Keeper’s Heart is thrilled to announce the release of Keeper’s Heart Irish + Bourbon. The new whiskey from The O’Shaughnessy Distilling Co. is the product of innovation and collaboration among two industry heavyweights, World-renowned Master Distiller Brian Nation and Keeper’s Heart Liquid Collaborator and Adviser David Perkins. The liquid is a blend of the finest Irish and Bourbon whiskeys sourced and brought together to create something entirely new, accentuating the bold and flavorful notes of American whiskey with the smooth and rich character of Irish whiskey
Keeper’s Heart is the first whiskey to blend the best of Irish and American whiskey traditions. The flagship offering, which debuted in 2021, is a blend of Irish Triple Pot distilled whiskey, Irish Grain Whiskey, and American Rye. This new release, permanent addition to the line, is a blend of Triple Pot distilled whiskey, Irish Grain Whiskey, and Bourbon, providing a unique new spin on the American whiskey classic and innovative flavor profile.
Nation joined the O’Shaughnessy Distilling Company to create Keeper’s Heart in 2020. Previously, he had been Master Distiller for Irish whiskeys including Jameson, Redbreast, and Midleton. After meeting with the O’Shaughnessy family, he moved to America to be a part of this new whiskey journey, a whiskey that celebrates American and Irish traditions, and moments worth keeping.
Nation is joined by another industry legend, David Perkins, who founded High West distillery and created several innovative award-winning American whiskeys. As Liquid Collaborator and Adviser, Perkins brings expertise in American whiskey. Together the pair flex their creative and technical muscles to create new offerings such Keeper’s Heart Irish + Bourbon, rooted in experience, innovation, and consumer trends.
Keeper’s Heart Irish + Bourbon is characterized by aromas of rich caramel and baked pecan pie with peppery herbal notes, sweet with vanilla malt and cocoa that delivers a lingering and pleasant, sweet rich wood character.
