Distilled how many times?

Postby ScotchPalate » Tue Mar 27, 2007 5:15 pm

I know Scotch is distilled twice, save Auschentoshansgloshanboshanfloshan. Irish is distilled 3 times. What about Canadian & American Whiskies (Bourbon & Rye, etc.)?

Sorry SP can't let you away with that sweeping statement :wink:

It is very misleading to say all Irish is tripple distilled but I'm not giving out honest :lol: .

Of course the big 2 do it that way but Cooley has a lot of brands which people mistake in thinking are tripple distilled as well.

Bushmills Distilles 3 times as does Midleton but Cooley only distills twice

Therefore you have of the more well known and available brands

All Bushmills Range in the tripple distilled corner
Brogans 10yo Single Malt
The Irishman single malt

Also

All the Jameson Range
Dunphy's
Greenspot
Merry's
Midleton VR
Murphy's
Paddy's
Power's
Redbreast
Tullamore Dew
Knappogue 1993 & 1994


But Cooley's range is a large one too but only twice distilled.

Clonmel
Michael Collins
Connemara range
Feckin' Irish
Greenore
Kilbeggan
Knappogue 1990-1992
Locke's Range
Magilligan range
Tyrconnell Range
Wild Geese

Further nearly every Irish Whiskey sold as an own brand in super markets and chains is made by Cooley.

There are probably more whiskey brands out there from Cooley than the other 2 put together but in all fairness the sales of Jameson dwarfs all these cooley brands put together.

I've never heard of North American Whiskey being distilled other than twice.
