Ahascragh Distillery Ireland's first Eco-Distillery

Built within a restored nineteenth century mill, Ahascragh Distillery is Ireland’s first zero-emissions distillery and offers a unique experience for all whiskey and gin enthusiasts and those interested in history, tradition and craftsmanship.

Run by husband-and-wife team, Gareth and Michelle McAllister, Ahascragh Distillery is powered through innovative use of wind and solar energy combined with high temperature heat pump technology, a first for the Irish drinks industry. Ahascragh Distillery has reached another significant milestone for sustainability in the Irish drinks industry with the introduction of Ireland’s first zero energy emissions ‘New Born’ spirit. Upon reaching maturation, ‘New Born’ will first flow into UAIS. Their range of award-winning products include the Xin Gin, UAIS Irish Whiskey and Clan Colla Irish Whiskey.
