80% of Whiskey's Flavour Comes from the Barrel It is Aged in and the Climate Where That Barrel Is Stored
Our approach to ageing, just like our approach to farming, is to work hand in hand with Nature. The Irish weather is renowned for its unpredictability and tendency to change. Its common here on the west coast of Ireland to experience four seasons in one day. Our farm right on the Wild Atlantic Way where our first Rackhouse is located has its own unique microclimate. Only one mile "as the crow flies" from the Atlantic Ocean the air is tinged with brine and the temperature can fluctuate wildly throughout the day. Not so great for a biking holiday but fantastic for ageing Whiskey. We won't know for a few years just how our whiskey is going to be, but we are willing to wait.
