Why An Carn Irish Whiskey?

Tiny acorns grow into mighty oaks…

An Carn Distillery was born in the heart of County Derry, Oak Leaf Country; and much like the little acorn, we too have ambitions to become mighty Oaks. Irish whiskey is in the midst of a resurgence after experiencing a major decline in the past century. This saw the industry almost completely collapse. Today, the industry is back on its feet. Irish whiskey is now the fastest-growing premium spirit in the world. Its exports have grown 300% in the last decade.

With demand for Irish whiskey soaring, we are awakening a sleeping giant.
