Great selection of Irish Whiskeys

 “Irish whiskey is so easily drinkable and so approachable,”  F. Paul Pacult of  The Spirit Journal  explains the growing appeal of Irish Whiskey, describing it as "solid and well made, and it offers tremendous taste and approachability”. He adds that it is complex and distinctive enough to satisfy connoisseurs, yet gentle enough for newcomers to the spirit. 

An 'A to Z! about Irish Whiskey Whiskey, like Guinness, is wrapped up in the magical tradition and folklore that makes Ireland so attractive to its visitors from overseas. Singing, music, folk tales and socializing in pubs are completely intertwined. No wonder then, that whiskey, being symbolic of the country itself, takes its name from the term  ‘Uisce Beatha’  meaning ‘Water of Life’.

In Scotland tourists are constantly on the whisky-trails and this is a major part of the Caledonian magnetism. In Ireland, the Jameson Whiskey Corner, and the Kilbeggan Museum, not to mention the compulsory visit to the Bushmills Distillery are now enormously popular with tourists and locals alike and with the increasing number of distilleries entering the Irish market (there will be 8 operational distilleries in Ireland in 2014) it is safe to assume that Uisce Beatha and its production will be playing an increasingly important role in the tourism of Ireland in years to come.

An 'A to Z! about Irish Whiskey It seemed to us to be a logical step, in the creation of our "home from home" to have this whiskey culture and tradition represented in the country that has adopted the Irish Pub concept quicker than anywhere else. A conscious decision was made not to sell Scottish whisky —not out of any particular patriotism—but rather because people tend to order what they know and Irish whiskey has unfortunately tended to play second fiddle to its Celtic cousin as far as marketing on the European market is concerned. Even our Irish guests are sometimes astounded at the range of Irish whiskey available and we are always delighted to be able to introduce the lesser known brands to you. We at the Irish Rover aim to have as many Irish whiskey products available for you to sample in the very pub atmosphere for which they were made.

New to the Irish Rover: Whiskey Tasting Trays. We have put together four different trays, each with three whiskeys for you to try. Relax with your tray, taste the whiskeys, make notes about our experiences. When you are finished, we will give you the tasting notes of the professionals, so that you can see how you compare. 
Some whiskeys in our selection are either limited edition or demand can create a delay in deliveries to the German market. They may not always be in stock. Click here to view our whiskey list.
A book and leaflets of whiskey tasting notes are available behind the bar. Notes are taken from "The Whiskeys of Ireland" by Peter Mulryan,which we highly recommend.
