We recently auctioned off two bottles of our renowned Imperial Stout Trooper Cask Finish, raising €1,155 for local charity West Cork Rapid Response.
Held in partnership with our friends at Irish Whiskey Auctions. The auction took place in mid October and all proceeds were in aid of the local charity.
West Cork Rapid Response are entirely voluntary group. They work in partnership with and support the existing National Ambulance Services in West Cork. As a registered charity, whose entire team work on a voluntary basis, they welcome any and all assistance.
The whiskey, which is the result of us once again joining forces with the New England Brewing Company, won Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020. As a result it became extremely sought after by whiskey fans.
We only produced 1400 bottles for sale in Connecticut, keeping a mere 60 in Ireland for sale at the distillery. After selling out quickly, these two bottles were a fan’s last chance to get hold of one.
At the presentation, Michael Scully, Founder of Clonakilty Distillery said: “we were delighted to have this opportunity to support Dr Jason. We hope the proceeds raised will help him to continue doing the fantastic work he does for the area”.
West Cork Rapid Response added: “we are extremely grateful for this generous donation from Clonakilty Distillery and thank everyone involved”.
