The Shed Distillery

From the ‘Curious Mind’ of P.J. Rigney and The Shed Distillery in Lovely Leitrim comes a trio of well crafted spirits.

First off the stills was Gunpowder Irish Gin.

Shed 2

Then Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka.

Shed 3

And recently The Inaugural Release Drumshanbo Whiskey.

A Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey using a mixed mash of malted and unmalted barley together with some oats.

Shed 1

All three are presented in exquisitly designed bottles and packaging.

All three are liquids of high quality and have been extremely well received in their respective categories.

A new visitors centre for the distillery is expected to open later in 2020.

Casks Away would love to take a group of fans to the Inaugural Opening to experience the fruits of that ‘Curious Mind’.

Nephin Distillery

Nestled under the mighty bulk of Nephin Mountain which rears up behind the County Mayo village of Laherdane, Nephin Whiskey Distillery is taking shape.

Unlike other distilleries Nephin Whiskey will not be releasing any sourced malt before their own is ready.

Nephin 2

They do have a shop in the village however selling branded product where you can learn all about Nephin Whiskey.

Nephin 3

And you can visit their sister company of Nephin Cooperage making the casks for the upcoming distillate in nearby Foxford town.

They will also be using locally grown barley to make that spirit.

Like all good things, Nephin Whiskey will not be rushed.

Casks Away looks forward to tasting that Nephin Whiskey when it’s good and ready!
