About McConnell's Sherry Cask Irish Whisky

McConnell brothers John and James started selling whisky in 1776, and their product soon found its footing in Ireland. After the family built a sprawling distillery on the banks of the River Lagan, the distillery thrived for 150 years. After a fire destroyed the compound, the distillery was rebuilt ― just in time for Prohibition. McConnell's disappeared for nearly a century until 2020 when the brand was reborn as both one of the oldest and newest names in Irish whisky. Following in the footsteps of the original McConnell's, the whisky is a creamy, citrusy, floral, fruity, and smoky blend of malt and grain spirit. The Sherry Cask expression that was released in 2022 starts with their regular 5-year-old whisky that was matured in 1st fill ex-bourbon casks. Then, the whisky is finished in oloroso sherry casks, imparting the spirit with rich dried fig, dark chocolate, and lingering spice notes. The sherry-finished Irish whisky is bottled at 92 proof.

About McConnell's Irish Whisky

It all began way back in 1776 for McConnell's Irish Whisky. It was then that the McConnell brothers John and James started selling whisky that quickly found its footing and came to be extremely sought-after in Ireland. This prompted the family to build a sprawling distillery on the banks of the River Lagan. The distillery thrived for more than 150 years until disaster struck in 1909. A fire destroyed the compound, consuming more than 500,000 gallons of whisky. The distillery was rebuilt, but just as things were starting to return to normal, Prohibition outlawed the sale of spirits in America. The largest international market for Irish whisky was gone, and McConnell's disappeared in the process ― together with the majority of Irish whisky producers.

Nearly a century later, J+J McConnell's was reborn as both one of the oldest and newest names in Irish whisky. Note the lack of "e" in whisky ― this comes down to the "e" finding its way into the word in the 1900s. By that time, McConnell's was an established brand and they decided to keep with tradition.

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%.
