The Cooley distillery is located in Ireland, on the Louth County peninsula of the same name. Until 1987 the distillery was state-owned and destined for the distillation of potatoes. In 1985 John Teeling bought the old distillery and converted it to Whisky production. Today the distillery is owned by Beam Suntory.
Cooley Distillery produces various whisky lines:
Kilbeggan, a blended whiskey that was previously distilled at Kilbeggan Distillery;
Greenore, a single grain whiskey aged in ex-bourbon barrels;
Connemara, a peaty malt whiskey distilled twice instead of the typical 3 Irish;
