Background

  • 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
    together.
  • 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).
