Gareth McAllister, Founder & Managing Director says:

“Our Founders Cask Programme is a great opportunity to own a piece of whiskey history in the West of Ireland. Our mission is to help family and friends celebrate meaningful moments and occasions, and what better way than with your own bottle of whiskey from your own cask. Founder Members can customise their spirit and cask, making this a unique and personal experience. We are delighted to invite people from Galway, Ireland and beyond to join us on our whiskey journey.”

McAllister Distillers was established in 2018 with the purpose of producing authentically crafted Irish spirits to the highest quality of tasting experience with unique and innovative flavours. Ahascragh Mill dates back to the early 1800s and up until the 1950’s processed grain into flour. It has been disused and derelict for the past 70 years. McAllister Distillers are restoring this beautiful old mill, delivering a world-class whiskey experience and hospitality destination inside a working craft distillery. McAllister Distillery Ahascragh will be powered by renewable energy and at its core will be a passion and drive to reach a carbon-neutral operation.

The Founders Cask Programme will help to refurbish the existing Old Mill buildings, create visitor and tourist facilities, install process equipment for sustainable production of whiskey and gin, establish a visitor experience and a permanent exhibition of the restored old mill equipment, create lasting local employment and a cultural legacy for the community of East Galway.
