A blend of Irish Single Malts and grain Whiskies aged in Bourbon barrels and finished for six months in Sherry casks.

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.

The Whistler Distillers Select Double Oaked is a blend triple-distilled Irish Single Malt and grain Whiskies from across Ireland — each one hand-selected by Michael Walsh, the head distiller at Boann. All of the Spirits were aged in ex-Bourbon casks for a minimum of three years and brought to the Boann facility where they were transferred to Oloroso Sherry casks to marry and finish for six months. The process makes for a mighty good dram with a deep complexity and powerful, classic aroma.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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 Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
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.
