Tales and tastes of Kilbeggan, Connemara and The Tyrconnell

May 30, 2019


Irish whiskey has an incredible history – a history that mirrors that of Ireland itself. Nowhere is that more visible than through iconic and historic Irish whiskey brands such as The Tyrconnell and Kilbeggan.

I was lucky enough to spend some time in New York recently with Beam Suntory Irish Whiskey portfolio brand ambassador Janice Snowden who walked us through the tales and tastes of these amazing whiskey brands and their sister brand Connemara.

The Kilbeggan and Cooley Distillery where these brands are distilled have played a vital role in the Irish whiskey industry of the distant past and indeed of the more recent past and if it wasn’t for the vision of believers in the Irish whiskey category, we wouldn’t have anything to report on today. Enjoy!
