Gin Distillery Tour, Tasting and Lunch in Historic House - Cork
You will meet Justin who lives with his family in this fourth-generation family-owned period home. Growing up it was an active dairy farm where Justin recalls spending many a school holiday milking cows, driving tractors, feeding animals and digging holes. Situated on an estate of idyllic landscaped gardens and magnificent parkland, located in the historic region of the Munster Blackwater Valley. After a career in the management of prestigious hotels around the world, Justin returned home with his wife Jenny in 2000. His passion for food and drink led him to exploring the distilling of gin. Having scratched heads, studied tea-leaves and consulted with the wives for almost a year, Justin and his friend Anthony formally established their own Spirit Company, distilling gin on the grounds of his ancestral family home.
