Craft Irish Whiskey
BEFORE WHISKEY WAS ANYTHING ELSE, IT WAS IRISH.
For 700 years, Irish distillers perfected the whiskey maker’s art - Irish flavour, strength and character defined its excellence - much like the spirit of Ireland's iconic polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
The 'water of life' is synonymous with the Heroic Age of Exploration, a warming elixir for the soul during many an expedition.
By combining the historic art of craft whiskey making with 21st century science, we elevate and perfect. In honour of Antarctica's icy expanse and a nod to the purest water found on Earth, White Desert and Craft Irish Whiskey will be announcing a very special release...Discover Craft Irish Whiskey
