We are big fans of Irish whiskey, and as a historic whiskey-producing nation they offer a unique and beautiful spirit completely distinct from their Scotch cousins. Irish whiskey is currently seeing unparalleled global popularity and growth as a category, more than any other spirit sector.
Tomoka has secured a limited number of barrels from the newer of the Irish distillers, Dublin Liberties, who are nestled in the heart of Dublin. Like Scotch, Irish whiskey has endured many tough years over the past century. As a result there is a chronic shortage of mature stock with only a small percentage of whiskey on the market older than 15 years.
Created by the Master Distiller Darryl McNally, one of the world’s most skilful distillers, the Dublin Liberties Distillery whiskies combines inspiration from the past with innovative new techniques. Darryl was awarded “Distillery Manager of the Year” in Ireland’s Icons of Whisky 2020, just another award to add to his growing accolades.
Formally of Bushmills distillery and one of only a few Master Distillers, Darryl is someone we are proud to include in the Tomoka Casks portfolio. Crafted from malted barley and aged in American Bourbon barrels, his inspiring whiskies have won a wealth of awards including a gold medal at the Irish Whiskey Masters in 2019.
