However the 15 year old must be distilled at Cooley distillery and possibly just matured at Kilbeggan, as they are just starting to distil down there.
The new operation will involve producing the whiskey at Cooley and then transporting this spirit to Kilbeggan for re-distillation in the one still. Nothing wrong in this and the extra distillation is likely to make the spirit even lighter. Will not see this spirit in a bottle for at least 3 years ( by law) and probably even further away than that.

Ally from the Celtic Whiskey Shop is organising. 25 people only @ 20Euro a ticket. I have 2 tickets booked. Contact the shop if your interested.
Noel Sweeney will be there from Cooley to host.
I do not have a definitive line up.
Kilbeggan 15yo Limited edition will be there as well as the new single cask offerings from Cooley.
I presume this means....
Tyrconnell14yo single cask, 10yo port cash, 10yo Maderia cask and the 14yo Connemara single cask.
