It has been 100 years since Limerick had its own whiskey and in memory, we pay homage to the long lost distillery of Thomond Gate which sat on the banks of the River Shannon between 1809 and 1919. The distillery was named after the fortified city gate which in times before the building of John’s Gate in 1494, Thomond Gate was the most important portal in the city. It was the gateway to the western part of the country and was well protected by the Shannon River and King John’s Castle. It linked the counties of both Clare and Limerick. This was known as the Kingdom of Thomond and once ruled over by the High King of Ireland, Brian Boru and Earls of Thomond.
After meticulous research and gems found in the archives of Limerick City, this lost spirit has been lovingly reborn. Our whiskey has been carefully curated and sourced to honour the traditional style of Single Pot Still Irish whiskey, once distilled in Limerick and enjoyed by our past generations. A lost spirit rekindled from the pages of history, our whiskey has been skilfully reborn through careful attention to detail and traditional craftsmanship.
