ThirstyThursdays: Introducing The Pogues Irish Whiskey

Given the month that is in it with Paddy’s day around the corner and as we celebrate the centenary of the 1916 Rising, there is no better time to announce a new Irish Whiskey to our growing whiskey portfolio.


The Pogues have teamed up with West Cork Distillers to launch their own brand of Irish Whiskey and we are delighted to have them on board.


The Pogues Irish Whiskey

As you would expect, The Pogues Irish Whiskey has as much character as the band itself. Made from a fine blend of grain and single malt Irish whiskey; this mighty drink has an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth intense flavour.


Rebellion Against the Grain


The whiskey is a blend of single malt Irish Whiskey aged in Sherry Casks and Grain Irish Whiskey aged in Bourbon oak casks in small batches of less than 700 litres for three years and a day.

Produced at West Cork with the soul and passion of the Pogues band captured in the blend; produced to their own tastes and rebellion of the norm.


Where To Find It


If you fancy trying out this whiskey, why not pop into Freeney’s Bar on High Street, Galway or O’Connell’s in Eyre Square, Galway and test it out for yourself. Or if you are looking to purchase a bottle, you can pop into us in Oranmore. Bottled at 40% ABV, The Pogues Irish Whiskey carries a RRP of €35.


There is no doubt about it that there will be Streams of Whiskey flowing this month!
