Brindiamo Group President and CFO Jeff Steinberg announced that the company has been slowly building up its resources in Ireland and now has accumulated an inventory close to 10,000 barrels of Irish Whiskey, new-make to 20+ years old. Additionally, the company has a new, dedicated Brindiamo warehouse in West Cork, Ireland that will provide storage for Irish Whiskey barrels along with other locations around the country. The warehouse is situated on the grounds of West Cork Distillers, located near the small maritime town of Skibbereen in County Cork, Ireland.

Steinberg said, “This is a major development in our strategy for logistics and facilities in the Irish market, where we see the potential for tremendous growth. With a capacity of approximately 12,000 casks, this first Brindiamo warehouse in Ireland will better serve our clients with their barrel storage requirements.”

Brindiamo’s Chairman and CEO, Jeff Hopmayer, added, “This modern warehouse is a joint effort between Brindiamo and West Cork Distillers. It provides dedicated storage with barrels being managed and operated by experienced teams on the grounds of West Cork Distillers.”

Co-founder and former Powerscourt Distillery managing director Alex Peirce, who is now a consultant to Brindiamo, introduced Hopmayer to John O’Connell, co-founder of West Cork Distillers, the largest wholly Irish-owned distillery in the country. Peirce said, “The procurement of our warehouse is a real game-changer for Brindiamo and our clients. We anticipate this will be the first of many Brindiamo-owned warehouses in Ireland and later in Scotland, as we become more involved in the Irish and Scotch markets.”

O’Connell, was very excited to partner with Brindiamo on the new warehouse. “I had known of Brindiamo for many years and Jeff Hopmayer is one of the most high-standing individuals in the spirits industry, so it was a pleasure to come onboard and the relationship has been nothing but positive. The key factor to the success of any project is the character of the individuals involved and Jeff has proven to be of great ability and huge integrity and West Cork is delighted to work with Brindiamo on this and future projects.”
