We are delighted to announce that O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey will be sponsoring Ireland’s Four Star Hotel Category at the Virgin Media Business Gold Medal Awards 2023!

Stafford Bonded are proud to share details of their first release, O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey. Crafted by the direct descendants of the O’Driscoll clan. A tribute to their famous pirate ancestors from Baltimore, West Cork who patrolled Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Coast.

The O’Driscoll’s were men of the sea. They were pirates and smugglers who built castles and harbours and by the fifteenth century were one of the strongest clans in Ireland. It was the wild Atlantic Ocean that was their real domain. O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey is a tribute to those famous men of the sea and encapsulates that wild Atlantic spirit of adventure, bravery, and survival.

An exceptional blend of golden grain and malted barley, triple distilled and aged in bourbon casks for a minimum of 3 years, giving the signature smoothness of Irish whiskey.
Maturation of whiskey is an art form. The influence of 100% bourbon cask maturation beautifully enhances the sweet vanilla profile of O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey.

“We wanted to create an exciting new, pitch perfect, (in name, quality, price and provenance), Irish whiskey, for people who always seek the best.
O’Driscoll’s is a beautifully blended exceptionally smooth Irish Whiskey. O’Driscoll’s is currently the only Irish owned Irish Whiskey in the standard blend category. Inspired by my Grandfather Diarmuid O’Driscoll the O’Driscoll’s were a famous pirate clan from Baltimore, West Cork.”

In terms of sales. Irish whiskey is the second biggest spirit in Ireland. With O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey, our ambition is to introduce people to a premium Irish alternative to the industrially produced multinational Irish whiskey brands. We make it in traditional time-honoured fashion, but our exciting new brand speaks to the modern consumer. 

O’Driscoll’s Irish Whiskey will enter the Irish whiskey market as a competitively priced brand within the standard Irish whiskey category.
Irish whiskey is in a renaissance and the category is becoming more pre-immunised. Given O’Driscoll’s positioning within the Irish whiskey market, they can provide a high quality, competitively priced challenger brand to the category leaders. O’Driscoll’s desire is to penetrate the mainstream Irish whiskey category by giving distributors and retailers the opportunity to drive a category exclusive offering.
