The Pogues launch own Irish whiskey



2015-07-28 10:54:52

A Cork based distillery has teamed up with the Celtic punk band The Pogues to release an Irish whiskey. 

The Shane MacGowen fronted band are originally from London but are heavily influenced by Irish culture and traditional folk Irish music. 

The whiskey has been crafted by distillers Barry Walsh and Frank McHardy and is a blend of grain malt Irish whiskey, which its producers claim make it Ireland’s “highest malt-containing blended Irish whiskey”.

It will be sold in the UK at first with an RRP of £30 but there are hopes of establishing Pogues Irish Whiskey as a global brand.
