Ireland’s so-called ‘Wine Geese’ name was inspired by the ‘Wild Geese’- soldiers who left Ireland to fight in the armies of continental Europe in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. But the ‘Wine Geese’ made wine not war and, migrating to all four corners of the globe, they established and nurtured wineries whose produce would one day be amongst the most revered in the world. Wines like Château Léoville Barton. The seeds of its success sown in the late 1700s by Curraghmore man, Thomas Barton - also known as French Tom - the Château Léoville Barton came from the very heart of the Saint Julien appellation in Bordeaux, one of the best wine making regions in the world. And it still does with Thomas’s descendants, Anthony Barton and his daughter Lillian, tending to the historic vineyards and making sure that, from grape to glass, elegance and finesse continue to define Château Léoville Barton. Just as they have for centuries. And it’s the French oak casks, the very casks that play a vital role in the wine’s distinctive balance, bouquet and flavour, that we’ve used to bring something extra to Green Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.
