Spirit Type: Irish Whiskey Whiskey/Whisky
In 1913, Thomas Ryan bought the Beggars Bush pub (it's still in the family), the first in a string of Dublin pubs. He sourced, finished, bottled and sold his own whiskeys. Ryan's malt became the customer favorite and local legend. The family's 2013 revival - Jack Ryan 12 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey - was runaway 2014 winner of prestigious the Irish Whiskey Award.
