Writers’ Tears Double Oak is a blend of  two premium whiskey styles - Single Pot Still and Single Malt - aged in two types of wood – American and French Oak. It is triple-distilled, non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV (92 Proof). This expression is made possible by a close collaboration between the Walsh family in Ireland’s County Carlow and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.

Writers’ Tears is a unique style of whiskey embedded in Irish history. At a time when Irish whiskey was distilled exclusively in copper pot stills, two styles flourished: Single Malt and Single Pot Still. The marriage of both styles became known as 'The Champagne of Irish Whiskey' and was a style beloved of many of the Irish literary greats of the time. Writers' Tears is a recreation of that fabled 19th century whiskey and a tribute to Ireland's creative past, present and future.

Origins

Writers' Tears is a unique style of whiskey embedded in Irish history. At a time when Irish whiskey was distilled exclusively in copper pots, two styles flourished: Pot Still and Malt; distilled from 100% barley.

This was a style of whiskey liked by many of the Irish literary greats of the time; Joyce, Beckett, Yeats to name a few. It is said that when these writers needed inspiration, they found it in the whiskey glass, and when they cried they cried tears of whiskey. Writers' Tears is an award-winning recreation of the fabled 19th century whiskey and offers a rare taste of Pot Still Irish whiskey, bursting with flavour and complexity.
