Ten years ago, we set out to make the world’s most delicious tasting cream liqueur. The finest single malt Irish whiskey was selected and blended with real Belgian white chocolate and fresh, natural dairy cream to create an experience that was both smooth and original. Coole Swan has won countless awards since it broke onto the market. It’s been such an incredible journey that sometimes it’s hard to remember where it all began.



Our family comes from a long line of farmers. Based in the rich Boyne Valley of Co. Meath. Many people said it took a lot of courage for us to blaze a new path. Others said we were just mad.  We think it was our sense of adventure. When we realized we had something unique, we had to create a bottle to show just how special it was, and when it came time to give the drink a name, it was in W.B. Yeats who we found our inspiration.



Philip and I along with a small team of brilliant people set out to make a high-quality small-batch Irish Cream Liqueur using only the finest ingredients on our own terms. Though it often seemed like we were going against the grain, at each step along the way we were simply staying true to our vision. The company remains proudly independent and actively small. We never could have predicted that we’d wind up where we are today. Coole Swan has taken us on a trip that we never want to end. If you’d like to join us, all you have to do is hand us your glass.

Coole Swan is the best tasting Irish Cream Liqueur…do not just take our word for it. Try it yourself. Pour a measure of Coole Swan into a frosted glass of ice and you’ll experience the rich scent that’s softened by the spicy, sweet and nutty tones of our triple distilled single malt Irish whiskey. Coole Swan is complex, mellow and fresh. It is best drunk on its own, neat, or over ice but always chilled.

Our small company got its start in the wake of a lot of global turmoil. It meant that we were unable to build our own distillery. We found a fantastic partner 20 minutes from our farm. We mix and bottle Coole Swan at Terra Manufacturing, Ballieborough Co. Cavan, a family business like Coole Swan who helped us to bring our dream to life.



Coole Swan is a family business and is managed by husband and wife team Mary Sadlier and Philip Brady. They’re constantly juggling the excitement of running things while raising their three daughters – Ruth, Laura and Katie.

That means when you contact us, you really are talking to a family. If you have any questions visit our Contact page. We’re always happy to say hello.
