A Podcast on the history of distilling whiskey in Ireland

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

A Podcast on the history of distilling whiskey in Ireland

Postby stephenkentucky » Sun Oct 07, 2012 10:44 pm

Here is a link to a podcast which was first aired on the ABC ( Australia ) it relates to the history of whiskey distilling in Ireland and covers the rise of the plated still in the form of the Coffey Patent still ( Aeneas Coffey)
I found it really interesting...I hope you enjoy it.

link don't work :doh:
May your glass be ever full,
May the roof over your head be always strong,
And may you be half an hour in heaven,
Before the devil knows you're dead.

Slightly off topic :roll: ...but for any of you that 'file share' (aka: torrenting) there is a very enjoyable film out there called 'Poteen Making'.

You'll need to search using the term 'Poitin' (hint: try The Pirate Bay). Not many seeders but it'll download eventually :wink:

Well worth a watch, IMHO.

Thanks Jag, VERY informative video! Should be watched by all. There's things in there about the first cut, luting, and dilution that many have never seen before. Quite different from what we 'assume' is the go.

Here's the torrent link...it's clean. You'll need a prog like BitTorrent to d/l the movie though.

And we're still on topic...distilling whiskey in Ireland.

Hi Harry,
Glad you enjoyed the vid!

I didn't want to post a direct link for two reasons... a] the, ahem, legality issue :roll: & b] that particular url might not work for some (e.g. The Pirate Bay is blocked by most of the larger UK ISP's :( ...but there are ways around that :wink:).

Sláinte!

I've enjoyed both the radio and that video. Was good to see the old ways with someone who's obviously well practised, even the small things like removing some of the peat\turf to reduce the heat as he removed the heads was fun to see. But man, it looks like they had to work hard for it.
