About the Distiller:
Limavady comes from the Gaelic Leim an Mhadaidh (The Leap of the Dog).
Venture 100 km Northwest of Belfast and you’ll find the town of Limavady tucked away in the Roe Valley, its coastal climate and fertile land the perfect setting for Irish whiskey production, which began in 1750 at the Limavady Distillery. At its peak, the distillery was producing 1.2 million litres per annum, every bottle a postcard from the town to whiskey drinkers across the world. Of course, nothing worth having comes easy, and in the 1910s the Limavady Distillery was shuttered during the global downfall of Irish whiskey. The years passed. Experience became memory, memory became legend. From that legend sprang an idea, and the new Limavady Whiskey was born.

"Aromas of minerality, vanilla fudge, zested lime, barley sugar, rosewater, and white pepper. It spills sweet flavors of butterscotch, barley sugar, and candied orange peel over the tongue, pursued by a stealthy rise in pepperiness, and ending with a throat-coating finish of baked orange, burnt sugar, and Kit Kat. This is small batch, triple distilled merriment."
