Shanky’s Whip premium Irish whiskey liqueur, manufactured by Shanky & Shireman, a company formed by Biggar & Leith for liquor production. Shanky’s Whip has gained popularity in recent years for its unique flavor profile and versatility in cocktails.[1][2]


Shanky’s Whip was launched in 2021 by Shanky & Shireman, a company formed by Biggar & Leith and manufactured in County Cavan, Ireland.[3][4]

The story behind Shanky’s Whip is an interesting story of a fantastical Irish jockey named Shanky who, according to legend, was thrown from his horse mid-race.[5] Undeterred, he returned to the track with an ostrich, a cart, and a whip to complete the race.[6] The vintage-inspired packaging, which resembles a giant matchbox, features an illustration of Shanky and his ostrich cart, framed by a golden horseshoe.[7]

Shanky was always a trendsetter and adored Irish whisky, with the exception of its burn. He enjoyed the flavor of the cream but not its texture.[8] But he adored everything about stout. Thus, he created Shanky's Whip by mixing everything he enjoyed and nothing he disliked into one bottle.[9][10]

To create this whiskey liqueur, A black Irish pot still whisky is blended with natural flavors of vanilla, caramel, and a creamy stout-like finish, which results in a smooth, rich flavor without the burn of typical whiskies.[11] Shanky's Whip's subtle spiciness is balanced by the smells of sweet vanilla and nutty caramel, creating the ideal balance between sweetness and spice. Shanky's Whip has an ABV of 33%, making it ideal for drinking or combining.[12][13]


Shnaky’s Whip is a blend of Black Irish Pot Still Whiskey with the natural flavors of vanilla, caramel, and a creamy finish.[14] Shanky’s Whip is sold in a vintage-inspired Irish matchbox glass bottle featuring the brand’s story.[15] The product is packaged in an elegant bottle that is designed to reflect its premium quality. It has a distinctive label that features a whip, which is a nod to the product’s name.
