Sorry SP can't let you away with that sweeping statement
It is very misleading to say all Irish is tripple distilled but I'm not giving out honest
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
All the Jameson Range
Knappogue 1993 & 1994
But Cooley's range is a large one too but only twice distilled.
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.
