Cork is widely recognised as the cultural home for whiskey production in Ireland and a sector enjoying unprecedented growth. Their success is built on friendship, the passion for innovation and quality products. Preserving the fine craft of traditional Irish Whiskey, West Cork is dedicated to producing the highest quality Irish Whiskies using local products and artisanal techniques.
