Coole Swan is based on our Family Farm one hour North of Dublin City on the Meath/Cavan border. We live and work on a real farm, so real in fact that our office is a converted sheep shed situated in the middle of our meadows – where our cows and sheep graze come rain or shine.
Coole Swan was born by blending the finest Single Malt Irish Whiskey with White Belgian Chocolate and Fresh Cream. Coole Swan is 100% natural and is now regarded as the world’s most delicious tasting lrish Cream Liqueur. But don’t just take our word for it…..try it for yourself.
The day to day routine of farm life means at Coole Swan we never underestimate or miscalculate the quality of the ingredients we use…. the Grain for the Whiskey, the Cows who produce the Fresh Dairy Cream….
150 cows are milked here twice a day, every day. Our ladies make the walk from the field to the milking parlour twice daily – for 8am and again at 4pm. In between they graze on fresh, rain enriched Green Grass. It is a fantastic sight to see – the ladies walking in a straight line to their stand in the Dairy. Some days they do it in sunshine…but usually they push through the wind and rain – regardless they always deliver the most fantastic Milk and Cream… each cow gives us up to 28 litres of fresh milk a day. Go girls go….
The name Coole Swan was inspired by one of Ireland’s great romantic poets – WB Yeats. At the turn of the century in Ireland few supported the arts…. people were suspicious of poets / writers and artists. WB Yeats would often escape down to Coole Park an estate on the West Coast of Ireland owned by Lady Gregory a benefactor of the Arts….. Many of Yeats poems were inspired while sitting at the lake in Coole Park (Co. Galway) including the ‘’Wild Swans at Coole’’.
A poem is about the search for a lasting beauty in a changing world where beauty is mortal and temporary….. We think Coole Swan is that lasting beauty.
Appearance – A natural cream colour with a very delicate hue imparted by the cocoa and real chocolate. Nose – Soft, fresh cream and chocolate underpinning the spicy, sweet and nutty triple distilled Irish Whiskey. Taste – The initial impact of cold, fresh, creamy chocolate gently melts in the mouth to be followed by the perfect balance of spicy, sweet and exceptional smoothness.
The Coole Swan bottle was based on the design of a 19th century milk bottle. Our bottle is made of clear glass which we decorate with a very special white paint – it blocks all daylight keeping Coole Swan fresh and as close to nature as we can.
