The Inish Turk Beg single malt takes its name from the island of the same name which means ‘small island of the boar’. It is one of the many islands in Clew Bay on the Mayo coast. This whiskey is unique in that a final maturation was done in poitin barrels on the island itself. There were just 2888 bottles made of this ‘Maiden Voyage’ edition and to reflect the sea voyage of the barrels each hand blown bottle resembles a mooring buoy. “Situated off the wild, Atlantic, west coast of Ireland in County Mayo, the island of Inish Turk Beg is a place of outstanding natural beauty, constantly changing vistas and rugged land and seascapes. It’s a place of natural invigoration and inspiration where we enjoy ‘Life Vividly Lived’.
