Walsh Whiskey announced the release of a new addition to its portfolio: Writers’ Tears – Single Pot Still.

Originally matured in bourbon barrels, the triple-distilled, single pot still whiskey, was then further matured in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks from Spain and Florio Marsala Hogsheads from Sicily, before being cut at 46% ABV.

Walsh Whiskey founder Bernard Walsh’s creative process begins with sourcing whiskeys to his exacting specifications. He then augments the spirits through blending and finishing in special and elusive casks, honoring old styles, and creating new ones in the process. Walsh Whiskey plans to extend its exceptional portfolio gradually over time, continuing to build carefully in a way that honors the super-premium positioning of both its ranges, which Bernard believes is key to the future success of the Irish whiskey category.

In February and March, some 3,000 bottles of Writers’ Tears – Single Pot Still will be made available to the United States, retailing for $79.99. The states the whiskey will be available include: CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, IN, MA, MD, MN, MO, NJ, NY, TX, WA, WI.

Established in 1999, and part of the Amber Beverage Group (www.amberbev.com) since 2021, Walsh Whiskey is based in Carlow, Southwest of Dublin, Ireland. Its portfolio of more than 20 whiskeys is distributed by San Francisco-based Hotaling & Co.
