The Boatyard Distillery is an award winning farm-to-bottle distillery located on the banks of Lough Erne in north west Ireland. Only the best organic ingredients are chosen by the distillery with the terroir of the land at the forefront of each new spirit.
Founder, Joe McGirr, has utilised his background in spirits and whisky knowledge to build his dream of the first legal distillery in Fermanagh in over 130 years. Joe’s dream to build a distillery in the place in which he grew up was inspired by his family’s rich farming history - from grandad Brian who was a ploughing contractor to father Michael who was a dairy and beef farmer. “It’s great to now be able to give something back to the land; all of our spent grain from our spirits go back to the land and the cows and we claim the happiest cows in Ireland!”
The Irish wheat used for this spectacular vodka is carefully selected from some of the best growers in Ireland. Boatyard’s seed-to-sip ethos means that they can trace the wheat used in each individual bottle back to the farmer who grew it and even the field in which it was grown. This approach gives this small batch Irish vodka a unique and complex flavour.
Boatyard do not filter their spirit at all, this allows you to enjoy the unique flavour of the Irish grain vodka in the way that it was intended – pure and unedited.
Soft vanilla and white pepper, with a touch of cut grass. Light lemon peel and freshly baked sour dough. Subtly oily, creamy palate with hint of cocoa nib bitterness on the finish.
