Writers’ Tears turn Gold

Writers' Tears Copper Pot Irish Whiskey was awarded a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. 

Triple-distilled, non-peated, matured and aged in American Oak bourbon casks, Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot is a vatting of Aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt whiskey, without any Grain whiskey from Walsh Whiskey Distillery. This style of whiskey was known as ‘The Champagne of Whiskey’ when first fashioned in Ireland in the 1800s.

“This award is timely coming in a year when we are more than doubling our distribution of Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot to 40 of the United States in what is the world’s largest market for Irish whiskey,” commented John Kelly, Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s Commercial Director,

Single Pot Still is a style of whiskey unique to Ireland. Made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, it’s noted for being spicier and more viscous in texture due to the unmalted barley.

Writers’ Tears – Copper Pot is one of the highest-rated Irish Whiskeys in Jim Murray’s Iconic Whiskey Bible and is also included in Ian Buxton’s publication 101 Whiskeys to try before you die.
