About Pearse The Original Blended Irish Whiskey
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.
A blended Irish Whiskey aged in all Bourbon barrels ranging 3-5 years grain and malt blend. This Whiskey has malt whiskey in it that has been produced on the stills that are now in place at Pearse Lyons Distillery at St. James.
On the nose this is a relaxing whiskey with a slightly citrus note and a subtle wisp of smoke. It has mellow malt tones and has an aroma of light honey fruits with floral notes. This whiskey has a light, smooth and easy taste with a hint of spearmint that warms to hints of semi-sweet chocolate, light oak wood, creamy vanilla, and light caramel. It has a mild malt character, is well balanced and finishes with a crisp smooth spice.

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%.
