Welcome to West Cork Distillers, a company founded in 2008 in Union Hall, West Cork, Ireland, by three good friends who were inspired by the true character of West Cork and a lifelong desire to make the best Spirits in the world. The Kennedy name is part of their heritage and two of them were deep sea fishermen all their lives.
It was their friendship that began them on the voyage to make the best Irish owned Spirits in the world:
“We aim to be a centre of excellence for the distillation of brown spirits, and to deliver innovative products to meet and stimulate international market demand.”
This story was born in the small fishing village of Union Hall in West Cork, Ireland out of a deep love and passion for the ancient art of distilling, which actually first originated in Ireland hundreds of years ago. Enjoying a drink with good friends is a very old and timeless experience. One of the most important things in life is strong and lasting friendship and the company you keep by your side.
