Take your blooming buds down the Wild Atlantic Way, where sun-buttered fields of lovely lowing cows stretch from Mizen to Malin Head. Hares hop and flit through forests, blue as the rolling sea, which beats on the stony shore and whispers its lost love language to the proud verdant cliffs above. Home of saints and scholars, and the finest whiskeys in the world.

Kinsale Spirit Company characterises what is best about Kinsale, one of Ireland’s most vibrant and beautiful coastal towns.
A working port, renowned for its food, drink and active leisure pursuits, Kinsale has proactivity and sense of community that inspires our products. Founder and resident of Kinsale, Tom O Riordan, drew on this to establish the Kinsale Spirit Company and begin work on our award-winning brands. He bought a small still and began making small batches of gin with his sister, Clodagh, in his kitchen.
Using various botanicals, some traditional, some foraged from the local area, 60+ batches, and many sampling sessions with friends and family later, they hit on the unique recipe that is now Kinsale Gin. Licences were obtained, the first batch of 100 bottles was made up, production was contracted and the rest, as they say, is history. Tom realised he had a potential hit on his hands, so he partnered up with two local food and beverage entrepreneurs, Ernest Cantillon and Colin Ross, to help him best achieve this. Kinsale Spirit Company is now exporting its award-winning brands to China, the USA and a number of other markets.
We have launched our first foray into the exciting Irish Whiskey market with a smooth and mellow range of Irish Whiskeys, The Battle of Kinsale Series, beginning with Red Earl Irish Whiskey, now complemented by Great Earl Single Grain Irish Whiskey and Spanish Earl Single Malt Irish Whiskey. The future plans for the Company include the development of its core brands and the construction of a distillery in Kinsale, Co. Cork.
Light and fruity, with a lightly floral scent and hints vanilla with a hoppy finish.
