Dingle Distillery

Dingle Distillery – Ireland

Small. Artisan. Independent. Proud. We hold these truths to be self-evident. Distilleries are not created equal, nor is the whiskey that flows from them.

Dingle Whiskey is a product of its environment. From the localised well water to the immensely manual mashing, alongside the wooden fermentation vessels that feed into the three bespoke copper pot stills, the production is purely Dingle. The micro climate then creates a maturation like no other. We do not manipulate the course of our whiskey, only nature can do that.
 
Dingle whiskey has a hand-made character. Unique Whiskey. From the
edge. The Dingle Whiskey Distillery is not in the business of creating megabrands, nor do we distil for anyone else. Our scale is modest, our approach to what we make is essentially artisan and we have rekindled the tradition of independent distilling in Ireland. Two hundred years ago, this small island had over a hundred officially recognised distilleries; by the turn of this century there were two.
 
When the first spirit trickled from the stills here in November 2012 it
represented a milestone in the history of distilling in Ireland, and now our unique Dingle Whiskey continually matures in the mild, moist climate of Ireland’s south-west coast while those first spirits are bottled into a magnificent single malt whiskey.
 
You can also enjoy the fruits of our labours in the form of Dingle Original Gin and Dingle Distillery Vodka.

Bruges Whisky

Bruges Whisky – Belgium

Real Bruges whisky : made in Bruges, matured in Bruges and bottled in Bruges !..

Out of our passion for whisky, the Bruges Whiskey Company was born.

Thibaut’s has been fanatical about whisky for several years. He knows what he likes, but nowadays it has become increasingly difficult to find good whisky at a decent price. We wanted to do something about it so decided to make whisky ourselves, a father and son operation. This was similar to when we saw that the prices for meals in Bruges were very high and decided to open our restaurant, Barista’s Secret, and focus on affordability as well as quality.

Copper Rivet Distillery

Masthouse_CopperRivet

Copper Rivet Distillery

Masthouse Whisky is a rare single estate, single malt whisky made exclusively from Belgravia spring barley grown at 40 Acre Marsh, just 15 miles from Copper Rivet Distillery.

Distilled slowly in our locally crafted still and matured in predominantly ex-Bourbon casks, Masthouse Whisky is a beguiling spirit which proudly shows our distillery’s fruity, floral house style.

It offers green apple and ginger biscuits, tropical fruit and floral mid notes, toasted oak and chocolate orange and finishes with malt and white pepper.

It is a wonderfully accessible and yet, we believe, a complex spirit. We hope you enjoy Masthouse Single Malt Whisky as much as we have loved making it.

Kinsale Spirit Co

Kinsale Spirit Co.

Kinsale Spirit Company characterises what is best about Kinsale, one of Ireland’s most vibrant and beautiful coastal towns.

A working port, renowned for its food, drink and active leisure pursuits, Kinsale has proactivity and sense of community that inspires our products. Founder and resident of Kinsale, Tom O Riordan, drew on this to establish the Kinsale Spirit Company and begin work on our award-winning brands. He bought a small still and began making small batches of gin with his sister, Clodagh, in his kitchen.

Using various botanicals, some traditional, some foraged from the local area, 60+ batches, and many sampling sessions with friends and family later, they hit on the unique recipe that is now Kinsale Gin. Licences were obtained, the first batch of 100 bottles was made up, production was contracted and the rest, as they say, is history. Tom realised he had a potential hit on his hands, so he partnered up with two local food and beverage entrepreneurs, Ernest Cantillon and Colin Ross, to help him best achieve this. Kinsale Spirit Company is now exporting its award-winning brands to China, the USA and a number of other markets.

We have launched our first foray into the exciting Irish Whiskey market with a smooth and mellow range of Irish Whiskeys, The Battle of Kinsale Series, beginning with Red Earl Irish Whiskey, now complemented by Great Earl Single Grain Irish Whiskey and Spanish Earl Single Malt Irish Whiskey. The future plans for the Company include the development of its core brands and the construction of a distillery in Kinsale, Co. Cork.
