The Fighting 69th Regiment Irish Whiskey


The storied "Irish Brigade" Regiment, one of the oldest and most honored military units in the history of the United States, is proud to present its first Irish Whiskey to America.


Founded in 1849 as a New York State Irish Militia, the 69th has fought as a U.S. Army Infantry Regiment in major engagements from the Civil War to modern day Iraq and Afghanistan.  Its Armory is located in New York City on Lexington Avenue between East 25th and 26th Streets.

This unique mash bill combines the finest malted barley fermented and distilled with pure Irish water, resulting in a fine Irish Whiskey that evokes the motto of the Fighting 69th, "Gentle when stroked, fierce when provoked."

What People Say About Us

"Great selection and great customer service. I finally found my favorite gin there (Nordes from the North of Spain). Very knowledgeable people who always have the time to help (even bringing the bag out to the curb for me!)
Highly recommend."

Sandy LaBelle

"This is absolutely my favorite wine and liquor store. Karen, the owner, goes out of her way to get a wine I have tasted or would like to taste. She is very knowledgeable and gets to know her customers so well that her recommendations to try something new are spot on."

Dina Cuomo

"My husband and I stopped in while visiting my family over Christmas and managed to swing a tasting of some local whiskeys and we were so impressed by the fellow's knowledge of what he was serving. I'm finishing the last of the rye tonight and have made a mental note to get more. Next time we are in the area, we will be sure to stop in and try something new."

Sara Ewen

"Far and away, the best wine retailer in Columbia County. Wine selections sensitively and knowledgeably curated. What a gift!"
