The Tullamore Distillery was founded in Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland, by Michael Molloy in 1829. The initials of a later owner, one Daniel E. Williams (D.E.W.), helped give this legendary Irish whiskey the name "Tullamore Dew" and the slogan "Give every man his Dew".

The name Tullamore comes from the Irish Tulach Mhór which means "big hill." Tulach Mhór lies in the heart of Ireland's premier grain growing region, which provides the finest barley and the purest water for this exquisite whiskey.

After Molloy's death in 1887, the distillery passed to the Daly family and then to Daniel E. Williams, who was to have a major influence on its development. During the heyday of Irish whiskey, Tullamore Dew stood in the front rank and was well-established in the United States and several European countries, including Germany, France and Denmark.

Cantrell & Cochrane own the rights to Tullamore Dew today. The company continues to ensure that people the world over can enjoy one of Ireland's greatest whiskeys. Tullamore Dew continues to live up to its illustrious heritage with more than 2,500,000 bottles sold in over 80 countries every year.

Malt barley and the way in which it is distilled are what give Tullamore Dew its distinctive flavor. The malt barley is dried without any open fire or peat smoke to create a smooth, mild taste. The whiskey is then distilled three times to ensure purity and smoothness. Time is key to the magic that is Tullamore Dew. The whiskey is left to mature in aromatic oaken casks for at least four years.

Blending is the last stage before bottling. Malt, non-malt and grain whiskeys are blended by a master distiller who, guided solely by his own nose, scrupulously selects his casks to ensure a perfect consistency of taste.

Tullamore Dew is pale amber in color with an orange tinge. The aroma is a mild blend of lemony, malty and spicy notes with charred wooden undertones. The body is soft, buttery and rounded on the palate. You can feel those warming, sweet spices and that pleasant maltiness with a hint of toasted wood. The final taste is smooth and gentle.

Tullamore Dew 12-year-old blend is the top of the range of this renowned Irish whiskey. This product has been maturated for 12 years in casks that previously held bourbon and sherry. Tullamore Dew 12-year-old blend is a perfectly balanced amber mixture with a gentle sweet and spicy taste.

Experts rate Tullamore Dew as an easy-to-drink whiskey with a subtle taste that has a pleasant maltiness. This appraisal holds true whether you drink Tullamore Dew neat so as to savor its full, rich taste and aroma, with water as the Irish do, or on the rocks. Tullamore Dew can be used to make Irish coffee and other hot drinks and it is an ideal base for many other tasty drinks and cocktails.
