CONCANNON IRISH WHISKEY
-Concannon Vineyards, the first Irish-American winery, has teamed up with Ireland’s Cooley Distillery to launch Concannon Irish Whiskey. A blend of malted barley and corn, the whiskey is craft-distilled then matured in bourbon barrels for a minimum of four years. Concannon Petite Sirah wine barrels are transported from California to Ireland, where a portion of the whiskey is then finished for four months before blending. Known as “the Concannon Effect”, this gives the whiskey a uniquely fruity character. Suggested retail price is $24.99 for a 75Oml. Available from Horizon Beverage Company.
