The Bridge – Tús Maith Irish Whiskey has arrived!

Lough Ree Distillery

Lough Ree Distillery recently released their very first whiskey, fittingly titled The Bridge – Tús Maith Irish Whiskey. A bit of a mouthful to say but alas it’s a tasty mouthful to savour!

While the Lough Ree Distillery is under construction and following the launch of their successful Gins and Vodkas, they have been busy sourcing and ageing some very special whiskies and have released it just in time to fill our Christmas stockings with!

So what awaits over The Bridge?

Well, the new release comes in the form of a warming Single Grain Irish Whiskey, aged for 8 years in Bourbon Casks and beautifully finished in a specially selected Anima Negra Red Wine Cask from Mallorca.

Not only is the whiskey pretty great, so is the thinking behind the releases!

As the Lough Ree Distillery website explains:  ‘The Bridge Series is our path across the bridge that connects us to the point where we’ll be sharing our precious Irish whiskey, distilled on the shores of Lough Ree. As you savour these special releases from The Bridge Series, you are joining us on The Lough Ree Distillery journey’

What an amazing journey that will be and we cant wait to taste the upcoming releases and follow them on that journey.

Lough Ree Distillery is the brainchild of a Longford native, Peter Clancy and in partnership with his brother Michael and his lovely sister, Sheila Mullen, who are building the distillery and visitor centre on the grounds of the old post office building in Lanesborough. It is envisaged that the distillery will attract 20,000 visitors annually through its doors and will create up to 25 full-time jobs.

Another great milestone for this Midlands Distillery and at Midlands Whiskey Experiences, we are eagerly looking forward to the many new whiskey releases to come from the Lough Ree Distillery!

Sláinte and Tús Maith to the Lough Ree Distillery Team!
