Made in Honor
The Quiet Man is equal parts tradition and tribute. It’s carefully crafted from a high malt mash and matured in first-fill bourbon casks. And it’s named after a man who spent his years behind a bar honing the same values we hold today: wisdom, decency and trust. May you find enlightenment in every pour of our humble Irish whiskey.
The Story Behind The Name
Hi, my name’s Ciaran Mulgrew. My father was John Mulgrew. He spent 50 years working as a barman in the pubs of Belfast. Sometimes he took me to work with him. He had this quiet way about him, serving drinks, listening to their stories, making sure everyone felt comfortable to be themselves. People respected him, and I was so proud of him.
As a bartender, he saw a lot of things and heard a lot of stories. But my father would never tell a tale. It was the barman’s code, and he took it seriously.
That’s why when I started making my own whiskey, there was only one person I could name it after: my auld fella, John Mulgrew, The Quiet Man, or as we say in Irish, ‘An Fear Ciuin’.
Over the years, we’ve been honored with awards and medals across the globe; from the USA, Europe, China, and of course, at home in Ireland.
