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

A refined blend of malt and grain whiskeys, Concannon Irish whiskey is craft distilled for proper balance of character and purity, then matured in a combination of bourbon barrels and Concannon Petite Sirah wine barrels — transported from California to Ireland — for a minimum of four years. Known as the “Concannon Effect,” aging in the wine barrels gives Concannon Irish whiskey a uniquely fruity character.
