Award winning spirits crafted in the heart of the Ards Peninsula
The Echlinville Distillery became the first newly licensed distillery in Northern Ireland for over 125 years when it began production in 2013. It has since established itself at the forefront of Ireland’s spirits renaissance and is home to some of the north’s best-known spirits including the iconic Dunville’s Irish Whiskey, Echlinville Gin (winner of the coveted Three Star rating at the Great Taste Awards), Jawbox Gin and Bán Poitín.
A ‘field to glass’ farm distillery, Echlinville’s new-make spirits are distilled from barley grown and harvested from their own fields and floor malted on their distillery farm. Their story is one of provenance, pride in their roots in the Ards Peninsula and devotion to the ancient art of distilling.
Echlinville offers a range of visitor experiences including distillery tours and tastings, afternoon teas, unique overnight ‘stay and distil’ experiences and private group tours.
