The Mission Year

Caroline Reilly, Jan 20, 2017

Spreading joy through whiskey, chocolate and cream   The name’s Swan…..Coole Swan Now we’re not jumping to any conclusions, but it’s a little-known fact that Navan, Co. Meath is home to Pierce Brosnen, aka James Bond. Now we at Coole Swan like to think that that’s no coincidence, and that there must be something in […]

Your Dry January Saviour….

Caroline Reilly, Jan 13, 2017

Well! What a festive period. We’d be lying if we said it wasn’t epic. We even took an extra week to recover (and finish the last of the mince pies….). We hope you enjoyed it too! But all too soon here we are in January. Outside it’s cold, dark and grey. Inside it’s work, New […]

Things We Love About Christmas…

Caroline Reilly, Dec 23, 2016

You mean apart from everything??  Christmas at the Coole Swan farm is like a nativity scene with new lambs everywhere!! Our  little lambs usually start to arrive on Christmas Eve (we know, fitting right?)…those midnight trips to the lambing shed are our favourite…the shed is warm and quiet with just the sound of ewes breathing… […]

Is it wrong to get excited by geography?

Caroline Reilly, Dec 09, 2016

Did you know that the population of Australia is 23 million people? Did you know that Denmark has more than twice the number of bicycles than cars? Or that New Zealand  has the place with the longest name in the world –  Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu (try saying that after a Coole Swan or two….) What about that […]

A splash of Coole Swan and a sprinkle of hygge

Caroline Reilly, Dec 02, 2016

Hygge [Pronounced ‘Hue-gah’] A feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, everyday things more meaningful, beautiful or special.   We have the Scandinavians to thank for many things……Danish pastries, Ikea, Swedish men (*sigh*), but now we’ve got another to add to the list. You may have come across the Danish word […]

(No) Time For Tea

Harriet Talbot, Nov 25, 2016

We love visitors of all shapes and sizes. Granny popping round for tea (especially when she brings her famous brown bread), the neighbouring farmer (usually with some good advice) and of course Michael the delivery man, or ‘Pat’ as we’ve fondly named him (not that he knows this). The main reason we like visits from […]

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Close….

Harriet Talbot, Nov 18, 2016

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Close. It’s Coole Swan coming into land at Heathrow airport! We’re thrilled to announce that you can now pick up a bottle of our finest at John Lewis, located in Heathrow airport. No more fretting about oversized liquid in your carry-on case or squeezing bottles into your […]

Good Shoes Take You Good Places…..And So Do Good Websites

At Coole Swan we love new things. Like new shoes, for instance. Or new, crisp, clean sheets on a bed. Or newly baked bread straight from the oven. But we also like old things too. Old photos, old songs and old friends (we’re definitely not calling you old…) That’s why when we designed our brand […]
