Built within a restored nineteenth century mill, guests can now taste and tour their way around the state-of-the-art Ahascragh Distillery, all year round.

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. They recently announced another significant milestone for sustainability with the introduction of Ireland’s first zero energy emissions spirit. This is truly a massive achievement so if you’re curious to know more about how they are shaking up Ireland’s drinks industry be sure to join them on one of their distillery tours.

Guided tours available include; Visitor Experience & Premium Tasting Tour. Both are fully accessible and will take tour-goers on an exploration of whiskey and gin production from grain to glass and the history of an old mill with a tasting of their award-winning products to finish. On the standard visitor experience guests can enjoy UAIS and Clan Colla whiskeys and Xin Gin, while the premium tour offers visitors premium spirits expertly paired with chocolate and local cheese. After your tour, visit the onsite Old Mill Shop & Café to enjoy good food and good company in a cosy and unique atmosphere.
