Uh Oh - Tesco Have Had To Do This With Conor McGregor's Whiskey After Release

Conor McGregor's new Whiskey is flying off the shelves but Tesco have had to do something very strange with it.

The Proper No. Twelve drink has been hugely popular since its release, so much so that Tesco had to put up a sign to tell their customers that they can only buy a limited amount at one time.

A sign in one store said that:

“Due to popular demand unfortunately Proper 12 whiskey is limited to two bottles per customer per day.”

Speaking about the whiskey, McGregor said that it was important that the whiskey's name had a special meaning.

“I come from a place called Crumlin, in Dublin 12. It’s a place dear to my heart. It’s where I learned how to fight, it made me who I am today.

“It’s a place I’m still very much a part of every single day of my life. So, that’s where the name came from. It’s proper Irish whiskey and twelve is my hometown.”

"I have spent a lifetime studying this craft under the tutelage of my late Grandfather on my mother’s side, Christopher “Jakes” Moore, and I have put just over 3 years into the making of this liquid alone.

"Proper Irish Whiskey, from a Proper Irish man!

"Born and bred in the Dublin suburb of Crumlin, Dublin 12. Proper Twelve is who I am.

"I wanted to make an Irish whiskey emblematic of Irish culture as a whole, and something that would showcase the great skill we possess of distilling the best Whiskey in the entire world. One of the many amazing skills we possess on this great island.

"Proper Twelve is crafted at Ireland’s oldest distillery. It is made with the Isle’s freshest spring water and finest golden grain and single malt – it is pure liquid gold."

Haven't tried the new whiskey yet, but I'm looking forward to having a sip for sure.

If you've had it, let me know what you think of it.
