The Number One selling Irish whiskey in Ireland, Powers Irish Whiskey has become “the father of all Irish Whiskeys” through a tradition based on over 200 years of distilling whiskey. Powers is distinctive for its warm and full-bodied flavor, an explosive mixture of spices, which linger on the tongue.
The Powers flavor is the product of the whiskey’s triple distillation in both old-fashioned copper pots and column stills. Powers is aged 100 percent in Bourbon casks for five to six years. A past recipient of The American Taste Award for Excellence and a Double Gold winner in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Powers is touted as the perfect whiskey for the best-tasting Irish Coffee.
