The man himself
The namesake for our Award-Winning whiskey since 1913, and the joyous spirit of Paddying that goes along with it.
A legendary traveler
Patrick J. O’Flaherty, better known as Paddy, sold what became his namesake whiskey in pubs across Ireland for an incredible four decades, spanning the turn of the 20th century. Magnetic, outgoing and generous, Paddy bought rounds and made friends everywhere he went, always making sure everyone had a great time. Kind and wise, with a good-natured, rapier wit, Paddy was always welcomed and was by all accounts universally beloved. After 40 years of service, the whiskey he sold took on his name.
FROM THE LAND OF PADDYING, TO YOURS
IF WE ALL COULD LIVE LIKE PADDY
Paddy is the inspiration for the act we now deem as “Paddying” – the act of sharing his wonderful whiskey with great company, for even greater stories. More than the life of the party, Paddy was well known for his uncommon generosity of spirit (and spirits), but he was truly a man of the people. Paddy had the rare gift of charisma, meaning he drew people to him. What Paddy was—was genuine—and that brought out the best in those around them. Shall We Paddy?
