The literal English translation of the Irish words “Barr an Uisce” ["bar on ischka"] is “above the water”.
It is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a town set in the heart of the beautiful County of Wicklow. Named after the year St. Patrick’s Church was built in Barraniskey, these whiskeys reflect the native Wicklow spirit shaped over hundreds of years through the rich and complex heritage, landscape, community and culture.
Barr an Uisce whiskies are cut with water from the Jones' family well in Redcross, County Wicklow. The fresh well water gives the whiskies a unique taste and flavor. Known as the Garden of Ireland, Wicklow represents the best of the Irish countryside. With its fresh water streams, rolling hills, lush forests and majestic views, it offers all that is expected when we think of Ireland.
