Egan’s, A Sixth-Generation Irish Brand, Unveils Its Most Premium Spirit Yet
NEW YORK, NY (Spirtisman) 9/7/18/—— The esteemed Egan’s Irish Whiskey brand adds new, limited-edition Legacy Reserve to its portfolio of superior handcrafted spirits. The new expression ups the ante on its award-winning predecessors, the 10-Year-Old Single Malt and Vintage Grain, which were successfully introduced to the U.S. markets in 2015 and 2017, respectively. A legacy brand, Egan’s has enjoyed a revival in recent years, thanks in part to the brand’s embodiment of true Irish spirit.
“We’ve been in the whiskey-making business for over a century and a half; that’s six generations of Irish blood in each bottle,” says Jonathan Egan, part of the sixth generation of the Egan Family. “Legacy Reserve is an ultra-premium single malt, about as perfect as an Irish whiskey can get.”
Legacy Reserve is limited to 1,000 bottles worldwide— an exceptionally rare spirit ideally suited for collectors and connoisseurs. Aged for 15 years in American bourbon casks, each bottle is hand-selected by Maurice and Jonathan Egan, whose forefathers Patrick and Henry Egan began the brand six generations ago. An unmistakably Irish Whiskey, this expression advances the category of true single malts with a complex flavor profile and long finish. It boasts a characteristically spicy palate, pairing toffee and vanilla with fruits and citrus, full-bodied while hinting at oaky dryness.
“Legacy Reserve is meant to be had neat or on the rocks — that’s the Irish way, and the only way,” says CEO John Ralph. “We’re a bare-knuckles brand. With this bottle, we’re out to prove that small, thoughtfully produced legacy spirits have a viable place in the global market.”
Egan’s Legacy Reserve is part of the Intrepid Spirits portfolio, and is available in a 750ml bottle for a SRP of $200.00 (46% ABV, 92 Proof).
