Founded in 2015, Boann Distillery joined the resurgence of Irish whiskey in 2019, producing the first spirit in the town of Drogheda in more than 160 years. The company was launched by Patrick "The Whistler" Cooney and his wife Marie with several other family members. Backed by 40 years of experience in the industry, the family has the know-how, skill, and passion to create premium Irish whiskey. On one hand, they honor the rich tradition of Irish whiskey, on the other they take innovative approaches using cutting-edge technology which includes their state-of-the-art brewhouse and unique 3 copper-pot stills that use nanotechnology ― all with the goal of creating some of the finest whiskey and craft gin.

All the ingredients are 100% natural, including locally-grown barley from native farmers and water from the Boyne Valley well. Environmentally conscious, they recycle their water and harness the heat that is generated during distillation, which then helps run their packaging lines and heat their restaurant, visitor center, and offices. Distillation byproducts are used as animal feed.

The Whistler Imperial Stout Cask Finish is a limited-edition collaboration between Boann Distillery and O'hara's brewery. First, 250-liter sherry hogshead barrels that formerly held The Whistler 7YO Single Malt are filled with the award-winning Imperial Stout and matured for 6 months. Then, a premium blend of whiskeys – 35% single malt whiskey, 50% wheat whiskey, and 15% grain whiskey, all aged separately in ex-bourbon casks – are married and finished in the same Imperial Stout beer casks for another 6 months. Bottled at 86 proof, it's non-chill filtered and brings creamy dark chocolate, ground bitter coffee, and undertones of caramel on the palate.
