What a way to spend a wet afternoon. The staff were all brilliant. Everyone we met were all buzzing, all really interested in the project, so proud of the enterprise. The tour itself was really interesting . Best whiskey tour in Dublin

Dedicated people, happy to see you, warm welcome. Most interesting visit for this "boutique" size distillery. Everything is class, meticulous, organized with taste (pun intended). Speaking of taste, they make beautiful product there. Go and see it for yourself!
