With its triple-distilled process, non-chill filtered, and no added color, Portmagee Small Batch Irish Whiskey sets itself apart from the rest. The whiskey is single cask finished in Barbados Rum Casks to pay homage to Captain Theobald MacGhee (Magee), the 17th-century Irish transatlantic smuggler who founded Portmagee in 1691. Captain MacGhee, also known as Magee, smuggled rum into Ireland from Barbados and smuggled Irish Whiskey across the Atlantic in the rum casks. His party trick when smuggling whiskey was to skilfully drive his ship’s keel up along the flat rocks for a swift unloading of the smuggled whiskeys. Hence, Magee on the Rocks.

The Magee on the Rocks cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy this delightful Irish whiskey. The smooth and sophisticated flavor of Portmagee Irish Whiskey combines perfectly with the cocktail’s simple, yet elegant, recipe with it’s long and refreshing Barbados Rum Cask finish.
