Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey
An Irish whiskey created by Sadler’s Ales in Birmingham to accompany its Peaky Blinder beer. Harking back to Brum’s colourful 1920s’ post-war past and the Anglo-Irish Peaky Blinders gang, it’s a small-batch, triple-distilled, blended Irish whiskey, with balanced fruit and spice. Just the thing to accompany a dark, old-school ale.
This is an Irish whiskey that has enjoyed a finishing period in Sherry casks before being bottled as part of the Peaky Blinder range from Sadler’s. The name comes from a street gang that was around in the late 19th and early 20th Century, a member of which you can see on the label – note the all important cap, which apparently was where the gang name originates.
Nose: Blackcurrant and apple, with a hint of toffee underneath.
Palate: Melted chocolate, apricots and dried peels.
Finish: A subtle hint of cinnamon sticks around on the finish.

Quote 1: “Love it whether straight or as a long drink with a slice of lime ice and ginger ale.”
Quote 2: “Sweet and smooth with chocolate and fruit background, slight toffee taste. Spicy, been given sample will now buy bottle for myself.”
Quote 3: “Absolutely loved it & i bought it due to description & not the name….i’ve never watched Peaky Blinder. Sad that some bad comments seem to be from narcissistic snobs . I found it very smooth & delicious & had no side effects at all….headache etc . Bought a bottle earlier this week & my 2nd bottle will arrive tomorrow. Exactly what i was looking for. “
