Loch Measc distillery began in early 2018 Killateeaun, (Coill an tSian, Fairy Wood) in Co. Mayo on the shores of the lake in a reconditioned building. They draw inspiration from the wild and rugged beauty of the landscape, the purity and abundance of the Lough Mask waters and the rich culture and history of the area.
Loch Measc craft tiny batches of wonderfully rich spirit by hand in their copper pot stills. These stills were made for us by traditional coppersmiths based on the ancient Alembic Still design. If you look at their stills you can see every careful hammer blow. They have stayed true to the microbrewing ideals, having up-cycled, recycled and adapted much of their equipment, sourced from various small breweries, distilleries and dairy farms.
Loch Measc has gone on to produce: Loch Measc Single Malt Whiskey, Loch Measc Gin, and Loch Measc Vodka.
