John and his Dad share the same name, John Callely. They share the same pride of country and have a particular grá (Gaelic for love) for Irish whiskey tourism, an industry that has been good to them over their combined 40 years’ experience. They’re glad to say their name is synonymous with premium whiskey experiences in Irish tourism circles, so much so that they formed Whiskey Island to share these experiences with Irish whiskey fans visiting Ireland! Look forward to sharing the story with you!
Dublin at the end of the 1800s was the undisputed whiskey making capital of the world and was the envy of our whiskey making friends in Scotland and bourbon country. But that all changed in the 1900s and every single distillery disappeared. But now they’re returning thanks to a worldwide Irish whiskey boom! This a story John loves telling over and over .
