About West Cork
Westward Cork Distillers was founded by childhood friends John O'Connell, Ger McCarthy, and Denis McCarthy. The two cousins joined up with O'Connell, who comes from a long line of (illicit) distillers. The operation started in Denis' house with 2 small stills brought from a schnapps producer in Switzerland. and it wasn't until 2014 that they expanded considerably and moved to Market Street in Skibbereen, making much of the equipment by hand as the need arose. A new distillery opened its doors in 2020 on Marsh Road in the same town.
The Marsh Road distillery has a capacity of 4mln liters of pure alcohol and currently staffs over 80 people, making it the largest family-owned Irish distillery. 8 pot stills and 2 column stills are currently running, with additional 3 stills dedicated to the production of gin. With 5 bottling lines operating non-stop, they produce 2,000 bottles per hour. 7 on-site warehouses store up to 55,000 casks of spirits. They aim to keep expanding while adopting sustainable practices and sourcing local ingredients wherever possible.
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
The nose opens with sweet and floral aromas, along with green apple. There's more apple on the slightly earthy palate with malt, honey, cracked nuts, and mild baking spice. The spice and nuttiness linger on the finish.
