Come and Explore

The Echlinville Distillery Tour & Tipple offers offer a real insight into the workings of Northern Ireland’s first newly licensed distillery for over 125 years.

Enjoy welcome refreshments before following the journey of our spirit from ground to glass. Hear about our commitment to provenance and how we sow, grow, harvest and floor malt all our own barley on our distillery farm.

View our beautiful copper stills and enjoy the earthy aromas of our whiskey maturation warehouse – but be careful not to disturb our sleeping casks. And after you have discovered how we capture the flavour, colour and mouthfeel of our spirits, relax and enjoy two drinks of your choice in our bar.

A great day out for any spirits enthusiast.
