Clear Island Distillery.

Let's talk whiskey.

Clear Island Distillery.

Postby Good Whiskey Hunting » Wed Oct 14, 2015 2:32 am

I read in West Cork Times that there's a distillery planed for Clear Island in West Cork. They plan to have a visitor centre too.

Great new for the people in West Cork to get a distillery. I hope they get the planning and start up. There was a distillery planned for Horse Island a few years back but didn't go ahead.

I look forward to visiting them when they are up and running, that's if they'll have me.
