Walsh Whiskey launches 7 brands in LCBO Whisky Shop

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 4, 2019

A Walsh Whiskey Feature will launch 7 brands in LCBO Whisky Shop on February 7, 2019:

  • Writers’ Tears Red Head
  • Writers’ Tears Copper Pot Cognac Cask Finish
  • Writers’ Tears Cask Strength
  • The Irishman Founder’s Reserve
  • The Irishman Founder’s Reserve Caribbean Cask Finish
  • The Irishman Single Malt
  • The Irishman Cask Strength

Established in 1999, Walsh Whiskey is a producer of the premium triple-distilled Irish craft whiskey brands – The Irishman and Writers’ Tears.

Bernard Walsh, founder, is a farmer’s son from County Tipperary, a landlocked rural area that’s home to mountains, rivers, lakes and farmland.  A mere 100 northeast kilometers away, one can find the town land of Clorusk and within, Royal Oak, a small village in County Carlow and the home of Walsh Distillery (now Royal Oak Distillery)

Bernard and Rosemary Walsh began producing their own independent Irish Whiskey brands in 2007 with the introduction of The Irishman 70 (aka The Irishman Original Clan in the USA) and The Irishman – Single Malt. In 2009 they expanded the portfolio with the introduction Writers Tears, a boutique brand which was created to bring additional nuance to the Irish Whiskey Category.

Recently I was sent a media kit from Woodman Wines & Spirits who represent Walsh Whiskey interests in Ontario. I have decided to publish a timely series of reviews introducing several of Walsh Whiskey Spirits during the LCBO launch and running through to St. Patrick’s Day.

The first review for the The Irishman Founder’s Reserve will publish on Wednesday just before the launch.

    Unfortunately the LCBO will sell these at a ridiculous marked up price. i.e. Writer’s Tears Cask Strength is $70 more than Redbreast 12 Cask Strength at the LCBO.
