Research Project

The Irish Whiskey Industry in the 20th Century

My project will ask many questions about the Irish Whiskey Industry during the 20th century, including the history of its fall from power and subsequent revival later in the century, how the United Kingdom and the United States affected the industry, and if there was motive behind the near death of an industry. I plan on exploring the causes of the fall along and I hope to debunk many misconceptions and works of propaganda surrounding the events.
