We have introduced a full range of West Cork Irish Whiskey online West Cork Irish Whiskey is produced , distilled, matured and bottled onsite at West Cork Distillers and sells in over 70 countries worldwide.
Each bottle is Triple Distilled, non-chill filtered and carefully crafted using the finest local ingredients.
It has often been said that "West Cork Distillers is a place built and run by the people, for the people". Formed in 2003 by childhood friends, John O'Connell, Ger McCarthy and Denis McCarthy, distilling began in a room at the back of Denis' house in Union Hall with two small stills.
As their business expanded, the decision to relocate was made in 2014. Much of the distillery equipment was hand built as needed, such as the Rocket, reported to be 'the fastest in the world' at the time.
Today they operate out of a 12 acre site in Skibbereen, West Cork. The distillation capacity has increased to 4 million litres of alcohol in 2020 and they employ over 80 people.
As a growing company, they are committed to providing sustainable employment to this unspoiled part of the world they call home.
West Cork itself has a proud history in artisan food and beverage production and they intend to uphold this fine reputation. They source the best of ingredients locally where possible and rely on many local service providers to deliver their product worldwide.
