Kinahans 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey - Spirits Worth Raising

Kinahans 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Founded in 1779 on the famous Trinity Street in Dublin, Kinahans Irish Whiskey soon attracted the attention of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, so much so that the Lord Lieutenant ordered several barrels of Kinahans to be kept exclusively for himself. As a result, each cask designated for the Lord Lieutenant came to be marked with an "L.L.".By 1845, the whiskey had received its first royal warrant and was so popular (and imitated), that it became the very first whiskey to be trademarked. By the mid-19th century, Kinahans L.L. whiskey came to the attention of many American connoisseurs, including Jerry Thomas, "the father of American mixology." In his 1862 classic, Jerry Thomas Bartender Guide, Thomas recommended the use of Kinahans over any other whiskey.The Irish whiskey industry experienced a sharp decline in the early 20th century, and the Kinahan family decided to take a break from production. A century later, in 2014, Kinahans Irish Whiskey reopened its doors on Trinity Street with the sole purpose of bringing back "a forgotten Irish whiskey".Kinahans 10 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey is matured exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels for a minimum of 10 years.
