Killarney Distilling Co

The speed at which Irish Whiskey is expanding is breathtaking.

New developments are popping up everywhere.

The Killarney Distilling Company (newspaper article here) intend to build a whiskey distillery on a site near Fossa on the picturesque Ring Of Kerry.

The distillery plan emanates from the Killarney Brewing Company (website here) who already release a range of craft beers.

A Killarney Gin is also available.

Blacks Brewery And Distillery, Kinsale

Blacks Of Kinsale are synonymous with producing a fine range of heavily hopped IPA beers.

They also have a distillery producing a varied range of spirits which have included Moonshine, Gin and Rum.

They have recently experimented with whiskey too.

But in the meantime, as many others do while their own stock matures, have released a sourced 12 year old single malt.

If the liquid inside tastes as cool as it looks I’m sure it will be a stunner.

Casks Away looks forward to future releases from this innovative and enterprising brewery/distillery company.

Boann Distillery

Boann Distillery sits in an impressive building of glass, copper & wood overlooking the open fields of County Meath on Ireland’s East Coast.

It’s a family affair.

The Cooney family to be precise.

They have built up over 40 years experience in the drinks trade in all areas of the industry.

Now the distillery hasn’t been commissioned as yet, but in the meantime an impressive array of sourced malts & blends under The Whistler brand have been gathering awards & appreciation.

What is also impressive is the large brewery & bottling plant that sits behind the distillery wall.

Operating as the Boyne Brewhouse they already produce an award winning array of tasty beers, stouts & cider.

A visit to this combined brewery & distillery wouldn’t be complete without sampling some of the fine locally produced foods of the nearby historic Boyne Valley in the soon to be finished Stillhouse Bistro.

Casks Away can’t wait to take you there!
