Unlock The Prestige - Master Blender Yonael Bernard
Master Blender and Cellar Master- Yonael Bernard.
A triple-distilled, bourbon barrel matured blended whiskey, finished in cognac casks carried across the sea from the world-renowned cellars of Cognac House Camus. Lambay’s own volcanic Trinity Well water is added at the final stage before bottling, this is a whiskey as unique as the island that inspires it.
Rare in the world of Irish whiskey, this is a unique blend of at least three single malts, double & triple distilled, bourbon barrel matured, and masterfully blended before finishing in Lambay’s signature cognac-cask style. For the final flourish before bottling, water is added from Lambay's Trinity Well volcanic spring.
Batch 01 Single malt is the first of a new three-part collection called Reserve Cask Series released in 2022 and limited to just 10,000 bottles. Triple distilled, bourbon barrel matured, and cognac-cask finished before crafting with Lambay Trinity Well water. A truly distinctive taste experience, that takes you on a journey of sea, island, and cask, from the first sip to the last.
Crafted and highly exclusive, this Single Cask Strength expression of Lambay Whiskey Single Malt is a pure taste of island life and is continually appreciated by whiskey collectors as each batch bottling is released.
Introducing Cask 7494, batch 05 from our limited edition triple-distilled single malt, bourbon barrel matured and finished in hand-selected cognac casks in our Sea Cask Room on Lambay. This cask strength wholly influenced by the sea, reflects the exceptional cognac influence and finishing skills of our Master Blender.
Access to Lambay is very limited as it is a private island and usually visitors are welcomed by invitation only. Lambay Whiskey does not have an operating distillery (yet!) or visitor centre on the island, only our bonded warehouse which is not open to the public.
However, we often receive inquiries from locals and tourists alike on how they can come and visit Lambay and we advise checking in with local guide Eamonn Mc Grattan from www.fishandtrips.ie
A walking tour of Lambay and an island viewing from the sea by boat, is indeed a treat when viewing the wildlife and the season is usually from April - October. Weather permitting, this is a five-hour Lambay guided walking tour to see the wildlife and scenery as well as the external of some of the various buildings most weekends.
Once upon a most unusual island, two entrepreneurial spirits from two very old families decided to form a unique partnership. Together, they’d make an Irish whiskey. But not just any whiskey – theirs would be one of dynasty and devilment, of rarity and refinement, unique tasting, and masterfully crafted.
Their idea was to create an innovative Irish whiskey inspired by the island of Lambay, the ancestral home of Alexander Baring , and finished with the techniques and expertise of Maison Camus, the ancestral home of Cyril Camus, Cognac.
Lambay Irish Whiskey is proud to be a member and verified in Ireland’s Origin Green Sustainability Program.
That means our commitment toward sustainability and following environmentally friendly practices to produce remarkable, premium Irish spirits, is the core of our business and understanding of who we are and what we stand for.
