"An Sean-Teach, meaning The Old House in Irish, is named after the traditional thatched house on the farm where we are located in Co. Laois. The Old House, Aughnacross, has a long history of cottage industry which over the years has contributed to the income of the households that reside there".
Continuing this tradition, The Old House is now home to An Sean-Teach Ltd, a boutique drinks company.
The owners, Brian Brennan and Carla Taylor, have worked together for a number of years to bring international trends in the drinks industry to local markets and take Irish influences and expertise in beverage production to global ones.
"Being part of the Food Academy and supplying SuperValu shops has enabled us to bring our products to the local market.
Our primary focus in building our company has always been jobs, to create sustainable local jobs for local people".
