Standing proudly in the heart of the Co. Armagh town of Portadown for over 150 years, McConville’s Bar has stood the test of time.
Tonight sees the launch of a 9 Year Old Powers Single Cask and I for one am rather excited about the whole thing! I’m hoping to make the launch event next week and until then below is the information shared online by Whiskey Club NI
If this building could talk, it would have some story to tell. Prohibition. The Roaring ‘20s. Conflict. Resolution. McConville’s has seen it all.
Spirited conversations and meetings of minds have taken place within these walls for generations, often spurred on by a dram or two of Irish Whiskey. Rich whiskey history courses through the veins of this famous public house.
A licensed premises has stood on this spot since the 1800s. Formerly a trusted wine and spirt merchant, McConville’s once bottled its own blend of whiskey, and today proudly houses one of the largest Irish Whiskey collections in Ulster.
Pull up a pew, or take a seat in one of its original wooden snugs and you are instantly transported back in time. Ornate moulded ceilings, original tiled floors and decorative etched windows sit alongside original woodwork said to have been modelled on the Titanic. McConville’s is proud of its rich history, its spirited past and its place in the hearts of local people. And so are we.
Aged for 9 years and 11 months, this special Powers Single Cask release embodies the heritage and craft of the Irish pot still whiskey tradition, which has been nurtured by Midleton Distillery for almost 200 years.
This one-of-a-kind whiskey will be available to purchase directly from McConville’s Bar for £165 from March 10th and with a small yield of only 228 bottles they’re not expected to be available for too long.
