Had a fantastic time at the gin distillery. Our guide Cathal was vey knowledgeable and friendly. There is a very nice gift shop also.
The gin tasting was delightful, we will go back again especially to try their own brand of whiskey which should be ready in a few years.
If your down in south Kerry I highly recommend taking the tour.

This is a fantastic addition to South Kerry in a fantastic location as you leave Cahersiveen to sample the other delights South Kerry has to offer! Caroline the tour guide gave a fantastic tour and needless to say, the gin is outstanding! The view from the distillery is fabulous. Well worth stopping on your next visit to Kerry, I’m glad I did!

Our tour guide Cathal was knowledgeable and friendly.

The tour was interesting but brief as the distillery is still not fully operational.

Our highlight was the aromatic section of the tour - where we learnt about the local ingredients that go into the gin - and the tasting at the end!

Had a wonderful time being shown around the distillery. This gem is such a welcome and wonderful addition to the local community and a perfect thing to do perhaps on a day when the weather of Kerry lets you down.

Loved how the botanicals help teach about how they have incorporated the local area into their gin.

The best part, of course, is the tasting session at the end - delicious!

Highly recommend!

Excellent tour of the factory. Saw the still and process including the locally foraged botanicals used for flavour. Friendly tour guide and lovely short film. Sampled the gin with ice and tonic followed by locally produced skellig chocolates. Would recommend. Glad we purchased a bottle and glasses in the lovely gift shop afterwards.

From the botanicals to the video to the bar, an absolutely brilliant tour. Tour guide had a great sense of humour and was filled with knowledge not only of the distillery but the surrounding area too. Would absolutely recommend to anyone for a great day out!

Fantastic little experience; the fact that the place is not complete (due to Covid), in a way adds to this - it will be beautiful once at 100%, but right now you get the see a fledgling business plant it's roots and start to make it's mark - and you become part of that process.

The staff are lovely - Cathal (who done our tour) really knows his stuff, and obviously loves talking about it, which is fantastic - no boring droning here!

I look forward to coming back when the whiskey stills are in place, and seeing how far they come.
