Golden Rum

The honey coloured spirit is gently matured in ex-bourbon casks before being finished with the unique qualities of locally sourced Irish Oak to impart additional colour and flavour, crafting a truly exceptional Irish Rum.

White Rum

Made using local spring water and premium grade sugar cane molasses this white Irish rum is distilled using a combination of Pot and Column stills before being vessel rested to ensure balance and roundness of flavour.


Using a local recipe inspired by the 7th-century Benedictine monks of the nearby Fore Abbey, this smooth, full body Poitin is distilled using premium malt barley, oats and the local spring water.

  • Crafted with love

  • Our Main Ingredient - Water

    Fore is the anglicised version of the Irish name Fobhair meaning ‘water-springs’ and was given to the area after the well of Saint Féchín (Féichín).
    It was St. Feichin who founded the ancient Fore Abbey around 630. Legend states that the underground flow of water flows uphill to the Mill.

What others say about us

The Golden Rum is sophisticated and full of flavor. It is rich without being overwhelmed with hard oak. If you ask me, it is the gold standard of rum. Simply superb!

A present from my wife and what a present it was. I enjoyed every last drop and can’t wait to get my hand on another bottle.

I love rum and the Fore Distillery Rum has the perfect balance of oak flavour without being too sweet leaving a subtle burn. Drinking this neat is the way to go but it also worked well with a mixer.

A luxurious adventure of rich evolving tastes of molasses, oak and sweetness at a very reasonable price. Very smooth and easy on the palate and a great alternative to high-end Whiskeys.
