Boann launches ‘The Whistler’

Boann, a state-of-the-art, family-owned distillery located in the heart of County Meath’s Boyne Valley, has unveiled its debut range of Irish whiskey called The Whistler.

The Whistler collection consists of a family of three whiskeys:


  • The Whistler ‘The Blue Note’ – a Single Malt 7 Year-Old Irish Whiskey – at 46%ABV


  • The Whistler ‘How The Years Whistle By’ – a Single Malt 10 Year-Old Irish Whiskey – 46%ABV


  • The Whistler ‘Natural Cask Strength Limited Edition’ – a Single Malt 7 Year-Old Irish Whiskey – 59%ABV and limited to 1,200 bottles.


The Whiskeys have been aged in first-fill Bourbon barrels before being transferred to hand-selected Oloroso Sherry casks to finish for two years. The Sherry cask finish adds a rich sweetness and depth to the whiskey and all have been bottled at natural colour without chill filtration.

The Whistler range was officially launched at the recent ‘Whiskey Live’, Ireland’s premier whiskey tasting event which was held in The Printworks, Dublin Castle.

The range was crafted at the Boann Distillery and Boyne Brewhouse in Drogheda, one of Ireland’s only joint craft breweries and distilleries. The location already produces a range of craft beers for the domestic and export markets.

“At Boann Distillery our ethos are the forgotten arts and the spoken word,” said Peter Cooney, Export Sales Director for Boann’s parent company Na Cuana speaking about ‘The Whistler’, “The Whistler Irish Whiskey Single Malt expressions represent these ideals perfectly. Non-chill filtered and natural colour is us putting our best foot forward for our first release. With The Whistler Irish Whiskey Single Malt expressions it’s all about our hand-selected Sherry Oloroso barrels.”
