Kilbeggan is a blend of malt and grain whiskies produced by Cooley distillery and is named after St Bécán, one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland who founded a monastery in the area in the 6th century. Smooth and malty.
Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey first appeared as a John Locke's brand over 100 years ago and was sold successfully until Locke's distillery ceased production in the 1950's. Locke's distillery is the oldest continuously licensed whiskey distillery in the world dating back to 1757.
Drawing on centuries of tradition and craft, Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey is distilled from the purest clear water and the finest malted Irish barley and maize, gently matured for long years in oak casks in the ancient warehouses in Kilbeggan and skilfully blended to create a whiskey of unique smoothness, character and balance.
A double distilled blended whiskey, Kilbeggan manages to be both complex and approachable at the same time, making it the ideal introduction for those exploring the world of Irish whiskey. Its double distillation gives it a robust profile with more character than blends that are triple distilled. Warm and accessible as the people who create it, Kilbeggan is the perfect complement to just about any mixer and can be enjoyed with cola, ginger ale, or soda, or as a stand-alone shot.
