Looking for The Fighting 69th and want it delivered to your door? You’ve come to the right store. We offer fast delivery with FedEx on all our products. The Fighting 69th has long been proud of its Irish background, and in keeping with that history, we present you with their first Irish Whiskey. Irish whiskey was the most popular spirit in the world in the nineteenth century, and it is still the fastest-growing whiskey category today. This fine whiskey is a fitting tribute to America’s own Irish Brigade and the Irish-American spirit!
It’s distilled and imported from Ireland, and it has a one-of-a-kind mash bill that combines excellent quality barley and malted barley with pure Irish water to create an exceptional Irish Whiskey. Triple-distilled in hand-crafted copper pot stills for maximum vapor and copper interaction. The Fighting 69th Irish whiskey is a one-of-a-kind combination of three distinct distillates that are finished separately.
History of the Fighting 69th Regiment
The Fighting 69th regiment, which was founded with the motto “Gentle when Stroked, Fierce when Provoked,” has deep roots in American and Irish history. This military regiment was founded in 1849 in America and was made up of Irish Americans. Now, in honor of this regiment, the imported Irish whiskey I’m tasting pays tribute to the warriors who fought under its banner and donates a portion of every sale to its namesake.
The whiskey that bears the name is an Irish whiskey that follows the first part of the slogan by offering a gentle and pleasant initiation into the Irish whiskey heritage. It’s made with a keen eye for detail, allowing the consumer to relax and enjoy a buttery beverage with little pretension and a welcoming palate.
80 proof; mash bill of “high quality barley and malted barley combined with clean Irish water;
Appearance: Light blonde in appearance
Nose: The first sniff reveals a trace of banana, followed by a more prominent citrus note. After that, a mellow caramel swoops in to round off a somewhat understated nose.
Palate: This whiskey is pleasant and simple to drink. It has a little warmth that grows into a nice buzz. Their citrus and caramel aromas are nicely balanced in its fruit forward front. The midsection has a soft leathery feel, while the back end has a little taste from a hint of white pepper.

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.
About the Producer: Fighting 69th
Do you recall the year 1849? Unless you're a vampire or Keith Richards, of course you don't. It's the year the 69th Infantry Regiment was created, the one that leads the St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City. The Irish Brigade has served in the Civil War, both World Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and has earned a reputation as one of America's most decorated military organizations. So, where does Whiskey come into play? This one-of-a-kind Irish-American dram hails from Ireland and pays homage to The Fighting 69th's Irish roots.
