honouring six generations 

In 1852 Patrick Egan Sr established P&H Egan Ltd in Tullamore, County Offaly, the beating heart of 19th century Ireland. This spirited enterprise quickly became one of Ireland’s foremost merchant houses, spanning a range of commercial endeavours that included malting, brewing and bottling. Today the Egan legacy and time honoured traditions are carried forward by a family with Irish Whiskey in their blood. Six generations in the making, this charismatic Ten Year Old Single Malt was carefully selected by members of the Egan family and proudly represents over 160 years of family heritage.

CRAFT IN THE BLOOD

It was at the turn of the 20th century when the family business of P.&H. Egan was most successful with branch offices throughout the midlands of Ireland. P.&H. Egan were considered one of the “Three Great Businesses of Tullamore”, alongside D.E. Williams and  B. Daly. During this period they were involved in many sides of the industry including brewing, bottling, malting and importing.

high praise


“Amber like colour, delicate aroma with a light hint of smoke. Malty and creamy , with complex hints of cereal  and a smooth  silkiness. Big finish and what appears to be an endless aftertaste.”

– John C. Mc Dougall, Independent Whiskey Consultant

Egan's Charms the Judges


“The longer you allow it to breath and fully oxygenate in the glass, the more of its engaging aromas will come forward. Egan’s has a slightly warm entry that quickly expands, filling the mouth with flavors of honey, malt, cranberries, apples and a bevy of baking spices.”

– Robert Plotkin, Judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition

EGANS SINGLE MALT IRISH WHISKEY

While bourbon and Scotch get more press, Irish whiskeys have quietly become the fastest growing, barrel-aged spirit in America. They're accessible, highly aromatic and loaded with an abundance of palate pleasing flavors. In addition, years of steadily increasing popularity have not significantly driven up their price, thus keeping them relative bargains.

Among the brands fanning the category’s popularity is recent arrival EGAN’S SINGLE MALT IRISH WHISKEY. Although new to the U.S. market, the whiskey can hardly be referred to as an overnight success. It actually represents a legacy of nearly 160 years. The founders established their firm on Bridge Street in the heart of Tullamore, County Offaly.

“For our initial foray into the American market we’ve selected a single malt that’s been barrel-aged for 10 years and bottled at 47% alcohol (94 proof),” says Jonathan Egan, 6th generation owner. “We firmly believe it to be one of the finest Irish single malts on the market. After a few minutes left alone with our whiskey, we’re confident that malt enthusiasts and aficionados will become lifelong fans.”

While I can’t speak for others, I’m convinced he’s right. The Egan’s Single Malt is bottled non-chill filtered, which leaves it unaltered and in full possession of its character. The whiskey has a fetching golden/amber appearance, a light, silky textured body and a generous fruit and malt bouquet. The longer you allow it to breath and fully oxygenate in the glass, the more of its engaging aromas will come forward. Egan’s has a slightly warm entry that quickly expands, filling the mouth with flavors of honey, malt, cranberries, apples and a bevy of baking spices. The long, dry finish reveals the added flavors of caramel and baking spices. With a price tag of under $50, it’s a virtual steal. Kudos
