Kinahan's Irish whiskey is a brand with a mission that supports a new culture of modern-day pioneers that “do things differently.
As a family company, Kinahan's was founded in 1779, and built it's reputation as the "Original" pioneer of Irish whiskey. Kinahan's was one of the first Irish whiskey brands to use casks for ageing whiskey.
As a result of this, In 1807 the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, insisted that all Kinahan’s casks must have his initials – L.L. on them.
To this day the L.L. mark appears on all our casks, as well as our bottles.
In the 1830s Kinahan’s became the first whiskey brand in the world to receive “Trademark” protection by the Dublin courts.
In the 1860s Jerry Thomas, mentioned Kinahan’s by name, as the ideal choice for Irish whiskey cocktails, in his famous Bartender’s Guide.
Kinahan’s later received Royal Warrants under Queen Victoria and King Edward the 7th.
Today, Kinahan’s is available in over 30 markets worldwide.
Our multi-award winning Heritage Collection respects Kinahan’s past, but our brand background continues to drive us towards pioneering.
In 2019, we unveiled the world’s first, and only, “Hybrid” cask whiskey, known as - The Kasc Project.
These are whiskeys made in “Hybrid” casks, built by hand from 5 different types of wood (one of which is chestnut).
This is a completely new whiskey experience.
Over the years of experimentation, we have also created one of Ireland’s largest collections of unusual single casks for the new generation of whiskey drinkers.
A recent release from this collection was voted Ireland’s Best Single Cask Whiskey by Jim Murray in the 2020 Whiskey Bible.
But, at Kinahan’s we don’t see ourselves only as whiskey makers.
To us whiskey is also a powerhouse for inspiration and change.
As member of Bord Bia’s “Origin Green” programme, we are one of only 320 food and drink companies in Ireland certified for sustainability.
Our major reforestation programme in partnership with Europe’s largest NGO in this field, allows us to replant thousands of rare species of trees.
We also collaborate with world artists and international organisations, merging art with the world of whiskey for the benefit of people in need.
Our recent collaboration is with an organisation founded by (world’s number one chef) Massimo Bottura that is called Food For Soul.
In future, we aim to continue to make our award-winning whiskies to suit both traditional and modern whiskey tastes. But also, looking back to over 240 years of history and innovation behind the Kinahan’s brand today we continue to go beyond whiskey, beyond brands, beyond mere profit.
We look forward to speaking with you as we continue to expand our global distribution.
