Five Farms Single Batch Irish Cream Liqueur 750 ml
17% ABV | 34 Proof | County Cork, Ireland
"County Cork County Cork is the largest and southernmost county in Ireland, home to the city of Cork, the second-largest city in the country. It is sometimes referred to as “The Rebel County” or “The People’s Republic of Cork,” a nod to the region’s reputation for challenging authority. County Cork’s long history of rebellion dates back to the 9th Century arrival of the Vikings and was cemented by the county’s role on the front lines during the Irish War of Independence in the early 1900s. The diverse landscape of County Cork includes everything from rugged coastline to lush countryside, dotted with quaint villages in between. The mild climate and abundant rainfall are ideal for the hundreds of family-owned dairy farms in the region, and the centuries-old tradition of distilling authentic Irish Whiskey is an industry that thrives to this day. The region is renowned for its breathtaking cathedrals and monasteries, some dating back to the 12th Century. County Cork is also home to the famed Blarney Stone and the port town of Cobh, which was the departure point for millions of Irish emigrants over a century ago and the last port of call for The Titanic before it departed on its fateful journey in 1912. Ireland is a country that is rich in history, where the traditions of the past influence the practices of the modern age. The Tradition of Irish Cream The dairy farming industry in Ireland dates back thousands of years. Temperate climate and fertile soils have long provided ideal conditions for producing milk, butter, cheese, and other dairy products. The importance of dairy farming to the Irish and their livelihood is mentioned even in Early Irish Law or “Brehon Laws,” which valued milk cows as the highest form of currency. Farmers in Cork began producing butter commercially as early as the 1700s, and it was soon one of Ireland’s chief exports. Eventually, Cork became one of the main shipping points in Ireland. The term whiskey originates from the Gaelic phrase “uisce beatha,” or “water of life.” Though it has never been confirmed, many believe that Irish monks passed on the technique after they learned to distill perfumes in the Mediterranean around 1000 A.D. The Irish adapted the recipe to make their signature whiskey. By the late 18th century, approximately 2,000 whiskey stills were operating in Ireland, only a third of which were legal, and by 1885, that number had dwindled to 28. The rise of the Anglo-Irish trade war and the invention of the Patent Still effectively shut down remaining production. Whiskey distilleries are currently experiencing a resurgence in Ireland, and contemporary Irish distillers are revitalizing the centuries-old tradition through hard work and dedication. As of August 2017, there are now 18 active whiskey distilleries in the country."

Farm-to-Table County Cork is Ireland’s largest and southernmost county, home to family-owned farms that dot the coastline where the land meets the sea. It seems to sit on the edge of the world, a rugged backdrop for the farmers who have toiled this land for generations. Five Farms is a true farm-to-table product, crafted from single batches of fresh cream that are combined with premium Irish Whiskey within 48 hours of collection to become authentic Irish Cream Liqueur. The cream is sourced entirely from five family-owned farms in County Cork, run by families that have a deep connection to the land and a passion for their craft. Made with the Finest Ingredients
Single Batch Cream: Five Farms is made with the richest dairy cream, smooth and sweet and luxurious. The mild climate and abundant rainfall in County Cork result in fertile farmland for dairy cattle, who spend their days basking in the fresh sea air and grazing on vibrant green grass. The “happy cows” of County Cork produce the highest quality milk, and the collection in single batches assures that Five Farms starts with a rich and creamy base product that is consistent from batch to batch. Irish Whiskey: County Cork is also home to the centuries-old tradition of distilling authentic Irish Whiskey. The pot stills traditionally used for distillation gave the spirit a consistency that has remained timeless. Premium triple-distilled Irish Whiskey has a smoothness and complexity that add depth to the sweetness of the cream. Five Farms contains a greater amount of Irish Whiskey than other brands on the market, setting it apart in the category and allowing for an intensity of whiskey flavor and warmth that is truly one of a kind. The result is a superior Irish Cream Liqueur with the richness of Ireland itself.
The Five Farms container is a wide-mouthed glass bottle with embossed details, in the style that dates back to the early 1900s. Its closure is a ceramic swing-top cap, adding to the authenticity of the design and the reusability of the container. The black glass creates an elegant presentation and allows the bottle to be recycled. The bottle swings from a metal handle that is easy to carry and gives another nod to milk containers of the past. The product is shipped in a case of nine bottles, allowing for delivery in a square box that recalls the wooden milk crates of an earlier era. Retail displays include replicas of the metal milk churns that are symbolic of Ireland, from their traditional use in dairy farming to their modern appearance throughout the Irish countryside, used as flower planters or roadside works of art.
