Our Story

A Tale of Time & Tides

Two distinguished families, a new kind of Irish whiskey, and a place of inaccessible mystery. Once upon a most unusual island, two entrepreneurial spirits from two very old families decided to form a unique partnership. Together, they’d make a whiskey. But not just any whiskey – their triple distilled Irish whiskey would be one of dynasty and devilment, of rarity and refinement.

Their idea was to craft an innovative Irish whiskey inspired by the island of Lambay, ancestral home of Alexander Baring, and finished with the techniques and expertise of Maison Camus, ancestral home of Cyril.

Alexander Baring hails from the peculiar paradise of Lambay Island, a mere three miles off the coast of Dublin. Lambay Island, a veritable odyssey of oddities, is also home to a herd of grazing cattle, an improbability of puffins and an even more improbable troupe of red-necked wallabies.

The entrepreneurial Cyril Camus, is part of the fifth generation of Maison Camus, that illustrious French family famous the world over for their incomparable Cognac. Bonded by a love of nature and the finer things in life, Cyril and Alexander make the perfect partners in whiskey production.
