Connacht-Whiskey-CompanyOpened: October 2015

One of the most recent new Irish whiskey distillery openings, The Connacht Whiskey Company is based in County Mayo. The brainchild of three friends – PJ, David, Tom, John and Rob ­– the distillery aims to “bring modern techniques to an old tradition of craft distilling”.

The company plans to release a poitin, gin and range of blended whiskeys using sourced liquid ahead of launching its own single pot still range. It is one of two new distilleries in County Mayo.

    Don’t see how you can ignore the Teeling Whiskey Distillery or The Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk both of whom are in full production compared to some of the 10 who haven’t had a sod turned on their products. Very Strange

    What about the West Cork Distillery in Skibbereen, Cork. Great local business expanding with a fantastic Whiskey portfolio. Also, in FULL PRODUCTION. Not mentioned in either article?
