Keeper’s Heart casks

Cask Society

Your opportunity to be a part of whiskey distilling history.

Keeper’s Heart Cask Society

Keeper’s Heart Whiskey is excited to invite you to our “Keeper’s Heart Cask Society.” Keeper’s Heart is the whiskey that blends the best of Irish and American traditions. Inspired by our family’s journey and history, and with a deep appreciation for time spent with loved ones and friends, Keeper’s Heart celebrates the moments worth keeping.

This offering gives you the opportunity to be part of whiskey distilling history by gaining access to one of the first one hundred casks of Keeper’s Heart Pot Distilled American Whiskey from our soon to be opened distillery in Minneapolis. As a member of our Family Cask Program, you will be warmly welcomed into our family and will receive a number of other special benefits.

The Cask

This program gives you access to a remarkable rare whiskey. Our Master Distiller, Brian Nation, has spent a lifetime honing the craft of whiskey distilling.

After a long and storied career as the Master Distiller with Irish Distillers, the makers of Jameson, Redbreast, Midleton Very Rare, the Spot range and Powers Irish Whiskey, he has joined the O’Shaughnessy Distilling family to embark on a new journey and explore new expressions of whiskey, marrying Irish and American Whiskey Traditions.

Our first Family Cask offering is the perfect expression of his vision: a whiskey made from 100% American grains distilled three times in copper pot stills – the quintessential way in which Irish Whiskey has traditionally been produced. Using a mash bill of malted and unmalted barley, this triple-distilled whiskey is matured in virgin American oak casks, resulting in the creation of the finest American triple-distilled Pot Whiskey.
