Flying Tumbler Irish Whiskey

Flying Tumbler Whiskey is an independent Irish whiskey bottler from Co Carlow. We custom source whiskey spirit to our specification and then mature, blend and bottle everything ourselves in bond at Carlow Brewing Company. We currently have three bottlings on the market for sale through intendent off trade and online. 

The founders story is one of a return home to do something they are passionate about. Taking inspiration from the Irish flying tumbler, a pigeon with a natural beacon for home. It can fly for days from anywhere in the world to reach the home loft. After years apart, the Walsh boys returned to Ireland and worked with distilling experts to release small batches of independent Irish Whiskey that tell stories of their travels.

"Quirky independent light whiskey blend matured in bourbon & oloroso barrels. Hints of citrus/dried fruits which is quite mellow and a pleasant. Very light burn, not overpowering, I tried it neat but possibly would benefit from a drop of water next time round. Pretty unique scent. Aesthetically it has a nice quirky design which is a departure from the typical Irish Whiskey style and a bottle more similar to Japanese styles with individually inscribed batch numbering on each bottle & tube."

"A solid Irish whiskey, not made like this often enough "

"Light volume-drinking whiskey. Quite soft and citrusy on the nose with floral hints - reminds me of some bourbons. On the palate, there's not much complexity, a bit more grain than malt. Some vanilla and dried fruits but really muted. Very short finish. When it opens up a bit, you get a bit more. It's like putting the volume up a couple of notches. "
