THE rapidly growing West Cork Distillers, which was founded in 2004 by three close friends, is one of Ireland’s few independent whiskey distilleries.
Proudly located in West Cork, an area renowned for artisan handcrafted food and beverages, West Cork Distillers now exports to more than 60 countries worldwide and is delighted to announce their recent launch in Cork and Dublin airports.
Building on their success with the current range, which includes West Cork Original Blend, 10 Year Old Single Malt and the limited release Cask Strength and Black Cask, West Cork Distillers have just released three different 12 Year Old Single Malts – 12 Year Old Sherry Cask; 12 Year Old Port Cask and 12 Year Old Rum Cask. Meaning there is now definitely something for all the different whiskey lovers of the world.
Speaking about the company’s ethos John O’Connell, one of the co-founders, has said ‘’Since its inception, we at West Cork Distillers have believed in the delicate balance between scalable and artisan whiskey production and have actively strived to achieve this’’.
He then went on to mention that “Several of our products have been sold in the Loop in recent years, including Drombeg and Lough Hyne, and we are delighted the airport range now includes our flagship West Cork whiskeys”.
“We at West Cork Distillers understand that our airports are Ireland’s gateway to the world and we are keenly aware that West Cork is a popular tourist hub, enjoying visitors from all over the world. With this in mind it is important to us that our products are available for sale to those same visitors on their way home from Cork or Dublin. We love knowing that they can take a taste of West Cork back home with them if they so choose to” comments Liz Field, West Cork Distillers Sales Manager.
