Hens and stags say cheers to a Clonakilty Distillery experience

The award-winning Clonakilty Distillery offers great experiences for stag and hen parties, plus wedding favours to thank your wedding guests on your special day.

With group rates available for stag and hen parties looking for a different experience, the Distillery Tours and Minke Gin School are proving very popular. The Distillery Tours take you on a guided journey through the working distillery where whiskey, gin, and vodka is produced. Get up close to the sights, sounds and aromas during this 75-minute experience, which culminates in sampling some of the distillery’s products in the Speakeasy bar. Groups have the choice of a whiskey tasting or a gin tasting as part of their experience. Group rates cater for eight to 40 people, so whatever the size of your party, events can be tailored to suit.

The Minke Gin School, a special two-hour experience for small groups, will take you through how gin is made and guide participants to create their own gin recipe. Weigh out your choice of botanicals before taking them into the distillery to distill your own bottle of gin to take home! 

For a special touch on your wedding tables, wow your guests with miniatures of Clonakilty Distillery’s favourite spirits as wedding favours. The 50 ml miniatures are available in Minke Gin, Minke Vodka, and the most popular Clonakilty Whiskeys. Miniatures are supplied in cases of 24 and special rates are available for couples looking for wedding favours. 

The family-run distillery has won several global awards for its Clonakilty Whiskey, Minke Gin, and Minke Vodka including a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition for their flagship Double Oak Whiskey. The distillery Visitor Experience, and the team who look after guests, have also scooped some special awards, with Ewan Paterson being awarded Global Visitor Attraction Manager of the year from The Whisky Magazine Icons of Whisky Awards.

Clonakilty Distillery is a proud member of Bord Bia’s Origin Green Programme, doing as much as possible to protect the special environment in its local area. Plastic-free protective packaging and, where possible, sourcing local ingredients all contribute to the distillery’s sustainability programme.

The distillery is located in the beautiful town of Clonakilty, within walking distance of many pubs and restaurants perfect for continuing your celebrations, with a variety of accommodation is available to choose from.
