WCD is the most southerly located distillery on the Atlantic Archipelago which provides a unique meso-thermal microclimate for which West Cork is famous and which is ideal for the maturation of Irish whiskey.
Inspired by West Cork’s proud history in artisan food & beverage production, three life long friends set about establishing a distillery to produce the highest quality spirits & provide sustainable employment in this beautiful and remote part of Ireland.
West Cork Distillers only uses spring water in the production of its Irish whiskey (i.e. no treated municipal water is used).
The distillery at West Cork is very unique in that most of the mashing, fermentation & distilling equipment was handcrafted on site by the team at West Cork Distillers.
