Seanchaí Cask OwnershipIn Donegal, a Seanchaí (pronounced shan-a-key) is the keeper of an oral tradition. A Seanchaí would imbibe the stories, myths, facts and folklore and then fuse them together to recount the tales that give an area its distinctiveness and true identity. We have created Seanchaí, an exclusive cask-owning membership club, as part of the next generation of storytellers and custodians of the new whiskey distillery. The funds raised from Seanchaí will be used to produce the first casks from the distillery.
As a Seanchaí you will be a member of an exclusive club limited to 600 in number. The club will be made up of whisky aficionados and enthusiasts from around the world and local supporters and friends of the distillery.
As a Seanchaí you will own one the first casks produced at the distillery.
Your support of the distillery will be publicly acknowledged through certification of membership and with your name engraved on a brass ring around the base of the intermediate copper still.
You will receive samples taken from your cask on the 3rd and 5th anniversaries of its filling.
The distillery will be open to you by appointment to take further samples and to enjoy personal tastings and free tours.
There will be a loyalty card providing a 10% discount off spirit purchases at the distillery (20% on non-spirit purchases).
Your cask will be stored safely and maintained for you for a minimum of 5 years, fully insured against risk of loss.
We will keep you updated on what we are doing and invite you to milestone events.
