Patrick Egan, a solicitor from Moate, descended from very old Westmeath stock. His forbearers fought at the famous Battle of the Boyne, in 1690, and again at Aughrim, in 1691. Two of three Egan sons were killed in battle and the third was withdrawn from his priestly studies to preserve the family name. This is the backdrop to a fascinating legacy that lives to this day.
Casked in American oak bourbon barrels for a minimum of eight years, this Single Grain Irish Whiskey was meticulously hand-selected by Jonathan V. Egan, the sixth generation of a family with whiskey in their blood.
Egan’s Vintage Grain is an exceptionally smooth and characterful Single Grain Irish Whiskey, brimming with charming sweetness and warm spices. It is a celebration of the extraordinary industry and endeavor of our forefathers and their passion for the craft of malting, brewing and bottling.
Egan's Vintage Grain's lighter style compares very favorably to its heavier Pot Still and Single Malt cousins. It lends itself perfectly to making a craft cocktail, with a simple mix, sipped neat or on the rocks.
