Skellig Six18 Distillery & Visitor Experience
Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry
The Skellig Six18 Distillery & Visitor Experience is located in Cahersiveen, in the town that is said to climb the mountain and look upon the sea. You will find it on the rugged Skellig coastline in County Kerry, on the scenic Ring of Kerry route. They specialise in craft gin using local botanicals.

The Skellig Six18 Distillery & Visitor Experience tour showcases pride in the Skellig coast and in the landscape, which is rich in history and character. The team were inspired by the monks who hewed 618 steps into the hard rock surface of Skellig Michael. Every drop of Skellig Six18 pot distilled gin is made there, and the team have plans for a state of the art whiskey distillery, to bring you a single pot still whiskey in the future.

The surrounding landscape is rich with natural ingredients from the woodland to the Atlantic seashore. Discover the botanical ingredients that grow there, and those that Skellig Six18 foraged and carefully chose to create Skellig Six18 Gin, such as Douglas fir, birch and yarrow, to name a few. Take the time to browse the gift shop that stocks a selection of luxury Irish brands and local craft products.

Why we like it
  • A distillery experience close to Valentia Island and the Skellig Islands, set on the stunningly scenic Ring of Kerry.
  • The craft gin is made with local botanicals reflecting the woodland and coastal environment.
  • Personalise your own gin recipe in the Gin School.
