Paddy Old Irish Whiskey
The name Paddy is derived from Patrick J. O 'Flaherty, who joined the Cork Distilleries Company as a representative in 1882. Through his efforts the whiskeys of this distillery were available everywhere in Ireland. In the vernacular, his name quickly changed to that of Paddy.
As a tribute to the popular representative, the Cork Distilleries named their whiskey to Paddy in 1912. Paddy is an icon of the Irish Whiskey industry and is one of the biggest Irish Whiskey brands that owes its fame to its soft taste.
But less well known is the fact that this delicious whiskey is named after a friendly representative who worked for Cork Distilleries Company, Paddy Flaherty.
In 1882, young Patrick J. O'Flaherty joined Cork Distilleries Company as a representative.
Paddy Flaherty's legacy lives on in the Whiskey that was named after him in 1912.
