Starting with a meager 23-gallon copper still and a dream, second generation Irish-American cousins Tom Murray, Mike and Jim Larkin, along with a small team of friends and family, set out to create a legacy. Drawing on each other’s professional backgrounds, and skill sets, the team began distilling high-quality, small-batch spirits. Distilled to perfection, packaged with pride and delivered with cheer, MurLarkey embodies the Irish heritage, culture and love for life upon which it was founded.
We’re in the business of bringing people together to celebrate life and share simple pleasures. The best craft spirits make the best craft cocktails and our creative geniuses have struck the right balance of prestige and playfulness. It’s all about having good clean fun!
At MurLarkey, we support local farmers and we are proud to be 100% FARM-TO-FLASK. All of our ingredients are sustainably sourced here in Virginia and we hand (nose) select only the highest-quality, all-natural raw materials, grains, and botanicals. All of our premium spirits from our 100% all-natural infused whiskeys to our botanical gin are all free of artificial flavors, free of artificial colors, and certified gluten-free.
Our international award-winning collection of small-batch spirits were thoughtfully designed making it effortless to create and enjoy unique and delicious craft cocktails – something for everyone – classics to avant-garde. We make it fun and easy to take your bar – and your shared experiences – to the next level.
