Cooley distillery in Louth was founded in 1987 by John Teeling, a graduate of Harvard business school, using the column stills from the site's original industrial alcohol plant and pot stills from the defunct Old Comber distillery. Cooley began production in 1989, increasing the number of whiskey distilleries in Ireland by 50% at a stroke - Midleton and Bushmills had been the only remaining operational distilleries since the 1970s.

Cooley made their mark quickly, relaunching historic Irish whiskey brands such as Tyrconnell and Kilbeggan and releasing innovative whiskeys including Ireland’s first modern era peated malt whiskey, Connemara, and its first commercial single grain whiskey, Greenore. In 1993, with Cooley in financial difficulty and the distillery in mothballs, a £25m offer from Irish Distillers, who intended to shut the business down, was blocked by competition authorities. Cooley was bought by Jim Beam in 2012 and is now owned by Beam Suntory.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company is an independent bottling subsidiary of Atom Group, the company that owns Master of Malt and Maverick Drinks. That Boutique-y Whisky Co.’s first bottlings appeared in 2012 and are easily recognisable by their small bottles and garish cartoon labels depicting oblique references to each distillery’s history and characteristics. The company does not reveal the whisky’s vintage on their labels, and only began using age statements in 2016.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company are prolific bottlers, with over 800 releases in their first decade. The company are also distinguished by the innovation of their offering, particularly in regard to world whiskies, and are often the first UK bottlers to release whiskies from new world distilleries. That Boutique-y Whisky Co.'s parent company Atom Group was purchased by Budweiser brewers AB-InBev in 2018.


Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
