VOYAGES EXTRAORDINAIRES

To revel in a more interesting mode of travel, one should seek alternate routes. Our journey may challenge traditionalists for our chosen course is terroir; our desired destination complexity. After traversing the terroirs of Southern Ireland, Head Distiller Ned has layered together a playful collection of Single Farm Origins to create a particularly mellow, fresh & fruity single malt whisky. The ideal travel companion celebrates our much yearned-for passage across the seas.

BARLEY VARIETIES

The Breathing Barrels

A Micro Cuvée is a miniature assemblage of components - both Single Farm Origins and different cask types. Of the latter, each of our distillates matures in a mixture of the best French and American oak, in our nearby warehouse at Ballygarran, right by the sea. It's Head Distiller Ned's pantry, chock-full of ingredients with which to make his experimental cuvées.
