Writers Tears is named for the esteemed Irish writers and playwrights of the 19th century who sought inspiration and comfort in their local watering holes. The whiskey is produced using the same methods as original 19th Century Irish distillers, a blend of triple distilled malt and pot still whiskey. Both of those types are made solely in copper pot stills, and all the whiskey is matured in ex-bourbon barrels.
Chosen as Best Blended Whiskey at the Irish Whiskey Awards, Writer’s Tears is also a gold medal winner at the International Spirits Challenge in London and one of the highest-rated Irish whiskies in Jim Murray’s Iconic Whiskey Bible. Murray described it as, “Altogether a very unusual Irish whiskey, a throwback to the last century where spiced pure pot still whiskey was married with floral single malt.” It has also been added to Ian Buxton’s publication 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die.
Writers Tears is currently available in NY, PA, MN, DC and MA for a suggested retail price of $40.
