      Distiller Notes

      San Franciso World Spirits Competition Gold 2019

      Dashes of sweet vanilla, cinnamon, plum and poached pear on the nose, with flavors of pressed grapes and citrus zest. The finish shows chocolate undertones and a lingering spice.

      Writers' Tears, Irish
      Writers' Tears Winery Image


      19th and early 20th century Ireland was a golden era both for Irish whiskey and, perhaps coincidentally, for great Irish novelists, poets and playwrights. Ireland was then the leading whiskey producing nation in the world and the birthplace of literary giants of the era including writers such as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and Bram Stoker, to name but a few. Many of these great writers, on occasion would take refuge in their local public house, where they could draw inspiration from their daily observations of life while enjoying the comfort of their favorite dram of whiskey.

      At this time, one whiskey blend was held high above all others. Known as the ‘champagne of Irish whiskey’ it was a master blend of pot still and malt whiskeys, both distilled in copper pots. It was enjoyed by many of the great Irish writers of the day… of course less for its inspirational qualities than its full bodied, flavorsome taste and creamy texture! It was said that they enjoyed it so much, that when they cried their tears were of whiskey.

      Writers’ Tears is a critically acclaimed, award-winning recreation of that fabled 19th century style of whiskey. A truly unique expression that is embedded in history. We have since added a Single Malt and Cask Strength expressions to the Writers’ Tears range. We hope you enjoy them… literally!

      The result of an historically prohibitive tax placed on malted barley by the English crown, Irish Whiskey is most often produced from a combination of un-malted barley and other grains. Whereas most other Whiskeys are twice distilled, Irish Whiskeys are distilled three times in a column still and must mature in oak barrels for a minimum of three years. These intricate production steps combine to make them lighter, smoother and more approachable than other styles.
