John Powers began production in 1791. In 1886, they were one of the first to start to bottle their whiskeys – until then, almost all whiskeys were sold in barrels. Powers is one of the top-selling Irish whiskey. Originally a pure pot still it is now produced at the Midleton Distillery in Co. Cork as a blend of pot still and grain whiskeys. Powers is an Irish favourite with its fruity and spicy flavours giving way to a long lingering finish.
