Bird of a Feather
In 2022 as the World was opening up again to travellers we were keen to set off on a new adventure in a new direction.
J.J. Corry founder Louise McGuane had a chance encounter with master blender John Rhea at Kentucky Owl, and a plan was hatched to bring their expertise and perspectives together through the art of bonding.
Known for sourcing scarce and rare aged Kentucky bourbons and blending them to create unique limited-run batches, Kentucky Owl felt like kindred spirits across the pond. Landing in Louisville, you immediately feel the similarities and differences between Kentucky and Ireland. Horses are a big part of both places, and so too is whiskey. But of course Co. Clare and Kentucky are worlds apart, and so is their whiskey.
