Hinch (taken from Ballynahinch, meaning ‘town of the island’ in Gaelic) is set amongst County Down’s rolling green drumlin hills. They have created a distillery that has aspirations well beyond 'the ordinary', ambitions to be creative well beyond 'the easily achieved'. County Down has a strong distilling history and from the late 18th to the early 20th century was home to seven Irish Whiskey producing distilleries.
Inspired by the distilling traditions and skills exchanged over the centuries during the ebb and flow of Gaelic peoples across the Irish Sea. Informed by the past but looking to the future as they create Irish whiskeys that are reassuringly smooth yet very distinctively richer and bolder in character. Join them for a whiskey tour through their custom-built glass distillery and learn what goes on behind the scenes. Not a whiskey fan? They also have unique Gin tours where you can learn about making Gin and develop your own recipe.
