Livermore Valley, Calif.-based Concannon Vineyards has teamed up with Ireland’s Cooley Distillery to launch Concannon Irish whiskey.

A refined blend of malted barley and corn, Concannon is craft distilled for proper balance of character and purity, then matured in bourbon barrels for a minimum of four years. Concannon Petite Sirah wine barrels are transported from California to Ireland, where a portion of the whiskey is then finished for four months before blending. Known as “the Concannon Effect,” this gives Concannon Irish whiskey a uniquely fruity character.
