For centuries, fine whisky has been produced in Ireland. The word “whiskey” comes from ancient Gaelic “uisce beatha”, meaning “water of life”.


In the 1960’s, Mark Edwin Andrews, an American with strong ties to Ireland, purchased barrels of Irish whiskey. He left them to age before bottling them under the Knappogue label, the name of his castle originally built by the MacNamara clan in County Clare, 1467, in order to lead the rebellion against the Norman invasion.


Knappogue Castle keeps the tradition alive as initiated by the Andrews and produces exceptional Single Malts. Mark Edwin Andrews and his wife Lavone Dickensheets Andrews, a Texas architect, embarked on a journey to return the castle to its past grandeur and glory, and then Mark Edwin Andrews fell in love with the art of bottling and built the quality Knappogue Castle brand.
