Genuine and bold

The outstanding, award-winning whiskey produced by Ireland’s Royal Oak Distillery arrives on the shelves in bottles made by Vetropack Italia – because an extraordinary product deserves an extraordinary look.

The up-and-coming Royal Oak Distillery in south-east Ireland produces only handmade whiskey. It makes all four Irish varieties of the spirit under its “The Busker” label: single grain, single pot still, single malt and blend Triple Cask Triple Smooth. The intense essences and sweet aftertaste of the whiskeys recently earned the company recognition at the renowned L. A. Spirits Awards.

The distillery’s commitment to combining tradition with adventurous new directions is reflected in the bottles for the “The Busker” range. Their clean lines and minimalist rectangular shape represent the Royal Oak Distillery’s genuine, no-nonsense approach, while the strong shoulder of the bottles highlights the company’s determination to follow its own path. The bottles are produced in five sizes from 375 to 1750 ml at the Vetropack glass works in Trezzano sul Naviglio. Why would an Irish distillery want its bottles made all the way over in Italy? The answer is simple: the Royal Oak Distillery is owned by Illva Saronno in Saronno. And that is very close by.
