In 1889, Capt. Thomas Armstrong Drought, the High Sherriff of King’s County, wrote of Egan’s saying “their beer is very good and their ‘eau de vie’ (whiskey) is excellent”.
Egan’s Tullamore Ale was recognised as the finest dinner ale available in Ireland at the time. Indeed, such was the reputation of our whiskeys and ales, expansion into the much larger UK market quickly took hold.
The Egan family set about resurrecting their family brand in 2013. Family members from across the globe, across generations, came together and reformed P. & H. Egan Ltd. Family-owned and operated, the Egan’s portfolio embodies the true spirit of Irish whiskey, six generations in whiskey.
