A Whiskey of Firsts

  • This is the first Stories & Sips Club Whiskey partnership directly with a distillery
  • It’s our first peated Club whiskey
  • This whiskey is the first peated whiskey released by Rademon Estate Distillery
  • It’s the first peated Single Malt Irish whiskey distilled, matured and released from Northern Ireland in more than 75 years



Why This Whiskey?

On our August 2022 Whiskey Bus Tour of Ireland where we visited 9 distilleries, 16 pubs and sampled 63 whiskeys, this was determined to be the highlight for many on or tour. So impressed were we by the whiskey that we asked if we could release it to our Club members. We’re very grateful that Fiona and David trusted us with their first ever peated whiskey. 


How do you get your hands on a bottle?
