Prize Fight Irish Whiskey

an irish whiskey distilled & aged in ireland, and finished in american rye casks.


When Irishman Flor Prendergast decided to create a whiskey, he brought in his American friend and spirits maverick, Steven Grasse. Grasse envisioned a collaboration between two craft distilleries — one in Ireland, the other in America. So they reached out to West Cork Distillers and Grasse’s own Tamworth Distilling in the U.S.A. to create an Irish whiskey finished in American rye barrels.

The Irish-American connection inspired the name “Prizefight”, a whiskey brand based on telling the incredible stories of the Irish who came to America and became the greatest fighters of their day.

About


Prizefight is a collaborative Irish whiskey, distilled and aged in Ireland, and finished in American rye casks. The result is incredibly complex whiskey, a smooth and mellow spirit that packs a punch but never burns.

Tasting Notes: Fresh and clean with fruit, floral, and spice notes. Sweet and refreshing up front, followed by a subtle hint of bitterness and a spicy finish.

 

History

boston corners, new York | october 12, 1853

Yankee Sullivan is 40 years old and stands five feet seven inches. John Morrissey is only 22, and a half-foot taller. In front of five thousand spectators, they met knuckle to knuckle in a makeshift ring in Boston Corners, an abandoned brickyard just outside police jurisdiction. Quick and nimble, Sullivan outpunches Morrissey five to one, but Morrissey hits like a freight train. After thirty-seven rounds, Morrissey grabs Sullivan by the neck and lifts him off his feet. As fans swarm the ring, Sullivan swings and knocks Morrissey out cold, but Morrissey is still named the winner, as Sullivan failed to come up to the scratch.
