Ballyhoo Irish Whiskey is a hand-bottled at Connacht’s distillery in the rugged west of Ireland. Ballyhoo begins as a sourced Irish whiskey with a mash bill of 93% corn imported from France and 7% malted barley that they bring to their distillery to further age and finish in used port barrels. This second step softens the grain whiskey and rounds out the flavour into an easy sipper. They do not add artificial colour or caramel, so the product remains quite light in appearance, but with some reddish undertones from the port.
