Cooley Distillery

The Cooley distillery has a special place in the recent history of Irish whiskey. The man that alot of people credit with kick starting the revival of independent distilling in Ireland, Mr John Teeling bought the cooley distillery in 1987. With the team of people that he assembled around him, the Cooley distillery began to flourish and it wasn't long before he spotted the opportunity to revive lost brands in the lockes, kilbeggan and tyrconnell brands. Cooley continued the growth with mass producing own brand labeled whiskey for the supermarkets and the production of the now legendary Connemara peated whiskey. Cooley was sold in 2011 to the American drinks brand BEAM but beam has since been bought by Suntory Holdings of Japan.
