Jack Ryan Beggar's Bush 12 Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey (750 ml)
This is the tradition that Thomas Ryan of Toomevara Tipperary, son and grandson of distillery managers and barley farmers, became part of in 1913, when he set up his whiskey finishing hall on Haddington Road, Dublin in 1913, his Ryan’s Malt a city favourite. The eponymous Jack Ryan was his son, and with him, the Ryans’ Finisher’s Touch was well established. Irish Whiskey went through hard times towards the end of the 20th century, but is now coming back into its own. Jack’s son and scion Eunan Ryan revived the family Whiskey finishing with Jack Ryan 12YO, to award-winning effect – Irish Whiskey Awards and San Francisco World Spirits Gold.
