Skellig Six 18 Distillery


Although all of Ireland is currently on Lockdown due to the Corona Virus, we at Go Wild Magazines are continuing to remind our online readers of the wonders of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. In doing this we will also highlight our amazing clients so that you can support them when the lockdown is lifted and we have beaten the virus.

Skellig Six18 Distillery was born out of the Skellig community that took on seemingly impossible challenges built at the edge of two worlds in Cahersiveen, the “town that climbs the mountain and looks upon the sea.” For centuries, communities have settled within the raw beauty of this land and seascape until both the area and its devoted inhabitants have gained a reputation for being wild and free.
Within this setting, experience a guided tour of the newly opened Skellig Six18 Distillery in the company of a local storyteller
to discover how Skellig Six18
is crafted as a premium artisan Irish gin using local botanicals. Learn how the Distillery’s name was inspired by the UNESCO world heritage site (on the nearby Skellig Rocks) where sixth century monks hand-crafted six hundred and eighteen steps on the island’s rockface to reach their monastery. There is also a special opportunity to witness the evolution of this distillery that is in the process of expanding through the installation of a brand-new whiskey distillery. Opening Summer 2020, Book Online.
