Founder PJ Rigney dreamed of building his own distillery, but not just any distillery. He discovered the beautiful village of Drumshanbo, on the shores of Lough Allen, at the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn (The Iron Mountain), and knew he had found the location for his distillery.
This marked a return to the traditional methods using gleaming copper pot and column stills, where PJ could experiment with wild grains, Irish flora, and exotic botanicals.
Melding the time-trusted method of blending Irish malted and Irish un-malted barley with the creamy texture of Irish Barra Oats led to the creation of their small batch Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey--an exceptionally smooth, creamy, spicy, and a true delight for the senses.
This marked the first Irish whiskey from the Western province of Connacht in over 105 years.
The distillery has also seen success with its other products such as Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin and Sausage Tree Vodka.
