Real Irish Whiskey infused with honey from the Cooley Family farm delivers a rich, butterscotch flavor profile.

Patrick Cooney knows Irish Spirits. He and his brother Nicholas purchased Gleeson — building the beverage-maker through organic growth and acquisitions to a nine-figure Irish giant. Patrick sold Gleeson in 2012 and has turned the family’s attention toward a new legacy — the Na Cuana beverage company and the Boann Distillery. It’s a true family business with his wife Marie, his daughters Sally-Anne and Celestine, and their sons Peter, Patrick, and James. Thier brands include Adams Ciders, Boyne Brewhouse Craft Beer, Robert A. Murray Irish Cream Liqueurs, and The Whistler Irish Whiskies.

On the Cooley Family farm, there are beekeepers. This makes total sense — it’s fairly common for farms and orchards to want to ensure the pollination of crops. So, they keep colonies of honeybees around to do just that. The Whistler Beekeepers Select Irish Honey is the perfect Whiskey collaboration between the Cooley Family’s distillery and the honey produced on their farm. It’s made by infusing honey into Irish Whiskey matured in ex-Bourbon casks. This sweet dram is bottled at 33% ABV and could be the best Honey Whiskey in the world, bar none. The judges at the World Liqueur Awards think so.

Boann is extremely environmentally conscious. Operating on a closed loop system for water, they recycle all of their input water. The heat generated in the production process helps run their packaging lines and will heat their restaurant, visitor center and offices. Even the grain bi-products of their distillation are used as animal feed.
The Boann Master Distiller, John McDougall, is an internationally renowned master distiller and consultant. He has been head distiller at The Balvenie, Laphroaig, Springbank, Tormore and Plymouth Gin. He is the only man alive to have distilled all five types of Scotch Whisky and also Irish Whiskey.
The Boann Distillery is the first distillery to open in the area in 50 years. Also incorporating the Boyne Brewhouse craft brewery, their visitor center will have its own bar and restaurant. They will also be crafting a very special Gin, incorporating local hedgerow botanicals, from their small specially commissioned Bennett Gin still.
