Athru Oloroso Single Cask Release 


A beautiful and exciting sip to enjoy as the nights grow longer. For this latest single cask expression, it spent 6 years in an Oloroso sherry barrel from a bodega in Spain. This luxurious, creamy smooth expression is jam-packed with red fruit flavours and spices. It has been bottled at cask strength (an impressive 59.2%!) and has naturally not been chill-filtered. This is a very limited bottling of just 295 bottles released so it won’t be around for long! 


Alc 59.2% Price €95.00


Dingle Single Malt Batch 6


Dingle Single Malt Batch 6 has been matured exclusively in Tawny Port cask, to bring you the perfect marriage between whiskey and fortified wine. An incredible multi-layered whiskey with well-balanced flavours of gingerbread, redcurrant jelly and crushed cranberries. The perfect addition to anyone's whiskey collection! 


Alc 46.5% Price €70.00


Waterford Biodynamic Luna  1:1

Waterford Distillery presents the FIRST ever biodynamic Irish whiskey with the Waterford Biodynamic Luna 1.1. Inspired by the cycles of the moon, it's made from pure biodynamic barley. Fruity and herbal on the nose with a spicy palate of peppers, cloves, and jalapenos, it has a long-lasting minty finish. A delicious option to enjoy this autumn. 

Alc 50% Price €89




Renegade Rum Pre Cask Dunfermline Pot Still 


A pot still rum from the Renegade distillery in Grenada. This uses sugar cane sourced from the estate known as 'Dunfermline' which nestles on the slopes of the St Andrews mountains on the island's north east coast. Dunfermline was once home to a distillery which was unfortunately lost to hurricane Ivan in 2004. The soil is ideal for sugar cane cultivation (clay loam) and this particular expression is made using free run cane juice from the Lacalome Red variety grown on the 'Mango Lane' terroir. This is rum in its most natural state. Powerful and pungent with strong flavours and lots of personality!  


Alc 50% Price €55


Etsu Deep Ocean Gin 


Created from this sea and mountain range that Etsu Pacific Ocean Water draws its natural flavours. Fresh water from the mountain source and sea water from the Sea of Japan are added to carefully selected botanicals, such as juniper berries, bitter orange peel, liquorice root, angelica and coriander to produce this unique gin, which captures the Japanese coast line in a bottle. Refreshing an vibrant the perfect Friday night gin! 


Alc 45% Price €47.50


Copeland Raspberry & Mint Gin



Copeland Gin is a unique handcrafted infusion of locally sourced fruits with premium spirit. The botanicals in the base gin have been carefully selected to complement the local fruit botanicals which are sourced from the fields of County Down. The result is a natural ‘ginfusion’ which not only tastes great but has the added benefit of supporting local farmers and producers! The raspberry presents a sweet twist with the heated herb finish from the mint. Enjoy as a classic G&T or (if you're feeling fancy) with a drop of prosecco. 


Alc 37.8% Price €40.00


Craft Cocktail Spicy Margarita 70cl


Why not ring in the three-day weekend with this fiery twist on a Craft Cocktail classic!
