This November we are delighted here at The Whiskey Trail, to welcome, Lambay Whiskey ‘Single Malt’ as our Whiskey of the month. Lambay whiskey is an intriguing collaboration between two families, the Barring’s and Camus. Lambay island is 3 km off the east coast of Ireland owned by the Baring family since 1904. Their desire to create a whiskey which captured the unique essence of the island was one they knew would only work with the right partner; Camus from Cognac.
Camus are know the world over for creating some of the most sublime cognacs out there. Making it a perfect partnership. Cyril Camus is fifth generation in the Camus cognac business and his desire to diversify was music to Alexander Barrings ears. Patrick Léger, their Master Blender is from the legendary cognac house Camus; he has also taken charge of picking the finest French oak casks in which to mature this unique whiskey. These casks are then shipped to Lambay island directly from the cellars at Camus.
Lambay island has their very own bonded warehouse; The Sea Cask Room, which lies next to the sea, giving the whiskey subtle maritime notes. Add the casks from Camus, which already hold rich aromas that influence their whiskey’s finish, rich colour and taste. To add a little more Lambay flourish, they use water from Lambay Island’s own Trinity Well to carefully craft this remarkable Single Malt Irish whiskey.
