Conor McGregor is undoubtedly one of the most prosperous ex-fighters-turned-businesspeople outside of the octagon. Proper No. Twelve Irish whisky stands out as the largest and most profitable of his ventures, despite the fact that all of them have been profitable. In September 2018, McGregor introduced Proper No. Twelve Irish whisky in Ireland and the US. Around that time, McGregor actively pushed his business and famously offered Khabib Nurmagomedov, a devout Muslim competitor, a drink.
Conor McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve Irish Whisky was on track to overtake Jameson as the second-most popular Irish whisky brand in the United States in 2022, according to analysis from Impact Data.
The Crumlin-born fighter is heavily involved in promoting the Irish whisky even though he and business associates Ken Austin and Audi Attar sold a reputed 60% stake in Proper No. Twelve to Proximo Spirits for US$600 million.
Triple Distilled Irish Whiskey, the company’s signature offering, is a blend of grain and malt spirits that has been matured in Bourbon barrels to enhance its fruity characteristics. Before choosing this combination, McGregor and Elder reportedly tasted close to a hundred different iterations. Proper No. Twelve is a delicate and sweet Irish whisky with notes of vanilla, light malt, controlled oak, honey, apples, pears, caramel, cut grass, pressed flowers, peppery spice, and a hint of lime.
In order to introduce Genuine Irish Apple, their first innovation outside of the flagship product, Conor McGregor recently summoned his inner Steve Jobs. The new beverage, according to “The Notorious,” is an exquisite mashup of Proper No. Twelve Irish whisky with a natural apple flavour that is as smooth as liquid gold and has a crisp, fresh Irish apple aftertaste.
Despite this, McGregor is excited to experiment with the whisky’s various maturities since it is now only offered in the four-year-aged variety. To determine how the alcohol acquires its specific flavours, he intends to test out a range of barrels.
