Celtic Folk-Punk Party Band The Pogues Launch a New Irish Whiskey

Celtic Folk-Punk Party Band The Pogues Launch a New Irish Whiskey:

Celtic folk-punk legends The Pogues, with songs like “Streams of Whiskey” and an album that translates to “kiss my arse” have gone the distance by now doing up their own brand of firewater.

Sold in the U.K. for £30 (US $47), West Cork Distillers’ The Pogues Irish Whiskey, crafted by distillers Barry Walsh and Frank McHardy, is a blend of grain and 50% single malt, making it Ireland’s highest malt-containing blended Irish Whiskey. That makes sense when the celebrated band is eternally led by party guru wildcard and lead singer Shane MacGowan.

But while The Pogues may have a traditionally older crowd, given that they first kicked up the fun times in ‘82, this brand of Emerald Isle nectar is targeting 25 to 35 year olds.

The booze’s “smooth intensity delivers a palate that is malty and floral with a mild chocolate taste and lingering citrus,“ says a recent press release.

There’s already a plan to move into mainland Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada, and the United States in the next few months. Hope the good lads tour with it.
