About The Connacht Whiskey Company
The Connacht Distillery was established in 2014 and began laying down what would become Connacht Single Malt Irish Whiskey in 2016. Our ‘First Cask’ release was a single cask which sold out over Christmas 2020 to great acclaim. ‘Batch 1’ was released later in 2021 and rapidly gained recognition as one reviewer put it as “one of the best, if not the best” of the releases from the new Irish distilleries. A double gold from San Francisco World Spirits Competition, ‘Best in Class’ from the American Distilling Institute & a gold medal from the Irish Whiskey Awards are among the accolades this whiskey has won. ‘Batch 1’ has now become a core expression for Connacht, called ‘Spirit of the Atlantic’ and it is a delicious double distilled whiskey made with malt from County Wexford, aged in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in ex-oloroso sherry casks.
