The Shed Distillery opened in December 2014 in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim, in the heart of rural Ireland, making history as the first distillery in the Northwestern province of Connacht in over 100 years.
Drumshanbo Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is the first global release from The Shed Distillery of PJ Rigney. The whiskey is triple distilled and non-chill filtered using malted and un-malted Irish barley and Irish barra oats. The unusual inclusion of barra oats gives the whisky depth and an elegant, creamy texture. Every drop is made at the distillery, the first to be opened in Connaught in over 100 years, with Head Distiller Brian Taft tasting and hand-selecting every single cask, guaranteeing absolute consistency in each bottle. Three copper pot stills distil around one cask of spirit each day, making it truly small batch. The whiskey is then aged in Kentucky Bourbon and Sherry Oloroso casks with no added colourings, ensuring that the whiskey is smooth and elegant with subtle notes of spice.
