Here's an interesting story of a enterprising couple getting in touch with their Irish roots.

Or is it jumping on the bandwagon.

http://www.kansascity.com/living/food-d ... 75812.html

How many breaches or the current Irish Whiskey Association regulations? and a couple of possible US breaches too.

They gave the wrong date for that auction. It's on the 19th in Adams.

While not exactly news ,I recently came across a listing for ... AENEAS COFFEY WHISKEY COMPANY LTD, 409 SEACOAST ROAD, LIMAVADY, DERRY. . looking further to see if they had any registered trademarks I found that another co Rosc & co Ltd.of Conkey & Co,105 Main St Portrush, have registered the following well known trademarks to themselves ...
Nun's Island,
Persse,( refused)
H.S.Persse,
Cromac,
Aeneas Coffey,
Nicholas Devereux.
Can't imagine any of them seeing the light of day. Looking at the both of the addresses ,they are not exactly great sites for a distillery.

Paddy Irish Whiskey is being sold to Sazerac. The whiskey will still be made in Midleton for the time being.

This story was posted here but was lost when the site broke down last week.
Here's a link to the story. More will follow in time.

Great news Charley. I'm looking forward to the proposed Wexford one. I'm told the 1798 centre is an option.

I have mixed feelings about this. It's a great shame that the 1798 centre is to be closed . For visitor footfall it was just in the wrong place and unless it is moved to somewhere more central the same problem will apply to a distillery, any one of the quayside maltstores/warehouses would have been a better bet.

Looks like the Bally Keefe Distillery in Co Kilkenny is well on it's way . The stills are real beauties and somewhat surprised me ,as I thought that it was to be a smaller operation as the planning referred to an annual production of 25 barrels. I posted the links below to the planning docs back in Oct 2015. The docs were very short on information.

Very nice stills indeed and thanks for sharing. Remind me of Laphroaigs stills for some reason.

Cheers Charlie :thumbsup:
