West Cork Distillery
One of the few remaining independent distilleries; uses only pure Irish spring water filtered through sandstone; barley & wheat used are authentic to Ireland; they malt their own barley; all whiskeys produced in small pot stills – the lower wine to copper ratio insures a high quality spirit; they sacrifice yield for quality with the cut being at 65-75% in comparison to the standard 30%; double charred bourbon casks are standard use; these practices facilitate the production of whiskey with a very smooth taste with accentuated vanilla, almond/cracked nuts undertones & sweetness. Two of the world’s highly respected master distillers are part of the West Cork team – Frank McHardy & Dr Barry Walsh – nearly 100 years of experience between them.
