Welcome to Ballykeefe Distillery
The Birthplace of Irish Whiskey

100% Self Sustainable
We are proudly, and intentionally eco-friendly
The opening of the first whiskey distillery in over 200 years in the medevial capital of Ireland, also restores a historical Irish custom of family farm distilleries from centuries past. Barley is grown on the farm, pure spring water comes from an aquifer on the property, and by-products of the distillation are fed to the farm cattle. There is thus no off-farm waste to contaminate the environment. This unique system is a perfect example of a 100% sustainable operation. We call it ‘Our Field to Your Glass’.
