Irish Whiskey

Jack Ryan

In the 1820’s, Tipperary man John Ryan worked in Limerick Distillery (Walker’s). His brother Michael, managed Birch’s Roscrea and supplied barley from the nearby home farm in Toomevara. His son Thomas, set off for Dublin in the mid 1890’s, and after a long vintner’s apprenticeship, started independent sourcing and finishing of the finest of Irish single malt, culminating in Ryan’s Malt (supplied around the city and in his own pubs, starting with the first – the iconic Beggars Bush on Haddington Road Dublin – bought in 1913 and still in the family). Jack honed the craft further, till the near demise of Irish whiskey brought a hiatus. Eunan Ryan revived the family tradition in 2013.

The anchor whiskey of Jack Ryan Whiskey Company.

The Ryans are whiskey finishers, in their 6th generation. They source fine aged malt and craft small batch finishes in their finishing hall in Dublin, using a growing repertory of casks – eclectic, classic and innovative.
