Whiskey Factor(merchant) is an independent bottler aiming squarely at the collector (and their loved ones) – whether you’re looking for fabulous liquid to drink or an amazing bottle to add to that collection or gift to someone. An fear Grinn is for you.

I’m sourcing great Irish whiskey from partner distilleries – people I know. Together with them I choose liquid, cask maturation path and finishing. With the aim of producing something different and excellent. Good news is that many Irish master distillers are not only willing but excited to join in achieving my goal!

I’m releasing An Fear Grinn in Numbered Limited Editions, at perhaps three expressions each year. Inherently these releases are truly one-offs of great Irish whiskey. Each is numbered individually by hand and offers a beautiful and unique collectable.

An exciting time ahead with lots of stock set aside, maturing and awaiting release for you. But in the meantime check out first series Fear Grinn – Against The Grain.
