About the distillery
A majority of Irish Whiskey’s flavor comes from the barrel in which it is aged and from the climate in which that barrel is stored.
Our approach to aging, just like our approach to farming, is to work hand in hand with nature. The Irish weather is renowned for its unpredictability and tendency to change. It’s common here on the west coast of Ireland to experience four seasons in one day. Our farm, which sits right on the Wild Atlantic Way, has its own unique microclimate. Only one mile “as the crow flies” from the Atlantic Ocean, the air is tinged with brine and the temperature can fluctuate wildly throughout the day. Not so great for a biking holiday but fantastic for aging whiskey. The unique influence that this atmosphere will impart on our spirit won’t be apparent for a few years yet, but we are willing to wait.
