Description

The concept for an unique Irish whiskey dedicated to the 69th was the brainchild of Colonel (Ret) James Tierney, a former officer in the system and a Trustee of its non-profit Historical Trust. Having likewise served for 10 years as the 69th Regimental Historian, the idea came to him during one of his sees to Ireland.

“With our strong Irish heritage, members of the 69th are welcomed to Waterford, Ireland each year to take part in the annual Tricolour Celebration, which marks the development in 1848 of the flag that would ultimately become the Irish Republic’s National flag,” explains Tierney. “It’s been my honor to attend the event often and a few years back, while enjoying the festivities with a taste of local whiskey, it occurred to me that the Fighting 69th should have its own Irish whiskey.” Sourced from Irish distilleries, The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is triple distilled in copper pot stills and cask-aged in once-used bourbon and sherry barrels on Ireland’s southern coast.
