About O'Shaughnessy Distilling Co.
Keeper’s Heart Whiskey is first and foremost the story of family. Started by cousins, their whiskey was created to celebrate the spirit of family, support the community and leave a meaningful legacy for generations to come. They believe that the spirit of family is the strongest positive force in the world and they are committed to creating the moments that bring people together.

To realize their vision, they knew they needed their own whiskey. To blend the best of Irish and American traditions, they created O’Shaughnessy Distillery in their hometown of Minneapolis

O’Shaughnessy Distillery was built in an old potato factory and features the key to making Irish style whiskey: their three beautiful copper pot stills.
