• The Molly Malone Whiskey Company is family owned.
  • Founded by whisky entrepreneur Richard Lombard-Chibnall. His family have a rich heritage in wine and spirits,
    dating to late 17th century.
  • For 60 years Lombard have successfully owned and managed Lombard Scotch Whisky.
  • One of the original independents, Lombard developed a wealth of stock from many old and closed distilleries.
  • Lombard matured and bottled from its own stocks, establishing a lucrative and award winning portfolio.
  • Richard saw an opportunity for Irish Whiskey over frequent visits to North America.
  • During a famous rugby match, Ireland beat the All-Blacks. An emotional crowd sang ‘Molly Malone’ with an
    intensity that conceived the brand idea.
  • Richard set about to capture the passion of that moment.

Whiskey Criteria

  • Richard wanted the whisky to have a Sweet and Light character. This traditional Irish whiskey style was inspired
    by the ballad ‘I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone’.
  • The small batch whiskey is not aligned to any one distillery.
  • Richard sampled hand-crafted malts from Ireland’s greatest whiskey distilleries. Selected malts are married
  • Quercus Alba (American White Oak) – barrels of choice for maturation.
  • Casks are second-fill bourbon barrels…perfect for preserving the light and sweet character of this beautiful
    whiskey (bourbon absorbed vanilla and coconut tannins of the new wood).

The Whiskey

Molly Malone’s Whiskey 70CL
(Case 6)


Enticing, gentle citrus notes precede the charred notes of toasted oak.

Develops quick and light on the palate with a scintillating crispness. Follows through to a light toffee and vanilla crescendo.

Sweet gentle vanilla notes combine beautifully with delicate soft oakiness.
