About the Connacht Whiskey Company

The independently owned Connacht Distillery is in Ballina, County Mayo, on the banks of the lovely River Moy and only a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The Connacht Distillery is producing and aging its own Irish whiskey on site. It also produces Conncullin Irish Gin, Brothership Blended Irish-American Whiskey, Straw Boys Irish Vodka, Straw Boys Irish Poitin, and Spade&Bushel Irish Whiskey.
