Such is the story behind The Pogues, a new release from Ireland's West Cork Distillers, named after and developed in collaboration with Celtic punk rock band The Pogues. But before you get lost in visions of Iggy Pop spit-spraying whiskey atop mosh-pitting teens, trust us: West Cork is serious about craft distilling, and their release of The Pogues is serious Irish whiskey.
