Rare Irish Single Malt Drumshambo Galanta Launches In The UK

Posted on 24th May 2022

We are bringing a new, limited edition Irish whiskey to the UK with the arrival of Drumshanbo Single Malt Irish Whiskey 2021 Galánta release.


The whiskey is a rare, limited edition of 6,000 bottles and the first single malt to be distilled in the province of Connacht in 107 years.  The name Galánta means bravery and excellence in Gaelic.

Made from 100% Irish malted barley and aged in specially selected Kentucky ex-bourbon barrels and the finest Marsala wine casks, Drumshanbo  Galánta is a whisky of elegance and depth.

The new liquid has been created by Head Distiller Brian Taft at The Shed distillery of PJ Rigney in 2014 and bottled in 2021 at 46% ABV. It has no colour added and is non-chill filtered with each bottle numbered.

“We’re always looking to bring new and interesting whiskey to British drinkers. Drumshanbo Galánta is a stunning release from The Shed Distillery which is known to create spirits of exceptional quality. With the category growing by +68% in two years*, the appeal of Irish whiskey in the UK shows no sign of abating. We think this rare edition will be sought-after by whiskey enthusiasts looking for something special to try” says Chris Seale, MD, Speciality Brands.

To fully appreciate the flavours and texture, Drumshanbo Irish Single Malt Whiskey 2021 Galánta is best enjoyed neat, however it can also be used to create classic cocktails such as a Tipperary or Old Fashioned.
