What to drink now:  Sailor’s Home

Introducing Sailor’s Home, an innovative new Irish Whiskey brand set to push the boundaries of what is expected from a traditional Irish Whiskey, with its three unique expressions – The Haven, The Journey and The Horizon.

The perfect gift for whiskey aficionados and cocktail fans alike this Christmas, Sailor’s Home rewards those who are daring enough to embrace their sense of adventure and explore its unique and unexpected flavours, created in Limerick, Ireland and shaped by the world. Rejecting the limits placed on traditional Irish Whiskey distilling in favour of innovative aging, blending and finishing processes – Sailor’s Home uses casks sourced from Jamaica, Barbados, Spain and the USA to produce flavours that are unlike any other Irish Whiskey.

Inspired by the rugged and untamed Wild Atlantic Way on the western coast of Ireland and the original Sailor’s Home, a shelter built for the international community of seafarers travelling through the port of Limerick from Spain, America and the Caribbean in the 1800s; Sailor’s Home is available now from Master of Malt at the RRPs listed below.


Each whiskey has its own unique journey and story to tell:

The Haven, RRP £43.95 – A Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is a unique single pot still Irish Whiskey, initially matured in American bourbon barrels and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks, giving the liquid a captivating flavour full of spices, roasted almonds and vanilla notes . The Haven Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey is best enjoyed neat or in a well-balanced Manhattan cocktail.

The Journey, RRP £36.95 – The Journey is the go-to whiskey for adventurers. The whiskey is initially aged in virgin American oak, followed by recasking into American bourbon barrels before blending with malt Irish whiskey that has been matured in American bourbon and finished in Jamaican rum casks. The result is tropical fruit and rum notes with sticky toffee pudding and banana with a long, almost sweet finish. Explorers can stir The Journey Irish Whiskey into an Old Fashioned or enjoy neat.

The Horizon, RRP £49.95 – Crafted from exceptional Irish malt and grain whiskeys that have been matured for at least 10 years in American bourbon barrels. This remarkable whiskey is then filled into carefully selected Barbados rum casks for a finishing period of 6 months introducing lush, refined flavour twists typical of Caribbean rums like caramelised banana and rich brown sugar. The Horizon 10 Year Old Irish Whiskey, the first in the Islands Series, should be experienced neat.
