About The Craft Irish Whiskey Company

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. is committed to crafting whiskeys as they would have been crafted by our forefathers, using traditional methods but adding our own expertise and scientific understanding, along with an obsessive attention to detail and pursuit of perfection. Most whiskeys are mass-produced, with companies, for purposes of cost efficiency, using methods that prioritise quantity over quality. Our whiskeys are different. We spare no expense to honour the craft; drawing on a skilled knowledge of wood, climate, and science to take the whiskey on a journey.

Where other companies place a spirit in a barrel and leave it, our process is a craft. Every element is considered, there is no formula. Using innovative methods, we take a fluid, personalised approach to every step. We use smaller barrels as the science shows these add a greater proportion of flavour. We underfill those barrels to allow maturation to start from day one rather than waiting for the “angel’s share” to evaporate and trigger oxidation. Where others add water before bottling, we add it before maturation and bottle at cask strength to preserve the rich, rounded notes imparted by the barrel.

The company was incorporated in November 2018, with our first whiskey, The Devil’s Keep, released in November 2020. This rare, triple distilled single malt had been aged across Hungarian, American and French Oak casks for peerless bourbon, tawny port and stave-toasted accents. It sold out in record time, with a bottle selling at auction in November 2020 for $60,000, making it the most expensive inaugural release whiskey in the world and breaking a record previously held by Scottish whiskey makers, Nc’nean.

In 2021 our second release, The Emerald Isle - a collaboration with Fabergé - became the world’s most expensive whiskey ever sold when it fetched $2m at auction in the US, overtaking The Macallan Fine and Rare 60-Year-Old which sold in 2019 for $1.9m. In 2021, the company was the most design-awarded company of 2021 and the most awarded new company of the year, winning seventeen awards across taste and design for all four releases.
