Sailor’s Home Irish Whiskey: Three editions available

The Irish whiskey brand introduces itself with “The Journey”, “The Haven” and “The Horizon”


The Sailor’s Home Company launched the three bottlings "The Journey","The Haven" and "The Horizon" in Ireland, Great Britain and meanwhile also in Germany.

Founder and CEO of The Sailor’s Home Company is Cian Quilty, who can look back on many years of experience in the whiskey business and is now presenting his own whiskey label with the Limerick-based company.

As an experienced specialist in fermentation, distillation, maturation and blending, he brought in Jack O’Sé. Under his supervision, the whiskeys were triple distilled according to their own recipe, but it is not revealed in which distillery this was done. Jack O’Sé monitored the maturation of the casks from which the first batches for the three new labels were blended. All three whiskeys were bottled at 43% ABV.

The three Sailor’s Home Irish Whiskeys

"The Journey" is a blend of Irish malt whiskey, which, after maturing in ex-bourbon barrels, received a finish in Jamaica rum barrels, and Irish grain whiskey with a first maturation in fresh American oak and second maturation in fresh ex-bourbon barrels. The whiskey offers intense toffee, butterscotch and rum aromas and a finely balanced flavour.

"The Haven" is a single pot still Irish whiskey made from malted and unmalted Irish barley, supplemented with a small portion of oats. It was matured in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-Oloroso sherry casks. A creamy and luscious start is followed by expressive fruitiness.

"The Horizon" is a blend of Irish malt and grain whiskey that was matured for at least 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels and then underwent a 6-month finish in fresh Barbados rum casks. "An elegant and complex tropical heavyweight with an unmistakable influence of Caribbean rum, which flatters the palate with aromas of caramelised banana and dark cane sugar," reveals a press release of the German distributor Alba Import.

At home in the world of explorers and sailors

The name Sailor’s Home refers to a seaman's mission that was built in Limerick in 1856 and where sailors from all over the world found a home away far away from their native lands. Like the sailors, explorers and adventurers The Sailor's Home is in search for new paths and possibilities, and Cian wants to break new ground in the world of Irish whiskey.
