GIN HAS NEVER TASTED SO GOOD

BOOK NOW

The Bonac Spirits Distillery is a small family distillery based in Newtownmountkennedy, owed and operated by a father and son team. We had a passion seeing how craft spirits were made, and meeting the people behind the brands, so much so, that we eventually graduated to opening our own distillery and have been making Irish craft gins for the past 3 years.

Now we want to open up our doors and share our passion with you!! We have developed our Gin Making Experience to give you, and all the craft spirits lovers the chance to get hands on and make your own bottle of gin. The experience is extremely enjoyable, fun, and hands on!

Guests will arrive to our distillery and be greeted with a Bonac Irish G&T before learning a bit behind our distillery and brand. Our experienced distillery will then guide you through how you will be making your bottle of gin. Finally, you will get hands on, smelling and tasting all the ingredients, before choosing exactly what will go into you gin. Our expert distiller give you a helping hand along the way so that you will make the best gin possible suited to your taste!

Finally, we will put all of the ingredients into your miniature still, turn it on, and the wait begins. While the gins are distilling, we will take a guided tour of the Bonac Spirits distillery, have some more food and drinks, and talk all things gin. When the gin is ready, you will help to blend, bottle and label your gin, all ready to take home.

The Gin Making Experience lasts aprox 3 hours, and each guest will receive 3 drinks, some food, a guided tour of the distillery, the gin making experience, a bottle of personalised gin, and a gift bag to take home.
