this decline, Ireland lost hundreds of regional and local styles of whiskey, the art of blending losing its former glory. In honor of the brand of the renowned 19 century local Whiskey Bonder, J.J. Corry from Co. Clare, J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey has resurrected this lost art of Irish Whiskey Bonding.
The Irish company sources new make Whiskey Spirit from Irish distilleries before maturing it in a purpose-built bonded rackhouse located on the McGuane Family farm in Cooraclare, Co. Clare. They source and blend certain rare and mature whiskeys to create their unique house style, while they wait for their spirit to age.
J.J. Corry "The Flintlock" is a blend of three, 100% 16-Year-Old single malts aged in ex-bourbon casks, meticulously chosen for their individual flavor profiles. This special expression won Best Irish Single Malt over 13 years old in the Irish Whiskey Awards 2018. This is JJ Corry’s first small-scale true Bonder’s Blend. A very limited release of 400 bottles, this Irish blend has sweet hints of coconut, baking spice, and peachiness.

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%.
