Hard Truth Distilling Co. releases first-ever Irish  Whiskey: McCabe’s Irish Whiskey

This exclusive spirit is a tribute to co-founder and executive chairman, Jeff McCabe

Nashville, Ind. – Hard Truth Distilling Co., a distillery located on 325 acres in Southern Indiana,
released their first-ever Irish Whiskey, imported from Ireland. This true Irish Whiskey was
released today and is proofed and bottled in Brown County, Indiana by Hard Truth Distilling Co.

The naming of the Irish Whiskey originates from the clan McCabe, which falls in line with the
family lineage of the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman for Hard Truth Distilling Co., Jeff
McCabe. Clan McCabe, dates back to the year of 1350, when members established themselves
as a powerful Irish dynasty among the hilly countryside of today’s modern counties of Leitrim
and Cavan. Nearly 700 years later, McCabe’s Irish Whiskey is still cultivated from the finest
whiskey stocks in Ireland and honors the family heritage of Hard Truth’s Jeff McCabe.

“I grew up with wonderful stories about the McCabes, including my great grandfather’s journey from Ireland to the United States and the new life he started in Dekalb County, Illinois. My grandmother often told me about the exploits of my grandfather Leo and his brothers, who were first-generation Irish Americans. They knew how to work hard, play hard and live life with gusto,” said McCabe. “There is a special place in my heart for the old neighborhood Irish bars where my father and his kin would shoot pool, share stories and enjoy a pint and a shot or two of Irish Whiskey. That’s what being a McCabe means to me. It evokes a warm feeling, a cherished memory and a joy for living, and that is what I hope people who try McCabe’s Irish Whiskey will experience.”

McCabe’s Irish Whiskey is bottled at 80 proof with 40% ABV. The imported Irish Whiskey is available in 750 ML bottles with a suggested  etail price of $29.95 and will be available at all seven Big Woods locations, Hard Truth Hills and local retailers throughout Indiana.

“As master distiller, maintaining the highest quality standards in practice and the final product is top of mind every day, all day. Adding  his very special Irish Whiskey into the Hard Truth portfolio of spirts was a unique experience for us as the flavors were set in Ireland long before its arrival,” said Bryan Smith, Master Distiller and General Manager at Hard Truth Distilling Co. “This whiskey stands out among its peers and was clearly favored during our review process with unique notes of toasted nuts, honey and sweet malted grain. It is a fine addition to our ever- growing family of spirits at Hard Truth Distilling Co.”

McCabe’s Irish Whiskey has a pale gold appearance with a nose full of cereal grain, dried fruit and honey. The taste is full of toasted grain and malt with hints of pear and caramel, followed by a light finish with notes of dried fruit and spice.

In the coming months, Hard Truth Distilling Co. plans to launch additional products including Hard Truth Distilling Co. Schoonover Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey and a flavored Peanut Butter Whiskey.
