connacht single malt No Malarkey!


Euro (€)

This is a special labelling of our Batch 1 whiskey to celebrate the visit of President Joe Biden to his ancestral home of Ballina, also home to the Connacht Distillery. Given the deep connections of our founders to both the United States and Pennsylvania, this is a special day for both the town of Ballina and for Connacht Distillery.

The limited release labelling features Joe Biden’s ‘No Malarkey!’ catchphrase and the date of his visit to our hometown, it’s a genuine collector’s item to honour the 46th President of the USA.

Batch 1 is the first whiskey to come off our own copper pot stills. it has been patiently matured for over four years, when our distillers judged it to be ready for appreciation by whiskey lovers.

This small batch, double distilled single malt is made from 100% malted Irish barley, aged in ex-bourbon casks and finished in ex-oloroso sherry casks.
