Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey is made in Birmingham, and perfectly distilled to give a smooth finish. Harking back to Brum’s colourful 1920s’ post-war past and the Anglo-Irish Peaky Blinders gang, it’s a small-batch, triple-distilled, blended Irish whiskey. Infused with fruit and spice to balance and give a flavoursome kick. Just the thing to accompany a dark, old-school ale.
The Peaky Blinders were a criminal gang based in Birmingham, during the Victorian era. Members of this gang wore a signature outfit including the famous peaked flat caps.
A number of violent street gangs such as the Blinders, the Sloggers and the Birmingham Boys became highly organised and had vast amounts of political control and social power. The most famous of all the gang leaders was probably Billy Kimber.
Billy Kimber was a relative of the Sadler family and the gangs back in 1900 regularly visited the Sadler’s pubs. As a result, the brand has dedicated the Peaky Blinder Spirits range to the gang, consisting of an Irish Whiskey, a Bourbon Whiskey, a Spiced Dry Gin and a Black Spiced Rum.
