The country of Cork is situated on the southern coast of Ireland. There is also the small village of Skibbereen with the river Ilen. In 2007 three good friends joined forces and built up the West Cork Distillery - a small independent whiskey distillery. As usual with other West Cork bottlings, this whiskey is also distilled three times. To create a better effect between the copper, the pot stills and of course the rising steam, the West Cork stills are only half filled. West Cork STOUT CASK FINISH Irish Blended Whiskey matures in first-fill bourbon casks and gets a very special finish in so-called Black's Stout Beer Casks.
