Whisky is a passion to explore. From the history of the spirit to the evolution of the industry, the story of whisky helps fuel that passion. Often, it’s easy to forget that whisky is also a global multibillion dollar industry. The stories of whisky — from news and new releases to in-depth inquires and what goes on behind the label — blend together to help us appreciate the spirit of whisky.
February 5, 2015 – Beam Suntory and Maxxium Travel Retail are making the Kilbeggan 8-year-old single grain Irish whiskey available in European travel retail outlets for the first time. The move also completes a rebranding for the single grain whiskies produced at Beam Suntory’s Cooley Distillery, which had previously been sold under the Greenore brand name.
Kilbeggan’s 8-year-old is made from 100% corn, matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, and bottled at 40% ABV. No pricing details were announced.
