Your Very Own Loch Measc Irish Whiskey Cask
Posted in Connect on February 27, 2019.
Lough Mask Distillery is making available a very limited number of our Inaugural Year Whiskey Casks for sale.
These casks will be filled only from our first years’ whiskey production. Cask owners can have their whiskey bottled and labelled with their own bespoke labels once the spirit has matured.
Co founder and Head Distiller, Eoin Holmes, said: “There is huge interest amongst whiskey enthusiasts, collectors, investors, the Irish diaspora and businesses in purchasing their very own casks of whiskey.”
“This”, Eoin said: “is an opportunity for people to become part of a little bit of Irish distilling history.” “Plus”, he added, “they’ll ultimately be the owners of their own label, very rare, premium Irish Whiskey.”
There has been a resurgence of whiskey distilling in Ireland in the last few years, with millions being invested in high tech mass market production facilities. Lough Mask Distillery is somewhat counter trend, having deliberately gone for a low tech, hand crafted, artisan approach.
“We’re a little bit counter culture here in Mayo – to make something unique and special out here on the edge of the wild Atlantic ye need to have a bit of an edge, not be afraid to go against the grain. Ours is a real artisan distillery. Half the equipment here has been adapted, up-cycled or recycled. Our stills are handmade superb craftspeople and are based on designs that hark back to the dawn of distilling.”
“We really are a micro-distillery, in the best sense of the term. We make tiny quantities of very fine spirit, each batch lovingly made. Thankfully, we are not beholden to the constraints of mass production. We are much freer to pursue flavour, nuance and quality. Even at full production capacity, ours will always be a rare whiskey. The “Inaugural Year Casks”, limited to only 40, will therefore be all the more rare.”
“People like what we’re doing and how we’re going about our whiskey making. They want to be part of it. As evidenced by the success of our Loch Measc Gin and Loch Measc Vodca, we make world class spirit. We have perfected our single malt spirit and we are beginning to lay down casks for ageing”.
“We’ve had enquiries from as far afield as the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Italy, Singapore and Westport! In fact, we’ve already sold a number of casks to investors who have jumped the gun.”
Lough Mask Distillery is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. We overlook Lough Mask from the foothills of the Partry Mountains near Tourmakeady in County Mayo.
