Episode Q10 – Michael Walsh – Head Distiller Boann Distillery – Distilling Vintage Mashbills

In the last episode of Potstilled Radio, EP Q9, PhD. candidate Fionnán O’Connor spoke to us about how he undertook a campaign to resurrect over 200 years of lost mashbills from Ireland’s distilling history, in County Meath’s Boann Distillery.

In this episode, sit down and join Michael Walsh, Head Distiller of Boann Distillery, as he gives us the behind the scenes insight into what it was like distilling vast quantities of grains that have not been distilled in an industrial scale in Ireland for decades.

He walks us through what the potential risks and pitsfalls that the distillery were expecting and how the distillery team was able to over come these. Not only that but Michael also explains how the team were able to distil vast quantities of oats and other grains without accidentially creating a cement/porridge mix once!

As always a large thank you to our show sponsors:

W.D. O’Connell Whiskey Merchants.
Killowen Distillery.
