What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site.

  • First party cookies are cookies set by the website you're visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.

Every time you visit our websites, you will be prompted to accept or refuse cookies. The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences (such as user name, language, etc.) for a certain period of time. That way, you don't have to re-enter them when browsing around the site during the same visit.

Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?

Currently, there are four types of cookies that may be generated as you browse our site: Strictly Necessary, Statistics, Preference and Marketing cookies.

1. Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential for you to browse the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site. Cookies that allow web shops to hold your items in your cart while you are shopping online are an example of strictly necessary cookies. These cookies will generally be first-party session cookies. While it is not required to obtain consent for these cookies, what they do and why they are necessary are explained in the table below.

How do I control Strictly Necessary Cookies?

You can use your browser settings to control whether or not we set session cookies. More information on your browser settings is provided at the bottom of this page.

Please be aware that these cookies are critical to the efficient working of the site. If you choose to disable these cookies from this site, the functionality of the site may be greatly reduced.

2. Statistics Cookies

Also known as "performance cookies," these cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. It is all aggregated and, therefore, anonymized. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions. This includes cookies from third-party analytics services as long as the cookies are for the exclusive use of the owner of the website visited.

Statistical information is used in reports and to improve our site. For example, we have used analytics data to add, remove or change features of the site based on how popular they are with users.

We track, for example:

  • the numbers of visitors to individual pages;
  • when pages were visited;
  • how long users stayed on the page;
  • the IP address of the user of the website;
  • the page they came from;
  • technical data about the device being used to browse the site (such as browser and operating system version, and display size) โ€” we use this data to ensure that the technology our site uses is appropriate for the majority of our users, and how best to display the site for users who have less capable browsers.

More information about Statistics cookies

We use cookies from different partners including Google to provide our analytics data. You can read more about how Google Analytics treats your data on their web site. You can also read Google's full privacy policy.

How do I control Statistics cookies?

Google provides a tool to opt-out of Google Analytics. This is available for all modern browsers in the form of a browser plugin. Additionally, you can control how cookies are set using your browser settings.

3. Preference cookies

Also known as "functionality cookies," these cookies allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer, whether you have accepted our cookie policy, what region you would like weather reports for, or what your user name and password are so you can automatically log in.

4. Marketing cookies

The advertisements you see displayed on this, and other, sites are generated by third parties. These services may use their own anonymous cookies to track how many times a particular ad has been displayed to you and may track your visits to other sites where their ads are displayed. Please note that advertisers can only track visits to sites which display their ads or other content. This tracking is anonymous, meaning that they do not identify who is viewing which ads.

Tracking in this manner allows advertisers to show you ads that are more likely to be interesting to you, and also limit the number of times you see the same ad across a wide number of sites. As an example of how advertisers operate, if you recently researched holidays, adverts for holiday operators may subsequently appear on our sites.

We do not have access to, or control over, these third party cookies; nor can we view the data held by these advertisers. Online advertisers provide ways for you to opt-out of your browsing being tracked. More information about the advertisers we use, and how to opt-out, is provided below.

The Storied Legacy of the Boann Distillery in Ireland

Exploring Whisky Investments and the Storied Legacy of Boann Distillery in Ireland Whisky enthusiasts and investors alike have found a captivating blend of tradition and opportunity in the realm of whisky investments. Among the notable distilleries making waves in this arena is the Boann Distillery, nestled in the verdant landscapes of Ireland. This article delves into the art of whisky investments and shines a spotlight on the Boann Distillery, where quality meets innovation.

A Glimpse into History: The Boann Distillery Story

Drogheda's rich whiskey history dates back to 1556. In 1774, it hosted eighteen distilleries, dwindling to one by 1822. Preston's iconic distillery closed in the 1850s. The Preston brothers revitalized it in 1886 as a whiskey bonding business.

Aeneas Coffey's impact as Excises sub-commissioner to inventor of the Coffey still shaped Drogheda's legacy. Irish whiskey faced challenges like Prohibition and trade disputes, leading to decline. Now, Irish whiskey flourishes anew, with up to thirty distilleries planned. Boann Distillery's birth symbolizes Drogheda's return to distillation after 160 years.

The distillery's name pays homage to the legendary goddess of the River Boyne, infusing the spirit of heritage into every drop of whisky. Established in 2015 by the Cooney family, Boann is a testament to a shared passion for creating exceptional spirits and becoming one of the only 40 actively operating distilleries in the nation.

Boann Distillery's Triumphs at the World Whisky Awards

The Boann Distillery has earned a remarkable place on the global whisky stage, adorned with an array of prestigious awards from the World Whisky Awards. These accolades bear witness to the distillery's commitment to excellence and craftsmanship. From "Best Irish Single Malt" to "Best Irish Pot Still," their whiskies have consistently garnered recognition, solidifying their position as a force to be reckoned with in the whisky world.

Tradition Meets Innovation

Boann Distillery artfully weaves together tradition and innovation. While rooted in time-honored distillation practices, the distillery embraces cutting-edge technology to ensure the highest quality. From their copper pot stills to their dedication to sustainable production, Boann harmonizes the past and present to craft whiskies that capture the essence of Ireland. With a vision to create a whisky legacy that spans generations, Boann invests in the future through education and community engagement. Their dedication to stewardship ensures that the legacy of Irish whisky-making remains vibrant and evolving.

A Green Commitment

The distillery ensures that every raw ingredient used is entirely natural and sourced locally. The water is drawn from the Boyne Valley well, and the barley they use is supplied by native farmers. Operating with an eco-conscious approach, the Boann distillery has established a closed-loop water system that recycles all input water and harnesses energy for various processes. Rainwater harvesting contributes to their sustainability efforts and provides nourishment for their gin botanicals.

The byproducts of distillation, including pot ale and spent grains, hold a high protein content and find a new life as valuable animal feed. From the initial milling to the final bottling, every exquisite sip of Boann's malted pot still whiskey and craft gin is nurtured within the tranquility of the family distillery.

The Showcase: Boann New Era Oak 225L Cask

One of the crowning jewels in Boann Distillery's portfolio is the Boann New Era Oak 225L Cask. This masterpiece represents a harmonious marriage of tradition and innovation. Crafted with precision and aged to perfection, this cask embodies the distillery's unwavering dedication to producing exceptional whisky.

With the increasing demand for rare and limited editions, distilleries have transformed into repositories of value, making cask ownership an enticing venture. The intersection of passion and profit has led investors to explore distilleries that stand out not only for their products but also their accolades.

Konvi's industry expert and spirits partner was able to secure ยฃ100,000 worth of these exceptional casks, which appreciated in value by 8.8% within the first six months after purchase.

A Symphony of Flavors

The Boann New Era Oak 225L Cask is a testament to the impact of wood on whisky maturation. The 225-liter oak cask creates an environment where the spirit evolves, absorbing flavors and aromas from the wood itself. This interaction introduces a symphony of vanilla, spice, and toasted oak notes, creating a complex tapestry of flavors that captivates the senses.


As the world of whisky investments continues to evolve, distilleries like Boann are at the forefront, pushing the boundaries of what's possible. With a legacy built on excellence and a vision that embraces innovation, Boann Distillery offers a glimpse into the future of whisky investments. From their award-winning triumphs to the allure of their New Era Oak 225L Cask, Boann Distillery invites enthusiasts and investors to be part of a journey where tradition and modernity coalesce in every drop.
