Take the dare and try a new Irish whiskey that just hit the market because, damn, is it good!

Triple Dog Irish Whiskey bottles

Created by Dan O’Shevlin, a whiskey aficionado with a background in biochemistry, this spirit celebrates daring individuality and a unique taste profile that is sure to appeal to a new generation of whiskey lovers.

The idea for Triple Dog Irish Whiskey was born in a small Dublin pub, where a group of whiskey makers was passionately debating how to make traditional Irish whiskey more appealing to the next generation of whiskey drinkers. The conversation escalated, leading to the ultimate of pub challenges: the formidable “Triple Dog Dare.” O’Shevlin, taking on the challenge, created a new breed of Irish whiskey that is aptly named Triple Dog.

Triple Dog Irish Whiskey consists of O’Shevlin’s proprietary blend of whiskey created with the original 1916 formula and refined with contemporary distillation techniques. It is distilled in Dundalk, County Louth, a coastal county on the Irish Sea that has a heritage of making proper Irish whiskeys dating back to 1708. With access to the purest water from the nearby Cooley Mountains and generations of local whiskey artisans, O’Shevlin tirelessly honed batch after batch until the final blend of Triple Dog was perfected.

Triple Dog Irish Whiskey is made from a blend of the finest Irish malted and unmalted grains, triple-distilled in copper pot and copper column stills. This deliciously distinctive whiskey is bottled at 40% ABV / 80 proof, making it an incredibly approachable whiskey to drink neat, over ice, or in a cocktail. It has a sweet aroma of toasted caramel, and a rich palette of crème brûlée, honey, and cracked vanilla bean, followed by a defined citrus finish. Each bottle contains a spirit aged at least five years in French oak casks.
