Single Barrel Irish Whiskey
Single Barrel, Meet Irish Whiskey
Venture 100 km Northwest of Belfast and you’ll find the town of Limavady tucked away in the Roe Valley, its coastal climate and fertile land the perfect setting for Irish whiskey production, which began in 1750 at the Limavady Distillery. At its peak, the distillery was producing 1.2 million litres per annum, every bottle a postcard from the town to whiskey drinkers across the world.
Of course, nothing worth having comes easy, and in the 1910s the Limavady Distillery was shuttered during the global downfall of Irish whiskey.
The years passed. Experience became memory, memory became legend. From that legend sprang an idea, and the new Limavady Whiskey was born.SMALL BATCH 100% MALTED IRISH BARLEY TRIPLE DISTILLED COPPER POT STILLS AGED IN EX-BOURBON BARRELS AND FINISHED IN PX SHERRY CASKS 846 BOTTLES PER BARREL
Limavady comes from the Gaelic Leim an Mhadaidh (The Leap of the Dog).
Under the banner of the leaping dog, our beloved icon of bravery and goodwill, we aim to capture the hearts, minds and palates of a new generation of craft whiskey enthusiasts.
We’re not here to change the world, but we will change a mind or two about Irish Whiskey.
The Master’s Leap
A legend isn’t a legend without a hero, right? Darryl McNally is ours, and rightly so. Born into that small bar outside Limavady and descendant of the original 18th century Limavady distillers, he possessed the passion, determination, and talent to work his way from sweeping distillery floors to earning his place as one of the best damn Whiskey Masters in the world.
Over the last decade, Darryl has created more award-winning whiskeys than we can remember for his employers. Now, the time has come for him to take his leap and go independent, reclaiming the Limavady Whiskey name and putting his years of experience and expertise towards creating a legacy for his family, and his masterpiece.
