Clonakilty Irish Whiskey
A small family farm on the southwest coast of Ireland and an Irish farmer with a very big dream. The Scully family, the founders of Clonakilty distillery, have farmed this windswept coastal land for 9 successive generations. With the best resources that nature has to offer, prime land, pristine water, and salt sea air, they had the perfect ingredients for a maritime distillery. Perched 200ft. above the ocean, our Atlantic Ocean warehouse is ideal for maturing the finest of whiskeys. Pure clean air, transported across thousands of miles of the Atlantic, provides a freshness unspoiled by human intervention. We grow our own heritage barley on our family farm in the shadow of the Galley Head lighthouse. Centuries of sea mist, soft rain, and ocean spray provide a complexity to the soil that permeates through to each individual grain. Located at the waterfront, in the heart of Clonakilty town, the three gleaming copper pot stills are an inspiring sight to behold. It is here that we distill our award-winning new make, alongside our visitor experience and shop. This is where the magic starts and is the home of Clonakilty whiskey. We are privileged to support Whale and Dolphin Conservation in their worldwide quest to protect these majestic creatures. In addition, we are proud members of Origin Green an independently certified commitment to sustainable corporate practice.
