This latest release from the County Clare based whiskey bonder, take its name from J.J. Corry’s son in law who was a revenue man in the early 1900’s known locally as “The Gauger Hanson”.

J.J. Corry – The Hanson, is said to be a classically bright, fruit-forward Irish Whiskey, which is mellowed with deep oak and rich toasted vanilla notes.

Commenting on the launch, Louise McGuane, J.J. Corry Founder Louise McGuane, said: “As curators of casks, we are building a library of Irish Whiskey flavours with which to create unique blends. The Hanson perfectly reflects the matchmaking element encompassed in the art of Irish Whiskey Bonding and showcases the best of Ireland’s distilleries. It is a meticulous blend of Irish Grain Whiskey from different Irish distilleries. Four and ten years aged in ex-bourbon barrels, each cask was selected to build complexity upon those sweet fruit qualities of the grain whiskey. The four year old was matured on site in County Clare in juicy ex-bourbon casks we hand-picked ourselves in Louisville Kentucky.”

To celebrate the launch the J.J. Corry team will host a virtual tasting today (May 1st) at 17:00 BST, across their social media channels.

J.J. Corry – The Hanson, is now available from for a RRP of £46.95
