About the Producer:
Halewood Wines & Spirits has grown from a small a start-up, to becoming the UK’s largest independent drinks manufacturer and distributor by volume.
In the last three years, the company has embarked upon a huge transformational change. It has created an artisanal spirits and craft beer portfolio via acquisition and organic growth. This has propelled the business forward by focusing on core objectives; building distributional strength, driving vertical integration, identifying trends, rationalisation of low margin brands and creating consumer activations with the core purpose of building strong brand equity. Investment in production capability, especially distilling, brewing and sourcing, has stimulated development of higher quality products with a point of difference.
About the Product:
The Pogues Irish Whiskey is loaded with a lot of character, much like the band itself. Strong malt, citrus and cracked black pepper greet you on the nose which carries onto the palate, joining a sweetness laced with nutmeg. It is a small batch whiskey, blended of malt and grain whiskey and made using pure Irish spring water and Irish barley, malted on site at the West Cork Distillery.
