Thin Lizzy and the Philip Lynott Estate are delighted to announce the global launch of their own brand Irish Whiskey, developed by the band in collaboration with Ireland’s West Cork Distillers. The Thin Lizzy Irish Whiskey was created as a result of band members Scott Gorham and Brian Downey together with the family of Philip Lynott – wife Caroline and daughters Sarah and Cathleen – visiting the beautiful town of Skibbereen and working with the Head Distiller at West Cork Distillers to develop an Irish Whiskey which we all enjoy and are excited to share with Irish Whiskey enthusiasts around the world.
We asked the renowned Dublin artist Jim Fitzpatrick, creator of many of the Thin Lizzy iconic album covers, to come on board and work with the West Cork Distillers branding team to produce a label that will be immediately recognized and associated with the band by fans whilst also appreciated for its beauty by all. We are truly proud that our whiskey has already achieved double gold medals in The Europe Wine & Spirit awards, proving that we have a quality offering worthy of the Thin Lizzy name. Only last month Thin Lizzy were voted the best Irish band of all time in a St Patrick’s Day poll of more than 10,000 music fans and listeners of Ireland’s Radio Nova. This confirms Thin Lizzy’s status and proves the band are still as relevant as ever.
