Founders Cask Programme


Becoming a Founder Member by purchasing a cask will contribute to realising the vision for Ahascragh Distillery. Individuals, families, groups of friends, clubs or corporate entities now have the opportunity to own their own cask of whiskey from Ahascragh Distillery and benefit from the growth and global demand of Irish whiskey.

The Founders Cask Programme is not just about being part of the Ahascragh Distillery Family, it’s about a new life and soul for an old mill and local community in County Galway. Member contributions will help realise the vision for the distillery, creating lasting employment and a cultural legacy for the community. 

Gareth and Michelle McAllister’s mission is to help family and friends celebrate meaningful moments and occasions, strengthening new and old connections, and what better way to do that than with your own whiskey, made by you. Founder Members can customise their spirit and cask, making this a unique and personal experience.

Whiskey helps us to celebrate the big occasions and mark the smaller ones;  weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, family gatherings, business milestones, class reunions, hellos, goodbyes and all the moments in-between.

The Founders Cask Programme is open through till the end of the first year of production, expected to be mid 2023.
