Writer's Tears Copper Pot Whiskey

19th and early 20th century Ireland was a golden era both for Irish whiskey for great Irish novelists, poets and playwrights including George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, James Joyce, and Bram Stoker. Many of these great writers 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 that 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.
