Pioneer of Irish Whiskey

Kinahan's History

Founded in 1779, Kinahan’s worldwide recognition came from sourcing unaged whiskey spirit from distillers across Ireland and using an-unconventional approach to maturation, aging & blending to create some of the world’s richest premium whiskey varieties of their time.  Dubbed ”the Pioneer of Irish Whiskey.”

Catching the attention of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in 1807, who famously marked all casks with “L.L.” to ensure they were exclusively for his use.  Kinahan’s would also be awarded Royal Warrants and become the preferred Whiskey of Jerry Thomas “the father of American mixology”, who featured Kinahan’s in The 1862 Bartender’s “Guide on How to Mix Drinks”, which was the first drinks and mixology book ever published in the U.S.

In 2013 Kinahan’s reopened its doors again after 80 years with the sole intention to produce premium expressions of the whiskey that made it a pioneer over two centuries ago. Drawing inspiration from long-lasting heritage and returning to the original pioneering culture, Kinahan’s puts the focus on wood and different maturation methods to  create a collection of exceptional whiskey thru innovation in cask finishing.
