Connacht Single Malt Batch 1

Irish Whiskey from Connacht Distillery.

The distillery was founded by Master Distiller Robert Cassell and his team who saw the potential in Irish whiskey. The derelict old Duffy’s Bakery site in Ballina was converted to a modern distillery with a €10m investment. Whiskey production commenced in 2016.

Batch 1 is the first from Connacht Distillery’s copper pot stills. It is double distilled, aged in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished in Jerez sherry casks with a total maturation time of four years.

It is the first whiskey produced in County Mayo in over 150 years. It is bottled at 47% abv.
