Walsh Whiskey is a family business dedicated to the revival of Irish whiskey as one of the world’s most appreciated spirits. Established by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh in 1999, the company is on the mission of creating contemporary innovations and expressions for the new era, using the backdrop of timeworn recipes from Ireland’s golden era of whiskey distilling. Living up to the Walsh family motto of ‘Never Say Die’, the creative and forward thinking couple are on a life-journey of exploration to make the most perfect drop or Taoscán [Tash-cawn] as they say in Ireland. Their exclusively premium and super-premium, triple-distilled, award winning craft Irish whiskeys are both critically acclaimed and internationally adored.
Walsh Whiskey works with a range of carefully selected partners to explore how different grains, whiskey styles and woods interact and contribute to taste over time, and seeks-out the best styles and distillates in Ireland. When cask-hunting in all four corners of the world, they look for those of the highest wood quality and barrel structure and, most importantly, the ones that have been seasoned with exceptional liquid. Both their brands – Writers’ Tears and The Irishman – offer unique taste profiles through the recreation of traditional Irish whiskey recipes from the 19th Century. While honoring the past, Bernard and Rosemary also introduce truly innovative new expressions for contemporary palates.
The Irishman Founder's Reserve is Bernard Walsh’s unique take on the old Irish pot still whiskey.

The proportions used are 70% single malt and 30% single pot still, with no grain whiskey present, which makes for a much more flavorsome whiskey.
