There's a drizzle of smokiness, followed by the unmistakable aroma of peat and the woodiness of the coveted Irish Oak cask.

Our Story

To know more about the roots of J89, we have to dial back the hands of time and travel to the mystical lands of Ireland.

500 years ago, Ireland was covered in ancient oak forests. The oldest of these is believed to be at Rindoon on the West Shore of Lough Ree on the river Shannon. In Elizabethan times, there was an insatiable need for oak to build ships for the English Navy opposing the Spanish Armada.

England turned to their new plantations in Ireland and stripped their dominion of most of the available oak forests to build warships. The average Elizabethan Galleon with a serviceable life of just ten years was built from over 4,000 mature oak trees aged between 80 and 150 years. A royal edict was issued by Queen Elizabeth the First, to strip Ireland of forestry in order to deprive the local Irish insurgents of shelter while at the same time providing oak for new warships.
