“Copeland Over-Proof Rum is inspired by the events of 14 August 1815, when the brig ‘Andrew Savage’, originally from Portaferry, landed home with fine rum from Belfast Bay in Antigua. It could be seen for days ahead of its landing with the newspaper reporting that it expected most of the cargo to safely land in Donaghadee’s coves and tunnels along the coastline for lucky folks to enjoy. A sophisticated rum that relies on a double pot distillation over 10-14 days, Copeland’s Overproof Rum is bottled at 57.2% and boasts pleasantly familiar aromas such as corner shop ice-cream and candied orange....
The first gin to be distilled in Co. Donegal. Dúlamán is the name of an Irish folk song which relates a conversation between two seaweed collectors (it is also the name of one of our gin seaweeds). The coast around Sliabh Liag holds an extraordinary bounty for such foragers with their centuries-old knowledge of harvesting and harnessing the qualities of these natural products. An Dúlamán bottles are reminiscent of those found along the Donegal coast during the wrecks of the Spanish Armada. Each bottle is wax sealed and the batch number is linked to the lunar phases. To make An...
“Smugglers’ Reserve is inspired by clandestine smuggling activities that took place along the Copeland Islands throughout the 18th and 19th century and gives honour to the contrabandists that brought tastes of new worlds to Co Down’s shores.
With fulfilling notes of warm, sweet spices and gingerbread, perfectly-paired with piquant flavours like banana coconut, this luxurious Irish Rum is the result of a clever marriage of Copeland’s heavy pot-still rum and its light rum along with a Barbados rum. “

10-Year-Old is the original Laphroaig, distilled the same way today as when Ian Hunter invented it more than 75 years ago. In making Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat, found only on Islay, gives the whisky its particularly rich flavour. Bold smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness. This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish. The most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies. Distilled on the remote island of Islay off the West Coast of Scotland.
Manzanilla is the driest of the dry sherries and is matured in the soleras of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Flor, a layer of yeast in the barrel that protects the wine against oxidisation, thrives in this maritime climate and lends the wine its tangy character. Incredibly fresh, with a salty, tangy character reminiscent of a sea breeze. A complex, nutty palate and crisp, palate-cleansing finish. Treat like a white wine and serve chilled in a normal wine glass, if you don't have a copita handy. A must-have with tapas.
A delightful single pot still Irish whiskey, Redbreast 12 Year Old is highly praised by Jim Murray and a host of other notable critics.

Fantastic multi-award-winning whiskey!
