Founded by husband and wife Nickolas and Violetta Boyle, the distillery is located in County Louth, Ireland.
Nickolas Boyle said: “When we moved here shortly after our daughter was born, we just fell in love with its beauty and the people.
“The area offers the perfect balance of seclusion and tourism for our operation to thrive. We love it here and want to make our future here.
“We have received a huge amount of support since coming here, we have been blown away by how amazing this community has been to us.”
