McCabe’s Irish Whiskey

The origin of clan McCabe — named for its elaborate headgear, “Caba” — dates back to the year 1350, when clan members traveled from Scotland to Ireland as mercenaries, or gallowglasses, to fight for warring Irish chiefs.

Shortly after their arrival, the McCabes established themselves as a powerful Irish dynasty among the hilly countrysides of today’s modern counties of Leitrim and Cavan. These Scotch-Irish mercenaries shared not only a zest for life, but also a common tradition in celebrating it with great whiskey.

Nearly 700 years later, McCabe’s is as passionate of our origins as we are of our legendary Irish whiskey. Each bottle is cultivated from the finest Irish whiskey stocks, all as proud as our family name.

McCabe’s Irish Whiskey holds true to its name — pot-distilled in Ireland,  hallmarked by a light golden color, and imbued with the essences of the malt and grains with which it is crafted, this carefully sourced, true Irish whiskey is proofed and bottled in Brown County, Indiana by Hard Truth Distilling Co.

McCabe’s Irish Whiskey is best enjoyed as you most prefer consuming a delicious, pot-distilled whiskey. Whether it’s neat, over ice, or mixed with ginger sodas, McCabe’s is a classic not to be missed.
