  • Boann Distillery

Just south of the port town of Drogheda, Boann Distillery is a family company, born and believed in by Patrick and Marie Cooney, along with their family; Sally-Anne, Celestine, Peter, Patrick and James.

With a combined wealth of experience, including forty years in the Irish drinks industry building up the Gleeson Group from a small independent bottler to a company with a turnover in excess of €300 million per annum, the Cooney family understands what it takes to create successful, premium brands. Their specially designed and distinctive nano-copper pot stills and fine oak cask cellars, ensure they produce a whiskey of distinct character with a real sense of place. 

In 2020 Boann Distillery picked up two fantastic awards at the World Whiskey Awards: "Best Irish Single Malts 12 & under" for their The Whistler 7-Year-Old Blue Note Single Malt and a Gold Medal Winner "Blended Limited Release" for their The Whistler Calvados Cask Finished Blend. Not long after they won “Best Irish Honey” and “World’s Best Honey Liqueur” at the World Drinks Awards 2020!
