Boatyard Distillery Ltd is an award winning farm-to-bottle distillery located in Northern Ireland on the shores of Lough Erne in Co. Fermanagh. It is the first working distillery in Enniskillen since 1887. The director and founder, Joe McGirr, has years of extensive experience in the spirits industry across London and Scotland. He was brought up on a farm outside Enniskillen and he had always loved the idea of using his knowledge and experience to start a distillery in the area he was raised. Now the cows eat the spent grain from the spirits.
For the Boatyard Double Gin, organically produced wheat spirit is macerated for 18 hours with 8 different botanicals. It is brought to life with earthy tones from the family farm foraged botanical, Sweet Gale.
As the Double Gin spirit runs off the still they introduce a unique juniper filtration process . The collected spirit has pure water added to it before resting for a minimum of 2 weeks before they bottle and label.
Boatyard Old Tom Gin is the first of its kind to be launched in Ireland. It is made using Boatyard Double gin, rested for a minimum of 4 months and then Fermanagh honey is added. It has notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla and cinnamon spice, with a silky orange finish.
Boatyard Vodka is the first seed-to-sip vodka in Ireland. Made using organic Irish wheat grown in Co. Kildare, each bottle can be traced back to the farm and field it came from. It has a creamy smooth character, exuding notes of black pepper, orange zest and beeswax with a subtle vanilla sweetness.

As if their fabulous drinks weren’t enough, Boatyard Gin is now in chocolate form! They’ve teamed up with The Proper Chocolate Company from Dublin to make a Bean to Bar Double Gin chocolate treat. It is made with organic cocoa from Tanzania and the spent gin botanicals. Pleasantly dark at 68 per cent. The first batch sold out within 20 minutes!
Why not try some with some neat gin or a gin and tonic? Or maybe all three?!!
