This is a story of things lost and found: specifically, two once-illustrious names that fade from view, and have been restored.
And then, years later, they are found. Stills return to life. The barrels fill. And, once again, glasses are raised.
Individually, Kirker and Greer were already distilling families of distinction. And when they came together, they became truly formidable, producing millions of gallons of Irish whiskey a year by the turn of the 20th century. Fleets of river barges brought cargo-loads of barley to their mighty distillery, then ferried the barrels of mature whiskey out to ships waiting impatiently in Belfast lough. This expression of the finest grain and malt Irish whiskey is rested in seasoned bourbon casks and blended to perfection.
Beautifully balanced touches of caramel and honey married with peppery spice and vanilla oak.
