Our Craft Gin

Our Irish Artisan Pot Distilled Gin is distilled in small batches, hand finished here in our Distillery in Cahersiveen, County Kerry.

Each local botanical has been carefully chosen, filled with flavour that creates a unique Irish Gin.


We are inspired by the character and resilience of the monks who hewed six hundred & 18 steps onto the hard rock surface of Skellig Michael out there on the Atlantic, to reach their 6th century monastery built on the edge of the world.

Each member of our team is “hands-on” for every step of the way. Working together on spirits that we can all be proud of. We hand-finish each bottle at the distillery. This means we can ensure excellence with every drop.

Unique Botanical Ingredients

Our location on the Skellig Coast has a landscape rich with natural ingredients from the woodland to the Atlantic seashore. Collaborating with sea foragers, land foragers, chefs and fishermen we have been on a journey of discovery, selecting a range of unique local botanical ingredients for our gin.

The Ingredients

Taste through collaborations:

Throughout our journey to create a unique Irish craft gin, true to our landscape and community here on the Skellig Coast, we have collaborated with experienced, talented people. Collaborating with sea foragers, land foragers, chefs and fishermen we have been on a journey of discovery, selecting a range of unique local botanical ingredients for our gin.

Our locally-based sea foraging experts, John and Kerryann Fitzgerald, supply Irish Dillisk to us from the pristine beaches of Derrynane.

Paul Quinn from Nádúr Collective shared his vast foraging knowledge and helped us experience all that our beautiful landscape has to offer. Our new gin reflects what we learned and truly represents this place we call home.

Skellig Six18 Gin, The Ideal Aperitif

Developing a complex liquid, rich in flavour and depth means our Skellig Six18 pairs beautifully with a variety of foods. The perfect aperitif to stimulate your appetite.

We launched our gin in Dublin’s Michelin starred Chapter One Restaurant. “It’s a real food gin,” Head Chef Ross Lewis noted as the carefully paired hors d’oeuvres were served.
