an avant-garde movement

Ulysses is a story of revolution. "A book to which we are all indebted and from which none of us can escape." -- T. S. Eliot

Artisan Distillers

Celebrating Joyce's legacy of multiculturalism, collaborative approach to the creative process and challenging of norms.

Ulysses Whiskey x Art is an international collaboration of distillers and artists, united to create a unique collection of rare whiskeys. We are bringing together Irish, Italian, Swiss, French, German, Czech, English, Scottish, Japanese, Indian, Norwegian, American distillers and more to create a unique collection of 18 Limited Editions. Each artisanal distiller is responsible for one Episode: one whiskey, one year. 


This is our collective magnum opus in honour of Joyce, where the sum truly is greater than its parts.

During the course of the coming weeks, months and years we will be announcing new collaborations with distillers, authors, poets, performers, theatres, film-makers, musicians and more.

Ulysses Whiskey x Art is an odyssey. Join us.

Rare and Highly Collectable

Every bottle opened increases the scarcity of unopened bottles

We will release 18 limited-edition whiskeys named for the 18 episodes of Ulysses every June 16th (Bloomsday) during the course of 18 years (2024 - 2041). The final release in the year 2041 will coincide with the centenary of Joyce's passing.

We will be decreasing the number of bottles between releases in decrements of 250 (but for the last Episode, which will have only 732 bottles, to correlate with the number of pages in the novel when first published by Shakespeare & Company in Paris, in 1922).

By virtue of the 18th Episode consisting of only 732 bottles, there can only be 732 complete collections of all 18 Episodes; the rarest of collections will have the same bottle number throughout the series.

It is possible to reserve any bottle in the collection now, except for Episode 18, which are reserved for patrons that buy the complete set.

Scarcity Drives Value

“Hold to the now, the here, through which all future plunges to the past."
- James Joyce

Time Shall Be No More

The Journey is the Destination

When all is said and done, only 51,732 bottles will ever be released in this limited edition international collaborative art project; cca 10% of which will be in Episode 1, declining to only 1% in Episode 18. Patrons that order the Complete Set have the option to choose the specific bottle numbers throughout the series, e.g. bottle #7 (while available).

Patrons that wish to collect more bottles, acquire a specific bottle number or range, after an Episode is sold-out will have an opportunity to do so on the secondary market which we will curate on behalf of the Ulysses Whiskey x Art community (this is why we ask for your contact details when you register). We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions by using the form below, or send us an email.
