The Fighting 69th
Irish Whiskey Set // 2 Bottles + 2 Shot Glasses // 750 ml Each
The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is named for the 69th Infantry Regiment, the U.S. Army unit based in New York City's historical armory on Lexington Avenue between 25th and 26th streets. The Fighting 69th was originally formed in 1849 as an all-Irish militia unit being trained to return to Ireland and fight against the British Crown for independence. The unit was originally part of the famed “Irish Brigade,” which was comprised of units from New York and Massachusetts. The unit is the most decorated in U.S. military history, having fought as a U.S. Army Infantry Regiment in major engagements from the U.S. Civil War, WWI, WWII, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The 69th was the first unit that arrived at the World Trade Center on 9/11, and they are currently assisting with Covid-19 operations in the New York Area. One dollar ($1) from every bottle shipped is donated to the Sixty- Ninth Regiment Historical Trust, Inc., a not-for-profit 501-C-3 that supports the veterans, first responders, gold star families, and operations of the 69th Infantry Regiment.
The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is distilled, aged, and bottled on the southern Irish coast, in accordance with Irish law, and then imported. This whiskey is made from barley, malted-barley, and corn. It is a blend of whiskies that are triple-distilled in copper pot stills, as well as distilled in continuous column stills. The Fighting 69th use nearly 50% barley and malted barley, which is 3-4 times what other Irish blended whiskeys use. The Fighting 69th also age their whiskeys from 4-6 years in a combination of single-char bourbon barrels, double-char bourbon barrels, Port casks, and Oloroso sherry casks.
The nose starts with nuances of apple and pear, balanced with malt, oak, and hints of caramelized Bourbon notes. The palate then moves from the clean apple and pear front notes to the vanilla and caramel from the charred bourbon barrels, rounded out with just a touch of sweetness from the port and sherry casks. The finish is a well balanced whiskey with a hint of cinnamon and sherried honey.
