What to call your new Irish Whiskey Distillery is a question facing many budding entrants into the market.
Some opt for the geographical connection, a town name,area or region as in Connacht , Nephin or Clonakilty distilleries.
Others choose a family link as in Pearse Lyons or Teeling distilleries.
Then there is the rich historical vein of tapping into Ireland’s bountiful distilling past such as Roe & Co.
Or in this instance, Matt D’Arcy & Co.
Matt D’Arcy & Co were a whiskey company that traded in Newry many moons ago.
A new group of entrepreneurs have revived the name.
Building works are ongoing in Newry and whilst they wait for their own whiskey to mature a pair of sourced Matt D’Arcy Whiskeys have been released.
Casks Away welcomes these new whiskeys and looks forward to escorting guests to the doors of this fabulous distillery when built.
