Irish Distillers records A Story of Irish Whiskey podcast

24th May, 2019 by Owen Bellwood

Jameson owner Irish Distillers has become the latest drinks producer to launch a podcast, titled A Story of Irish Whiskey.

The five-part A Story of Irish Whiskey podcast details the highs and lows of Irish whiskey

Produced by Last Cast Media, the five-part podcast series tells the story of how the Jameson, Powers and Murphy families came together in 1966 to transform the fortunes of the Irish whiskey industry.

The podcast details the highs and lows of the category throughout the 20th and 21st centuries through a mix of interviews, archive recordings and “dramatic” recreation.

Conor McQuaid, CEO and chairman of Irish Distillers, said: “At our core, we believe that Irish Distillers exists to bring people together, be that through the growth of the Irish whiskey category, the experiences we create at our brand homes in Dublin and Midleton, or the simple enjoyment of our portfolio of whiskeys around the world.

“From the moment three whiskey families came together in 1966, we have been working hard to sustain and grow an industry that is inextricably linked to our Irish heritage. Everything that we do is driven by a desire to see the continued growth of Irish whiskey on the world stage, and today Irish whiskey has more fans and made more connections than at any other point since the 19th century.

“We believe that now is the time to tell the story of Irish whiskey to an ever-growing audience and further promote the reputation of one of Ireland’s most iconic exports.”

The podcast features commentary from guests including Kristen, Tara and Andrea Jameson, and Charles C O’Reilly (who descended from John Power) and master distiller emeritus at Irish Distillers, Barry Crockett.

Episodes are available to download now on Audioboom, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, Castbox and Radio Public.

The release of A Story of Irish Whiskey follows the launch of podcasts created by Jack Daniel’s, Our/Vodka and New Amsterdam vodka.
