Cu Chulainn Irish Whiskey
Cu Chulainn is our premium Irish Whiskey which is an original blend of the finest grain and malted barley. Pronounced ‘’Coo Cullen’’, this brand is a truly traditional Irish which is named after Ireland’s greatest mythological warrior who means as much in Ireland’s history to Irishmen and women as does Hercules to Greeks and Genghis Khan to Mongolians.
Blended and Bottled in small batches by the Cu Chulainn Irish Whiskey Company, a subsidiary of the family owned Terra Ltd, this golden amber coloured Irish Whiskey can be best described as smooth in mouthfeel and easy drinking with background notes of nut, spice, smoke and honey.
Cu Chulainn - The Legend:
Legend has it that circa 1BC, Setanta, the son of the Celtic God of Light “Lugh” was born.
As a young boy, Setanta, who possessed superhuman characteristics, killed the fierce hound guarding the Blacksmith Chulainn’s home in self defense. Feeling remorseful, he took on the role of the hound until a suitable replacement could be found. In doing so, he became forever known as Cu Chulainn meaning “the Hound of Cullen”.
In later years, as a young warrior, he heroically defended Ulster in a war known as the “Cattle raid of Cooley” where, he conquered the opposing army by invoking the right of single combat and defeating warrior after warrior in one on one contests that continued for months. It is on these same grounds of Ulster that this finest Irish Whiskey is blended and bottled following maturation in American Oak bourbon casks.
The result is this exceptionally smooth Irish Whiskey which is full of character, reflecting the legend that is Cu Chulainn.
