Distillery Visitor Experience 2021


Join us at the home of Skellig Six18, for a Distillery Visitor Experience Tour. We’re now open and excited to welcome you.

On arrival, take in the beautiful views of the Skellig Coastline.
Did you know Skellig Six18 is named after the six hundred & 18 steps hewn into Skellig Michael, the sacred UNESCO World Heritage Site located here just off our coastline?
Let us share with you our story and the steps we’ve journeyed so far.

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 sample a taste of the Atlantic Coast with our Skellig Six18 Gin. 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.
