The Irishman was founded in 1999 by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh, with the company specialising in producing and building innovative, authentic Irish spirit brands. It is based in the heart of Ireland’s barley-growing and malting region, County Carlow. The Irishman whiskey range has won many gold medals at competitions internationally, including one of the highest ratings for any Irish whiskey in Jim Murray’s whisky bible.
The Founder’s Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish pot still whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by founder Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of two styles, single malt (70%) and single pot still (30%). It is the only blended Irish whiskey to be 100% from copper pot stills and is triple distilled and matured in bourbon casks.
