The Gael represents the revival of Irish Whiskey Bonding. An international award-winning Irish Whiskey, The Gael is blended from a curated selection of aged Irish single malt and grain whiskeys from the J.J. Corry library of whiskey flavours.
To create The Gael, J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey first sourced excellent quality and very rare matured Irish Whiskey and then set about classifying each cask into a particular flavour block. Finally, the Whiskey Bonders blended each component to create a classic Irish Whiskey, one bursting with juicy fruit flavours and complexity.
The Gael takes its name from a bicycle invented by the namesake and Whiskey Bonder J.J. Corry in the 1890s. J.J. was a keen cyclist and social secretary of the local club and this is a nod to his inventive spirit.
