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 the runaway 2014 winner of the prestigious Irish Whiskey Award. Aged in bourbon barrels, and finished in first use Oloroso sherry butts.
