From Grain to Glass, Limerick Whiskey
THE ALCHEMIST GUILD
Each year we work with a local farmer to grow our crops of Limerick Grown Barley, every harvest the crop yields a different result, from Protein levels to moisture levels, making each vintage of our whiskey different.
After the crop is harvested, we need to work fast, making sure that the crop is the correct moisture, allowing it to be stored for the months ahead. The Grains are dried and cleaned and stored in Silos until ready for their next step.
The grain is transported to Great Northern Distillery where it is used to make our Single Pot Still & Single Malt New make. This unmatured whiskey is filled into casks selected to complement the spirit allowing it to take on characteristics from the wood and mellow over time though the influence of the seasons.
