Cape Clear Island Distillery was an inspirational concept which is now becoming a realistic venture, born from the sheer determination and commitment of an extraordinary community who live on one of the most beautiful places on this planet.
OUR WHISKEY ¦ DÚN an ÓIR
Ours will be a well-crafted and distinct classic Irish whiskey with a hint of the ocean, made with 100% Irish barley.
Triple distilled, it will have balance and complexity arising from maturation in our unique island micro-climate. It will mature in both former oloroso sherry casks made from Iberian oak, and bourbon casks made with white American oak.
Our labels represent various features of our island.
