Description

The legend of The Tyrconnell was born in 1876, when R. M. Delamere entered his chestnut colt, Tyrconnell, in the prestigious National Produce Stakes horse race. Fortune found favor with Delamere that afternoon, as Tyrconnell bested horses and oddsmakers alike on his march to victory. The surprise victory captured the imagination of the assembled crowd, which included the Watts, which included A.A. Watt, a local gentlemen distiller. He chose to commemorate the occasion by creating a limited edition, small-batch whiskey that bore the name of their local champion. Although A.A. Watt intended to make The Tyrconnell just once, it ended up becoming Watt’s most popular whiskey. Before Prohibition, The Tyrconnell was claimed to be the best-selling Irish whiskey. Today, the brand is maintained by the Kilbeggan Distilling Company, proud protectors of Irish whiskey-making traditions. Each bottle bears the same commemorative label celebrating Tyrconnell’s triumph.
