The Complete Whiskey Course: Irish Whiskey

By Robin Robinson / June 4, 2019

Editor’s Note: We’ve teamed up with whiskey industry expert Robin Robinson, best known for his one-man show The Story of Whiskey, to bring you an occasional video series on whiskey topics. 

“What is Irish Whiskey?  Most people have heard of it and not tasted it and those that have tasted it think it means only one brand: Jameson’s.  But there was a time when Irish whiskey – specifically, Irish Pot Still Whiskey – was the world’s most popular spirit.  We’ll jump into what makes each type specific, what to expect  from each and how we almost lost the entire category.  Get ready, because there’s a huge brown wave of new Irish whiskey ready to hit the shores in the next few years.
