West Cork Distillers

We are thrilled to bring you these three expressions from West Cork Distillers. We are so excited to follow this distillery and look forward to adding more expressions from them.  West Cork Distillers was founded in 2003 by three life long friends, Denis Mcarthy,

Ger McCarthy and John O'Connell.  John worked as a research and development scientist for several large blue chip food and beverage companies, and Denis and Ger were deep sea trawlers.  They were inspired by West Cork's proud history in artisan food and beverage production, so they decided to establish a distillery to produce the highest quality spirits and provide sustainable employment in this beautiful, remote part of Ireland.  

Several reasons make West Cork Distillers unique. They handcraft most of the mashing, fermenting, and distilling tools on site. It is the most southernly located distillery in the Atlantic Archipelago with a climate perfect for the maturation of Irish Whiskey. They only use Irish grown grain. They only use pot stills for the production of their Irish Whiskey.

The Pogues

The Pogues is the official Irish Whiskey of the band and a creative blend of 50% 10 year old Single Malt Irish Whiskey aged in Sherry Casks along with 7 year old Irish Whiskey aged in Bourbon Casks and 50% Irish Grain Whiskey aged in Bourbon Casks. It tastes of caramel sauce, hazelnuts, and a hint of lemon.  We recommend drinking it on the rocks or in an Irish Coffee.

West Cork Bourbon Cask

West Cork Bourbon Cask is a blend of 75% Grain Irish Whiskey and 25% malt Irish Whiskey matured in first fill Bourbon Casks giving it a smooth flavor of malt, citrus, and nutmeg.  This is the perfect Irish Whiskey for someone enjoying Irish Whiskey for the first time. We recommend drinking it neat or on the rocks with your favorite mixer or simply with a gentlemen's cube.

West Cork 10yr Single Malt

West Cork 10 Year Old Single Malt is prepared from Irish Malted Barley and pot distilled for a beautifully smooth Irish Single Malt, a category with a lot of history that is often overlooked. This is a delicious Single Malt that tastes of citrus and malt with a gentle sweetness. We recommend enjoying this neat or with a gentlemen's cube.
