Wayward Irish Spirits

Wayward Irish Spirits are newcomers to the current Irish Whiskey scene, but they have a proud family tradition of being in the drinks trade!

Aiming to be the most gorgeously situated single estate Irish Whiskey Distillery using grains grown on the Lakeview Estate in County Kerry, Wayward Irish Spirits recently launched The Liberator Irish Whiskey.

A blended malt Irish Whiskey finished in Tawny Port Casks in Kerry.

Estate grown grain is already being sown to make a pot still whiskey.

The owners of the Estate are direct descendants of Daniel O’Connell aka ‘The Liberator’ after whom both the whiskey and the company name emanates from.
