Distillery Visitor Experience 2021


Adhering to Government guidelines, our fully-guided Distillery Visitor Experience tour will not re-open until July 5th 2021. Until then, if you are nearby or planning a trip to Kerry, we are open and invite you to join us for a Gin Tasting Experience.

Join us from 5th July 2021, as we re-open our fully-guided tours of the Skellig Six18 Distillery.

On arrival, take in the beautiful views of the Skellig Coastline. Then step inside the home of Skellig Six18, we’re excited to welcome you.

Our location here on the Skellig Coast has a landscape rich with natural ingredients from the woodland to the Atlantic seashore. Learn more about these botanical ingredients that grow in the woodlands, hedgerows and shoreline, and each of the local botanicals that we have foraged and carefully chosen to create our Artisan Pot Distilled Gin.

We have ambitious plans to build a state-of-the-art whiskey distillery plant, but this process is one that takes time, patience, and maturity – we’re willing to wait. We’ll guide you through traditional Irish whiskey production methods and share our whiskey plans.

Visit our bespoke Italian 500L Gin Still and discover the unique process we take to create Skellig Six18 Gin. Relax and savour the taste of the Atlantic Coast with a memorable gin tasting experience. You’ll also receive an exclusive €5 voucher, redeemable against a 70cl bottle of Skellig Six18 Gin available in the on-site Gift Shop, following the tour.

Join our Foireann Six18 whilst you’re here and stay up to date with all the Skellig Six18 news.
