Clonakilty Distillery
Clonakilty, Co. Cork
Clonakilty Distillery in Clonakilty, County Cork is an award winning distillery owned by the Scully family. The distillery runs insightful tours, gin masterclasses and even has its own fantastic restaurant.

Clonakilty Distillery makes premium single pot still whiskey and innovative gin collections using heritage barley grown on the family farm and wild botanicals harvested from the shoreline near the iconic Galley Head Lighthouse. The whiskey is matured in the nearby Atlantic Ocean warehouse, perched on the rugged coastline overlooking the sea.

Uncover the history of the distillery and get a detailed insight into the drinks on a tour and finish it off with a guided tasting. Choose your favourite ingredients and make your own gin in the gin making school before finishing off your day with a modern, Irish meal in the distillery's restaurant.

Booking is essential for the guided tasting tour and the gin making school.
