The number of Irish Whiskey Distilleries continues to rise.
One that is currently being built is Achill Distillery.
It’s the brain child of The Irish American Trading Co who already have a couple of releases on the market.
There is the Classic Blend and a 10 Year Old Single Malt.
Both are fairly decent examples of bourbon cask matured Irish Whiskey in that they have a fruity nose combined with vanilla & caramel notes from the barrel with a little hint of spice too.
Both are sourced Irish Whiskeys from other distilleries until Achill Distillery is up and running.
You can follow the progress of the distillery on The Irish American Trading Co twitter page here or website here.
As in all such ventures, Casks Away looks forward to taking whiskey fans on a journey of discovery to Achill Island to taste some of the spirit when the stills are up and running.
