Everyone that travels to the U.K. comes back asking for Paddy's Irish Whiskey, but up until now, it has not been available here in the United States. We have it in stock now at Forsyth, Ballwin and Rock Hill. Missouri only received 30 cases at this point. Only size available is liters. But we have been transitioning most of our 750ml bottles of liquor into liters this year. It is 33% more liquor and a much better price per ounce. Jon our "slogan man" wants us to be the LITER leaders.

Here is some info from their website...
Fresh and lively, aromatic - a complex interplay of nutty maltiness, woodland fragrances and spice, with hints of honey and vanilla.
Mild, soft, a distinctive mellow maltiness, a touch of sweet oil, spiciness - and again those background notes of honey, vanilla, toasted wood.
A sweetness gently fading, mellow maltiness and mild woody notes lingering pleasingly.
Paddy Whiskey is distilled three times from the finest quality barley and water. This ensures a whiskey, which is particularly light, well balanced and pure.Its relatively low pot-still content and uniquely high proportion of malt whiskey, ensures Paddy is 'One of the softest of all Ireland's whiskeys'
Jim Murray, International Whiskey Connoisseur.
During maturation in oak casks stored in dark aromatic warehouses for up to seven years, Paddy whiskey mellows, and takes on it's distinctive rich, golden colour.Two percent of Paddy Whiskey is lost to the atmosphere during maturation. This evaporated whiskey has come to be called 'The Angel's Share'.
The most well known of all the Irish whiskeys is Paddy whiskey. But less well known, is the fact that this delightful whiskey was named after a gregarious sales representative for Cork Distilleries Company called Paddy Flaherty.
Cork Distilleries Company
Cork Distilleries Company was founded in 1877 and had a number of distilling sites in the Cork city area. The distillery used the finest local grown barley and pure water from tributaries of the river Lee to distill world class whiskeys. The walls of the distillery still stand in Cork today in the area known as North Mall. In 1882, a young Patrick J. O’Flaherty joined the Cork Distilleries Company as a traveller. Paddy covered an area stretching from Youghal to Mallow selling the rather unwieldy named ‘Cork Distilleries Company Old Irish Whiskey’.
