Cooraclare

 

JJ Corry, Who Are They?

Located just 40 minute’s drive from our Castle JJ Corry have worked very closely with us to develop a superb whisky experience for our guests. The vision of JJ Corry is to respect tradition but embrace change. They aim to resurrect the lost art of Irish Whiskey Bonding and seek to emulate the conditions of ageing and blending used by Irish Whiskey Bonders of old while still applying modern day know-how. JJ Corry want to bring back the lost flavours of Independent Irish Whiskey, while bringing unique flavours to market for the modern whiskey drinker.

The Farm Experience 

The warm welcome from the McGuane family to their beautiful farm goes without saying awaits all our guests from the Castle. The distillery is located within a 15th century barn, one of the McGuane expert guides shares insights into the history of whiskey bonding in County Clare, the Irish whiskey bonding tradition and about the namesake, JJ Corry, who enjoyed a thriving whiskey bonding business in the county during the 18th century.
Within the purpose-built bonded warehouse, you can breathe in the scent of wooden casks full of maturing whiskey. Guests will be able to discover the secrets
behind the flavours of JJ Corry whiskey and the different maturation techniques.
Of course to finish off this visit our guests get to enjoy a tasting of three specially selected JJ Corry whiskey blends.
