CELEBRATING MOMENTS ALONG LIFE’S JOURNEY

Here on the Skellig Coast of Co. Kerry, at the South West corner of Ireland, we are known for our tenacity,

Muinína mindset of calm assured confidence

and grit. The kind of grit that reaches for opportunity.

Our Distillery & Visitor Experience is located right here on the Coastline, in Cahersiveen where the mountains meet the sea. The same wild landscape that motivated sixth-century monks to build their monastery 11km out in the Atlantic Ocean. From a small landing cove on granite rock, they crafted six hundred and eighteen steps to reach their monastery on the top of Skellig Michael.

This feat, their journey, inspires Skellig Six18 today.

Our Whiskey

Here, in our remote corner of the world on the Atlantic Coastline, we have been building a world-class Irish whiskey, Distillery and Visitor Experience. The plentiful rain rolls in off the Ocean, producing the purest water supply. The clean air hits our casks, infusing them with Atlantic-aged flavour. Guided by the same stars our ancestors used for navigation and exploration, we are creating liquids that are unique to Ireland’s first-ever “Hope Spot”, a place considered integral to the health of the Ocean. Find out more about our Six18 Step Collection, from which we have launched our first release, Triple Cask Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, the first ever release of a a Single Pot Still Irish whiskey with a peated taste profile, reflecting our coastal landscape surrounded as we are by Atlantic Peatlands, and also the maritime history of this Skellig Coast.

Our Gin

Our uniquely Irish gin captures the essence of our home on the Skellig Coast by incorporating four wild, locally grown botanicals. We explored the land and sea on our gin journey, tasting wild and natural ingredients brought forth from the Atlantic Ocean to our woodland. Our chosen core botanical ingredients, Douglas Fir, Birch, Yarrow and Dillisk, were carefully selected with input from renowned Irish Chef, Ross Lewis. Each has its own individual flavour profiles which combine to create an Irish gin that competes on an international stage.
