188 cask ownership club
The Wild Atlantic Distillery is offering a limited number of 188 casks to reserve for private investors. The casks are a limited-edition unique offering, inspired by the Wild Atlantic Way.
The Whiskey is made and produced at Wild Atlantic Distilleries using locally sourced premium ingredients. It is distilled in our handmade copper pot still using a combination of traditional and modern skills to produce an exceptional spirit that will become your Private Single Cask Whiskey. So, you can be certain of consistent, premium spirit in every cask.
We hand select and source the very best oak casks (with full traceability) to ensure the right type of maturation. Our New Make Spirit has the finest and most exiting cask finishes, full maturation in Bourbon, Sherry, Port, Wine and Rum casks.
Each cask will be named after a specific point along Irelands most spectacular coastal route. Casks will be labelled and bottled bearing the name of these points, a unique expression of Irelands Whiskey making traditions.
