Drombeg Premium Irish Spirit

Craft brewing is currently enjoying a huge revival in Ireland, and some small craft distilleries are also opening for the first time in many years.


West Cork Distillers in Union Hall was established in 2008 by childhood friends John O'Connell, Dennis McCarthy and Gerard McCarthy, who elisted the assistance of the former master blender at Irish Distillers, Dr Barry Walsh.


Using local spring water and utilising a unique proprietary oak wood maturation method, they produced a premium brown spirit like a low alcohol (22% ABV) whiskey. They named their first product Drombeg, after Ireland’s oldest stone circle which is near Union Hall, and other more recent products are also named with personal and local connections in mind (Kennedy and Lough Hyne).


Drombeg can be drunk neat, over ice, as a long drink with a mixer, or with other drinks in a cocktail. Barry & Fitzwillliam Ltd, Cork, are distributors
