70cl / 46% - A special bottling to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the license to distil aqua vitae in Antrim originally granted in 1608 to Sir Thomas Phillips. Bushmills 1608 was named Best Irish Blended Whiskey (No Age Statement) at the World Whiskies Awards in both 2008 and 2012.
70cl / 40% - A rich, dark, Irish blend, Black Bush contains a high proportion of triple-distilled single malt, aged in Oloroso sherry casks for around 8-10 years before marriage with the grain. Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010.
70cl / 40% - Hugely popular Irish blend, renowned for its affinity with ginger ale. The default springboard into the fascinating world of Irish whiskey, Jameson's quality has improved massively in the last 10-15 years and it's one of Jim Murray's favourites, with 95 points in the Whisky Bible 2013.
70cl / 46% - Introduced by Irish Distillers in 2011 as part of the relaunched range of pot still whiskies, The Barry Crockett Legacy is named for the Midleton master distiller and combines bourbon cask matured whisky with some from a new American oak barrel. A great entry into the Midleton line-up which has been showered with awards since it first appeared on the horizon.
50cl / 61.5% - A punchy bottling of the infamous Irish moonshine known as Poitin(Poteen), put together by the folks of the Teeling Whisky Company. A blend of double-distilled malt spirit and triple distilled maize spirit - classic Irish whiskey new make available to try before it's touched a barrel.
70cl / 43% / Distillery Bottling - A very interesting dram, the only Speysider to be triple-distilled like a Lowland malt or Irish whiskey, but with a lot more body and character than either of those styles. Impressive stuff.
70cl / 40% - The superlative Jameson 18yo has long been considered one of the brightest stars of the range. This blend of two potstill whiskies and a single grain is matured in Oloroso sherry casks and finished in bourbon wood for 6 months for a brilliantly complex potstill character.
100cl / 40% - A blended Irish whiskey, Clontarf Classic was originally a 100% grain whiskey from Cooley, but these days the product has a very small amount of malt in it, with the grain supplied by Irish Distillers (top inside info from Jim Murray's Whisky bible there - JM gives it 86 points).
70cl / 40% - The Irishman Single Malt is triple distilled and aged in a combination of bourbon and oloroso sherry casks, resulting in a complex whisky.
70cl / 40% / Distillery Bottling - A five-year-old blended whisky released by the recently formed Belfast Distillery Company. Made using whiskies distilled at Cooley (until the BDC's Crumlin Road Gaol is up and running), this is a surprisingly complex whisky for its age.
70cl / 40% - Orbis is a blend of whiskies from America, Canada, Ireland, Japan and Scotland, blended by the team at the St James Distillery. Originally available exclusively in travel retail, it's since been given a wider launch. This has notes of dried fruit, Christmas cake and honey, with a hint of smoke.

70cl / 40% - A gift pack from the benchmark Irish single malt, which has a far greater depth of flavour than standard Irish blends. A former winner of Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey in the World at the World Whiskies Awards. This set includes a pair of glasses to enjoy it from.
100cl / 43% / Distillery Bottling - A classic Lowlander, Auchentoshan, like most Irish whiskies, is triple-distilled for extra smoothness. This now-discontinued 10yo is a perfect intro to the delights of single malt whisky.
75cl / 40% - A rare old bottling of Old Comber Pure Pot Still. This is one of the very last whiskies to have been produced at the Old Comber distillery before it was closed in 1953. A great opportunity to taste a long-aged Irish pure-pot-still whiskey.
70cl / 43% - The Distiller's Safe is head distiller Brian Nation's choice in Jameson's The Whisky Makers series. Crafted to show off the purity of the distillery's spirit, this has a barley-sugar sweetness with subtle tropical fruit notes and a zesty finish.
70cl / 43% - The Cooper's Croze is part of Jamesons' The Whisky Maker series and has been selected by head cooper Ger Buckley to highlight the role wood plays in whiskey maturation. Using a combination of virgin oak, bourbon barrels and sherry casks, this has notes of vanilla, rich fruit and spice.
