Discover Conor McGregor Whiskey Proper No. Twelve:
MMA fighter and boxer Conor McGregor entered the ring producing the correct Irish whiskey blend number 12, produced with the help of former Bushmills Distillery Manager David Elder. With malt and grain whiskey made from bourbon hulls, the team produced about 100 blends before choosing the bottled whiskey. Proper No. 12 Irish Whiskey was named after Dublin 12, the area where Conor McGregor grew up in Ireland.
McGregor used the world’s oldest licensed distillery in Ireland and worked with David Elder, a former Guinness master distiller, to create a “unique” spirit “from the waters of St Columbus, which flows through saturated alkaline limestone and basalt on its way to peat sphagnum”. This helps him to acquire “the flavour that has been appreciated for centuries”. Almost 100 blends were developed before the final blend became “the right number 12”, a triple distilled whiskey described as “a well-balanced blend of fine gold grain and single malt whiskey” aged in oak casks.
Bourbon is most often associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, although technically it can be produced anywhere in the United States. Kentucky is traditionally where American bourbon has been produced since the late 18th century. To be considered a bourbon whiskey, the drink must contain at least 51% corn and must be aged in new carbonized white oak barrels. Bourbon whiskey is available in bottles of eighty ABV (40% ABV) or more and cannot contain any color or aroma additives. A versatile alcohol that can be drunk pure, with water or ice, also goes well with cocktails like an Old Fashioned.
Irish Whiskey Varieties
Irish whiskey (Irish: Fuisce or uisce beatha) is a whiskey produced on the island of Ireland. The word "whiskey" (or whiskey) comes from the Irish (or Gaelic) uisce beatha, which means "water of life". Irish whiskey was once the most popular liquor in the world, although a prolonged period of decline from the late 19th century onwards severely damaged the industry, so much so that although Ireland boasted at least 28 distilleries in the 1890s, that number fell by 1966 ... up to two, and in 1972 the remaining distilleries, Bushmills Distillery and Old Midleton Distillery (replaced by New Midleton Distillery), were owned by only one company, the Irish Distillers. The monopoly situation was ended by an academically designed launch of the first distillery in decades, the Cooley distillery, in 1987 . Since the 1990s, Irish whiskey has grown in popularity again and, since 1990, it has been the fastest growing alcoholic beverage in the world. With an annual growth of more than 15% in exports, the existing distilleries have been expanded and several new distilleries have been built. ... In December 2019, there were 32 distilleries operating in Ireland and an increase is planned or under development. However, many did not work long enough to produce locally matured whiskeys for sale, and only two, Bushmills in Northern Ireland and Kilbeggan, were in operation until 1975, the last with a long hiatus.
