Muldoon Whiskey Liqueur
Muldoon was the first original drink crafted by Anchor Spirits. It is a blend of quality Irish whiskey infused with toffee and hazelnut flavours. The result is a 25% ABV Irish Whiskey Liqueur. It has won many awards nationally and internationally for taste and quality.
Muldoon takes its name from Tom Muldoon a local healer and herbalist who successfully used Irish whiskey in many of his medicines and remedies.
Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur is sweet on the nose, but less so on the pallet with an undeniable smoothness and warmth. The soft Irish Whiskey is hugely complemented by the sweetness of the toffee. Muldoon is often enjoyed alone, or it can, unusually, be mixed with whiskey or whisky. It’s a fabulous ingredient for cocktails and has been the secret weapon of many a chef when it comes to both sweet and, surprisingly, savoury dishes. It has recently become quite a hit in emerging vegan circles, as it has all the benefits and smoothness of a cream liqueur without any of the dairy.
Muldoon takes its name from Tom Muldoon a locally renowned healer and herbalist who successfully used Irish whiskey in many of his medicines and remedies. Tom made his own whiskey in small casks and his notebooks show that he would often add wild hazelnuts to his concoctions for their curative powers. For centuries people believed that hazelnuts had mystical powers. Their branches were used as divining rodsto locate underground springs and minerals while the ancient Romans burned hazel torches as fertility tokens during wedding nights. Even doctors and herbalists used hazelnuts to treat the common cold and persistent coughs. While the hazelnuts were perceived as effective, the additional sweetness just made it all more palatable. We don't claim that Muldoon Irish Whiskey Liqueur is for health, but it has warmed our bones on many a winter's day and that certainly made us feel very, very well.
Muldoon is made with genuine Irish Whiskey and contains more Irish Whiskey than other whiskey liqueurs on the market. Muldoon is a fat free alternative to cream liqueurs and yet retains a smooth, luxurious finish.
I really loved this drink when I was in Waterford. I had it on my oatmeal in The Granville Hotel one morning and I had it again in the bar that night. I brought some home and I’m still enjoying it. Woo hoo. Ireland - you have some fantastic drinks. THANK YOU

We discovered Muldoon at my friend’s wedding. It was the toast to the bride and groom. What a great drink.
