Baile an fhasaigh, ‘place of the lush grass’, is surely a fitting place to grow barley.
The Shees clan settled here to the west of the Nore river in the 15th century.
Defined by a geology of limestone and sandstone, Sheestown is a rolling, lowland terroir of well drained, loamy soil with outcrops of gravel and drier hilltops.
Philip O’Brien has farmed here for half a century, while his daughter, Maura, works at the distillery.
Grower: Philip O’Brien, Sheestown, Kilkenny.
