About Paddy Old Devil's Apple Irish Whiskey
Situated in the province of Munster, the Cork Distilleries Company was founded in 1877. Two years after it opened its doors, the distillery began bottling its first whiskey, and in 1882, the company hired a young Corkman named Paddy Flaherty as salesman. Flaherty was a classic charmer, and would travel to various pubs in Cork and buy drinks for the patrons. His sales techniques were so impressive that his name became synonymous with the whiskey both in Ireland and abroad. In 1912, the distillery officially renamed the whiskey Paddy Irish Whiskey in his honor.
Paddy Devil's Apple is made with Paddy Old Irish Whiskey, together with genuine apple and cinnamon flavors. It has a slightly warm, spicy aroma with hints of ginger and cloves. Notes of sweet, crisp apples and citrus predominate, and are complemented by a subtle, cinnamon undertone. The warming finish is well-balanced, with tart notes of apples and spicy notes of ginger.

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%.
