Type: Irish Whiskey

We create contemporary innovations and expressions for the pleasure of palates of a new era, using the backdrop of timeworn recipes from Ireland’s golden era of whiskey distilling.

We are whiskey creators with a purpose and enthusiasm to question, create, experiment, challenge and, ultimately, to make things better.

Our philosophy is anchored in the Walsh family motto which is ‘Never Say Die’.

And that resilient attitude, along with our passion, innovation and attention-to-detail drive our family’s dream to create a legacy of whiskey excellence.



Writers' Tears Copper Pot

Writers’ Tears is a unique marriage of Aged Single Pot Still and Single Malt Irish whiskey.

Distilled entirely from barley, both malted and unmalted, this is a truly special Irish Whiskey. Writers’ Tears is triple distilled, non-peated and matured in Flame Charred American Oak bourbon casks.

An award-winning whiskey that has also been included in Ian Buxton’s publication “101 Whiskeys to try before you die”.

Writers' Tears Single Pot Still

Originally matured in bourbon barrels, the triple-distilled, single pot still whiskey, was then further matured in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks from Spain and Florio Marsala Hogsheads from Sicily, before being cut at a juicy 46% ABV.
