Following on from the launch of award winning Shortcross Gin and Shortcross Irish Whiskey, the founders of Rademon Estate Distillery, husband and wife duo David & Fiona Boyd-Armstrong have launched the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company.
The team describe the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company (IWBC) as paying homage to the great whiskey bonders and blenders of Belfast, and that while respecting the past the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company is focused on looking forward and crafting new and exciting expressions of Irish Whiskey.
Not content to just source whiskey from other distilleries across the island of Ireland, the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company will also use casks of Shortcross Single Malt, Peated Single Malt and Pot Still whiskies in select expressions. The Irish Whiskey Bonding Company is launching with two new blended Irish Whiskey expressions Grafter and Chancer, alongside the Merchants Malt which is a 15 Year Old Single Malt.
The Grafter – Small Batch Irish Whiskey is a premium blend of 5 Irish Whiskeys including, Shortcross Single Malt Irish Whiskey, triple and double distilled malt alongside pot still and grain.

An exceptional bottling that showcases Irish Whiskey at its finest. Only a limited quantity of this unique Irish whiskey will be available.
Director of Distilling & Blending David Boyd-Armstrong says
“We are Irish Whiskey distillers and blenders at heart and love to create new and innovative expressions. The Irish Whiskey Bonding Company gives us a platform to take the whiskey that we distil at Rademon Estate Distillery under our Shortcross Irish Whiskey brand and to use that to create new expressions that will help us reach a greater number of Irish whiskey fans globally. The art of blending Irish Whiskey is something that we have been working hard at behind the scenes and it’s an exciting time to bring these new Irish Whiskies to market.”

Building on the export success of their existing brands, has seen the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company land its first exports to United States of America, Managing Director Fiona Boyd-Armstrong adds
“In blending each of these expressions we wanted to create Irish Whiskies that we could export across the world, when we first spoke with our importer in the US they where immediately onboard with the new brand and we are delighted to say the Irish Whiskey Bonding Company is now available to purchase across the United States”.
Separately Fiona Boyd-Armstrong has also revealed that as part of a recent investment in the business that Rademon Estate Distillery are now able to provide a contract bottling and storage solutions for other Irish whiskey producers, the company’s recent Salsa audit has seen it accredited for the production and bottling of both Gin and Irish whiskey.
