About Pearse Distiller’s Choice Blended Whiskey
A blend of Irish grain and malt Whiskeys, hand selected by our head distiller. It is predominantly aged in Bourbon barrels with a small amount of Sherry barrel aged whiskey in the mix. It is a 3 to 9-year-old blend. This Irish Whiskey has single malt in it that has been produced on the stills that are now at Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James.
On the nose this specially blended Irish Whiskey gives fresh citrus notes with subtle spices and dried fruits giving a light fruit cake finish.
On tasting Pearse Distiller’s Choice, you will experience a smooth, warm, light oak flavor with hints of green grape evolving to caramelized pear. As Pearse Distiller’s Choice develops you will savor a hint of cocoa and dried fruits while finishing with notes of stewed apple, clove, and custard.

About Pearse Lyons
Pearse Lyons Whiskey pays homage to Dr. T. Pearse Lyons, an Irish master distiller who eventually founded Alltech Distilling Company in Lexington, Kentucky. Lyons, who received a Ph.D. in yeast fermentation, has whiskey in his blood: five generations of coopers hail from the Lyons' family and Lyons own son received his Ph.D. in brewing and distilling in Scotland.
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%.
