We couldn’t be more excited about the journey we’re about to go on with our first Stories & Sips Whiskey Club collaboration of 2023 with an historic release from Shortcross Whiskey and Rademon Estate Distillery.
Released at the end of January, this special whiskey will be available to members of the Stories & Sips Whiskey Club all over the world on a first come, first serve basis.

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
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?
We’re hoping to have this in our hands and ready for shipping by the end of January, subject to labeling, bottling and transport all going to plan! We’ll then ship from our retail partner in Cork with delivery anywhere in the world.
Club bottles are only available to Club members so if not yet a member, click here to join and you’ll be the first to receive the email as soon is it is ready to be ordered:
