Gin Lover?? Become a gin distiller in an afternoon by distilling your exclusive bottle of gin (700ml) to label and bring home!!

Listoke Distillery and gin school is an exclusive all interactive experience - over 18's only.

Following a tour of the gin distillery - the only distillery in Ireland specifically focusing on gin, they go through a little bit of the history of gin - "ginformation" and explain the background to their development and their branding.

The visitor is then introduced to the collection of botanicals - up to 50 including fresh fruits, hedgerow herbs and many other spices and floral selections.
Each visitor has their individual mini copper pot to then distill their bespoke bottle of gin.
During the distillation process they serve local foods from The Boyne Valley including breads, cooked meats, cheeses and dips.
Throughout the event - which lasts 3 hours, they offer the visitor Listoke 1777 Gin and tonics while also introducing them to their Cacao and Raspberry and Sloe Gin.

Having finished the food they then dilute down the collected spirit - usually around 73% proof while letting the visitor taste it at the various stages so they can decide on the final taste and strength.

It is a very hands on and interactive event that Listoke Distillery run weekly throughout the year.

This event is part of Taste the Island
