The Crafting of Lambay Irish Whiskey

We’ve combined the centuries-old distilling expertise of Irish whiskey making with the century-old blending and maturing expertise of Maison Camus to create this unique and unusual range of whiskeys.

Patrick Léger, our Master Blender from the legendary cognac house Camus, is behind the shaping, polishing and finishing of Lambay Irish Whiskey. To aid in the Lambay Whiskey finishing process, hand-selected charred french oak casks are shipped across the sea from the cellars of Maison Camus. Our Small Batch Blend is matured for a minimum of 4 years in first fill bourbon barrels before being finished in cognac casks. The cognac cask imparts a more intense complexity from the tannins but also more fruit from the residue of the wine in the porous oak.

For Lambay Single Malt, hand selected French oak cognac casks are carried across the sea from Cognac, France and placed in our bonded warehouse – The Sea Cask Room – on Lambay Island.  Time is given to allow subtle maritime notes to be absorbed by these casks and then once again they are removed from the island and masterfully blended before bottling to create Lambay Single Malt.

Finally Lambay Whiskey is crafted using the Island’s own Trinity Well water.
