Cuckoo Whiskeymakers

Like the cuckoo who uses other birds nests, we've been fortunate to have the use of facilities at Carlow Brewing Company. To date we have had two blending and bottling runs.

Our initial foray into indie whiskey bottling. We bottled our inaugural version of the Bird from this run.
