Possibly a now defunct company and brand as I cannot find out much about them. Further the main brand of Ballydoyle does not seem to be in obvious supply since it's inception in 2004. It seems that Amberleigh House was released as a limited edition in celebration of the Horse of the same name who won the Grand National in 2004.
It is thought Hennessey had this whiskey bottled under their moniker for the Japanese Market. Possibly released to keep the Hennessey name to the fore when the whiskey market in Japan started to out grow the Cognac market. This marketing ploy it seems did not work as this brand was quickly shelved.

Bernard Walsh launched one of the newest Irish Whiskey brands only a couple years ago. On the back of the success of the Hot Irishman (An all in one Irish Coffee mix) he then let loose his vision of whiskey on us. The Irishman 70 is unique in that it is a blend of 70% malt and the rest pure pot still so all in all a 'Superior' blend. The other regular offering is a single malt sourced at Bushmills.

This curious private brand has been created especially for The Thatch pub in BroughShane, Co. Antrim. Described as a Pure Pot Still Classic Single malt is a bit misleading as it is simply a Single Malt and not a true Pure Pot still in the Irish whiskey sense. However with lack of regulation in relation to such terms there is technically nothing wrong as Single Malt is also produced in a Pot still ... confused.

Shanahan's on the Green is a top class steakhouse on the famous St Stephens Green in Dublin. John Shanahan, an Irish-American, opened this culinary delight because of his love for Ireland and so he could get a decent steak while visiting the green sod ;-). Bottled as a Single malt and a blend especially for the restaurant.

Jan 2011 saw the launch of yet another Irish Whiskey brand. The brain child of Peter Lavery the man behind the Danny Boy brand. However these will be part of a bigger project which is the Belfast Distillery Company. No details on an actual distillery opening up just yet.
Launched in 2009 from the same people who brought us Irishman Irish Whiskey. This is an excellent pot-still blended Irish Whiskey. However it does not appear to be any ordinary blend. Do not have much information on this yet but it appears to have a high pot still content than say Jameson or Powers and blended with Single Malt whiskey, whether or not there is grain in the mix we just do not know.The inspiration behind this is the literary heritage of Ireland evoking the spirit of Becket, Joyce, Shaw, Wilde and the like.
