In 1776, John and James McConnell opened their Belfast distillery where they crafted the first recorded Irish Whisky brand. McConnell's Irish Whisky was a popular export worldwide, including America, where it became popular from New York to California. However, due to Prohibition and Wars around the world, the impact was too much and the distillery was closed in the 1930s.

Today, the legendary McConnell's Irish Whisky is now restored to bar rooms and saloons from Belfast to Boston! Aged 5 years, our fine blend of Irish Malt and Irish Grain Whisky is gently rested in Select Bourbon Casks bringing out beautiful overtones of vanilla sweetness with the quality of Irish in the background. This perfect blend between malted barely & grain has been carefully tried and tested resulting in a new finish to the iconic brand.

Origins

The original home of the iconic brand was at Cromac Distillery, which produced whisky until it closed its doors in 1930. Its fair to say the brand had its fair share of troubles over the 150 years of production, with fires blazing through the old distillery in 1907, a fire broke out in the mill, destroying over 50 ronnes of malt. In 1909, the largest fire recorded in the distillery's history broke out, losing 500,000 litres of whisky. The Cromac site bottle McConnell's Irish Whisky, and Old Cro Irish Whisky Liqueur.
