Distillery Notes

The Irish words “Barr an Uisce” (pronounced Bar on Ishka) literal English translation is “above the water”. It is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a townland set in the heart of the beautiful County of Wicklow, on the East Coast of Ireland. The Irish word “Uisce“ or “water” in English, was used during the time Irish monks first distilled what we now know as whiskey. The monks called it “Uisce Beatha” meaning water of life.

The founder of “Barr an Uisce” Irish Whiskey, Ian Jones, comes from the small village of Redcross, which lies below the townland of Barraniskey. Redcross was a major stopping point for horse and carts travelling from southern Ireland to Dublin many years ago. People who travelled along the East Coast of Ireland found themselves in the village. Redcross became a meeting point for gossip, news, culture and music.
