  • Brian Nation and Patrick O'Shaughnessy from O'Shaughnessy Distilling Company
    *Now with improved audio* We caught up with Brian Nation and Patrick O'Shaughnessy during their whistle-stop tour of Ireland. A big milestone for the distillery, this was their launch of their first whiskeys which are named Keeper's Heart Irish + Bourbon and Keeper's Heart Irish + American. We conducted this interview in the Celtic Whiskey Shop the day after a great tasting event organised by the shop and held in Lost Lane. There's a great story to hear in the episode and a great future ahead for the team at the distillery. Brian will be back to host a Masterclass at whiskeylivedublin.com. Go to the link below for ticket to that session, and to the second link to find the new whiskeys on our site. https://www.whiskeylivedublin.com/master-classes.html https://www.celticwhiskeyshop.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=keeper%20heart --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/celtic-whiskey-pod/message

  • Oisín Mulcahy- Head Distillery and Blender at Clonakilty Distillery
    It was well overdue that we talked to Clonakilty Distillery to find out all about the distillery and their award winning spirit. Housed in a building that was originally meant to be a bank, it has been making spirit since 2019 and in theory is now old enough to be released as whiskey. Oisín joined the team in 2022 and has been very involved in all aspects of production. We talk in the podcast about his own journey through whiskey, and the farm to glass aspect of Clonakilty. Then about maturation of the spirit whether that be the new make, mature stock or sourced stock from elsewhere. Plus, or course, a lot more. It could be time to taste some 4 year old whiskey from Clonakilty, will we see that this year? Listen on to find out.  --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/celtic-whiskey-pod/message

  • Michael D'Souza and Paul John Distillery
    India is one of the most exciting emerging producers of single malt whisky. It is a country that consumes an incredible amount of whisky but that is mostly domestic blends and a number of Scottish blended whiskies. On the international market it is a different story and malt whisk(e)y drinkers across the world are slowly discovering that India has something new to offer, with a broad range of flavour profiles and expressions to be enjoyed. Paul John Distillery are one of the international trail blazers, and Al was fortunate to speak to head distiller Michael D'Souza about the formation of the distillery, the company and the diverse range of single malts they produce. Having won over 300 international whisky awards it is clear that something special is happening at their distillery in Goa.

  • Crolly Distillery with Brendan McBride
    In episode 6 of series 2 Al Higgins speaks to Brendan McBride from the Crolly/Croithlí distillery in Donegal. We first sampled the new releases from Crolly at Whiskey Live in June this year and were impressed by their new approach of ageing their whiskeys in different species of oak. Yes, it's been done in various guises as seperate releases from other distillers, but Crolly have aged three identical whiskeys simultaneously in three different oak species and released them at the same time. This gives the consumer a great chance to see what each species brings to the whiskey and offers something new for us all to experience! A sample of their new make spirit fresh off their unusual Cognac stills also caught our attention. Listen on to hear about a release date for that. Crolly's situation in a fairly remote corner of Donegal means we havent yet had a chance to visit the distillery, nor I suspect have most of our listeners. So, hopefully this episode will serve as a taster and give you an impression of what is happening at this unique distillery.  --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/celtic-whiskey-pod/message
