The Connacht Whiskey Company Ltd. is the result of a dream shared by four men, three Americans and one Irishman, to bring pure pot still Irish whiskey back to the West of Ireland after an absence of over 100 years. These men share bonds of family and friendship. They also share a respect of heritage and a commitment to Connacht, one of the most natural and unspoiled regions of Ireland. We distill, barrel age, and bottle our spirits on-site at the Connacht Distillery. The distillery houses our three copper pot stills, which were designed by our master distiller and produce our spirits. Our rick house holds barrels full of our whiskey that will slowly mature, benefiting from the slighty salty air found along the Moy Estuary. The air in our distillery enjoys the heavenly scent of evaporating fine Irish whiskey known as “the angels’ share.” The heady odor of whiskey is a far cry from the yeasty tang the building used to enjoy when it housed the Duffy family bakery. The building surely has moved from one classic use of fine Irish grains to another.
