The whiskey will also be available in the US as an exclusive feature at his Nona Blue Modern Tavern locations in Lake Nona and Pointe Vedra Beach, Florida.
The new brand is expected to be available across all of North America and Ireland by 2022.
According to the product's website, the Irish whiskey brand will pay tribute to McDowell’s journey from the small seaside town of Portrush on the north coast of Co Antrim, Northern Ireland, to the shores of America.
“I’m very excited to be building an authentic Irish whiskey brand that honours the spirit of the Irish experience and celebrates the journey to America and the ongoing quest to fulfil your dreams,” said Graeme McDowell.
“Growing up in a small town, you learn that if you want something, you have to work hard for it and then make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.”
