The Murphy White Whiskey Recipes date back to Belfast, Ireland. In 1850, Samuel Aldous Murphy Sr., the first of five generations to produce this fine Murphy Family White Whiskey, brought the Old World recipes to the United States. Samuel settled in Grouse, North Carolina where all five generations of Murphy boys were raised. The first son to be born in the United States in 1871 was Samuel Aldous Murphy Jr., at the very young age of 10 he learned to master the moonshine tradition from his father. Samuel Jr’s. Son Warren Aldous Murphy, was born in 1898, and soon the same tradition of making white whiskey, now called moonshine was passed down to him. Warren was the one with a real enterprising spirit, with his cousin, John Murphy, together they expanded the family business selling their moonshine into Baltimore, Pittsburg, all the way to Chicago during the years of prohibition, from 1920 to 1933. Warren’s son Robert Gene Murphy Sr., was born in 1931, he carried the torch until his son Ricky Gene Murphy Jr. was born in 1951. Today Ricky is the one carrying on the Murphy Legend of making Great White Whiskey in a legal endeavor for the public to enjoy. Raise your glass and have a sip!
