Not exactly a West Cork native, Christopher Mason has lived on the mainland, near the village of Schull, since 2016. Before that, he lived in Los Angeles for many years. With a digital marketing background, he has been a big driver of getting the website up to the standard it is. Also a candidate for a degree in Brewing and Distilling Operations from the Cork Institute of Technology, Mr. Mason is our Head Distiller and Operations Manager.
