Whiskymerchants: New Page: Clontarf - Knappogue Irish Whiskey

Knappogue  name is from the 15 th century castle in County Clare, Ireland that was bought by Mark Edwin Andrews who with his wife fully  restored the castle during  the 1960s.  He also amassed an impressive and rare collection of pure pot still whiskey  produced at the B. Daly Distillery. When the whiskey reached its peak age, it would be bottled and  named after his beloved Knappogue. 

The last of Mr. Andrews' whiskey, Knappogue Castle 1951, is the  oldest and rarest Irish whiskey in the world. It is still available for purchase by special order from Castle Brands.

Many years  later, Mark Andrews' son would bring Knappogue 1951 and his father's legacy to the market. From his  father’s passion for pot still whiskey and his mother's commitment to restoring the castle, Mark Andrews III has built Knappogue into a global brand. 

Other vintage-dated Knappogue Castle whiskies include  1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995. In 2010 the first Knappogue bottling of the Master Distiller’s  Private Selection 1994 was offered to consumers.
