MurLarkey is a certified Virginia craft distillery that produces award winning gluten free spirits that capture the heart and soul of our proud Irish heritage.

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 are recognized and certified by the American Distilling Institute and a Virginia Department of Agriculture certified “Virginia’s Finest” distillery.

A convenient location to Washington DC, Baltimore, and Northern Virginia, our distillery is based in Prince William Country. We invite you to visit and take a tour of our distillery and sample our fine spirits. MurLarkey is also available for purchase online SHOP SPIRITS HERE and at Virginia ABC and bars/restaurants throughout the state as well as liquor stores and establishments in DC and MD.
