P&H Egan Ltd. is reviving its historic Egan’s Irish whiskey, representing 160 years of Egan family heritage. The brand is launching in select U.S. cities this fall with its first expression, Egan’s 10-year-old Single Malt.
Egan’s Irish Whiskey dates back to 1852, when Patrick and Henry Egan founded P&H Egan. Over the next 116 years of operation, P&H Egan was involved in numerous commercial enterprises, the company says, including bottling, malting, brewing, wholesaling, importing and exporting, before an inability to compete with multinationals caused P&H Egan to voluntarily close its doors in 1968.
While the Egan family business was no longer in operation, the Egan spirit lived on through the family’s descendants. Maurice and Jonathan Egan, fifth and sixth generation Egan’s, alongside longtime family friend and industry expert, John Ralph, are revitalizing the company to carry on the traditions of the family.
Egan’s 10-year-old Single Malt is 100% pot-still Irish whiskey aged for 10 years in oak casks before being selected by the Egan family and approved to bear the family name. Egan’s is non-chill filtered, allowing character to be retained from the casks in which it is aged.
Egan’s 10 Year Old Single Malt will be available in the U.S. in October in Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and California, with a suggested retail price of $49.99.
