On December 17, 2021, W.D. O’Connell Whiskey Merchants will release Tomásín, (pronounced: thumb-aus-een) their first Pot Still Irish whiskey. 

Available exclusively at the W.D. O’Connell online store (shop.wdoconnell.com), Tomásín (pronounced: thumb-aus-een) follows the exciting latest releases of the PX Series, Sherry Series, Bill Phil and Bourbon & Rye this Winter season.


This unique pot still whiskey is named after the home of our new headquarters in Choill Mhic Thomáisín ( or Kilmacthomas in English), Co. Waterford. Distilled at Great Northern Distillery in 2016, Tomásín (pronounced: thumb-aus-een) was matured in a first-fill ex-bourbon cask for three years and 10 months. It was then transferred to an ex-Bill Phil peated cask for an additional 16 months. This single cask is the first step in our journey to creating our own signature pot still whiskey, using the cask styles we have worked with so far in all of our previous releases. 

Founder Daithí O’Connell said “We are really excited about this next step in our development; moving into our own headquarters in Kilmacthomas, we felt the need to show the community here what it means to us and how much we are committed to the area and what better than naming one of our products after the same place and Tomásín ( pronounced: thumb-aus-een) is evidence of that commitment. The Pot Still range will take time to develop, we have been working on multiple cask styles over the last 2 years and it will take maybe another 18 months to two years to get to a place where we can release a small batch variation, so in the meantime we will showcase our different cask styles individually”
