We're not a marketing company, so if you want romance copy can I suggest you go elsewhere, perhaps a library?
We're a distillery. We make our own gin and our own whiskey. I know, revolutionary.
We value the traditional skills that shape the products we make.
We are the driven by the “what if? Possibility trumps certainty every time for us. It drives not just what we chose to do, but how we do it and ultimately the spirits we
This has resulted in us winning numerous globally recognised spirit awards. Most recently double gold in San Francisco.

Use of proceeds
100% of the proceeds will be used to produce more Irish whiskey and sell it.
Grain and casks cost a lot, and remember we can't sell a drop of whiskey until it's at least three years old. That's a lot of cash that's tied up, doing nothing. So with your help, we can lay down more stock and have more whiskey to sell. We can also spend more time focusing on our key markets, and selling whiskey.
The company has an outstanding loan of £100,000 from Allied Irish Banks with an interest rate of 2.75% per annum. The loan is to be repaid by January 2027.
The funds raised from this investment round will not be used to repay this loan.
The Swiss firm DDSB AS took a minority share in Blackwater Distillery for €2 million back in December 2021, at a pre-money valuation of €9.5m. This investment was at a lower valuation to this round due to strategic value they bring.
Please note, €160,000 of investment that has been reflected in the campaign has been received by the company between 12/01 and 31/01 2022. This investment is on the same terms as Seedrs investors.
