AN ODYSSEY OF ODDITIES
Two distinguished families, a new kind of Irish whiskey and a place of inaccessible mystery. Discover the story of Lambay Whiskey.
As the COVID-19 public health crisis changes our lives, more and more people are becoming isolated by having to practice social distancing — staying home and limiting interactions with others as much as possible. At Lambay Irish Whiskey Company, we’re doing the same, with our staff working remotely. It puts a crimp in some activities, like tastings, island visits and bar nights but it’s the right decision for everyone’s health. Even while practising social distancing, we can support each other and enjoy a dram or two, responsibly of course!
The coming days and weeks will see our country coming back to life slowly, and it will be hard for all of us who enjoy gathering with friends around a good drop of our golden nectar in our local bars. But social distancing doesn’t have to be miserable. Keep an eye on our News page for upcoming events and stories to keep you entertained.
Here’s what’s happening:
Join us on May 30th for the hottest virtual ticket in town at the SummertonWhisky Festival where Lambay along with a host of great whiskey brands are live on stream from 12.30 pm. Book your ticket now!
How you can support distilleries, bars, and restaurants while they’re closed
At this difficult time, we ask you to remember to support the many folks who work with whiskey in our industry, from distillery gift shops to whiskey tourism trails, walking tours, and Irish whiskey visitor centres whose livelihoods are affected by recent shutdowns. Consider purchasing gift vouchers for the future that can be redeemed later in the year. A full list of Irish whiskey visitor centres is here.
Support your local off-licences and the local community in keeping the industry alive with small gestures for us all to rise once more when this ends, and it will pass!
While spending more time than ever at home, perhaps now is a good time to start a new podcast? Check out our recommended list of whiskey podcasts here.
From all of us to you,
Stay safe and stay well and hoping to see you soon!
Once upon a rather unusual island, two friends from two very old families had a rather ingenious idea. They’d make a whiskey. But not just any Irish whiskey – our passion lies in wood maturation, and the art of blending and finishing. Inspired by the private island of Lambay, ancestral home of the Baring family, and finished with the techniques and expertise of Cognac House Camus, ancestral home of Cyril Camus.
We’ve blended the centuries-old distilling expertise of Irish Whiskey making with the century-old blending and maturing expertise of House Camus to create this unique and unusual range of Irish Whiskey’s.
