A Special Place Steeped in Legend and History
Our business is based on the McGuane family farm, located on the Wild West Coast of Ireland in the beautiful county Clare. The farm has been in the McGuane family for generations and is still farmed today by P.J. our founder's father. We keep a herd of 50 dairy cows and about 30 cattle depending on how good a year it is.
Peat Bog & Faerie Folk
The farm boasts not only its own Peat Bog, which we have great future plans for, but also plays host to what is known locally as a "Fairy Fort." This mystic earth mounds found all over County Clare are said to be the dwelling places of the 'Little Folk.' We like to think that they will keep a watchful eye over our sleeping whiskey.
Independence Has Always Mattered Here
We know from family legend that the farm was known as a safe haven for Rebels and Freedom Fighters during Ireland's turbulent past. This was confirmed when, during a renovation, we found a FlinkLock Pistol, hidden in the rafters of our barn. It does not seem that the weapon was ever needed and it was long forgotten, we have had it dated to 1790!
