Conor McGregor Whiskey Proper No. Twelve - Item Code: 07626
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.
