A tour at Hinch Distillery is not just an exploration of history, production and their bold range of triple distilled whiskeys; it’s an invitation to sit and learn from the characters that bring it to life through an immersive sensory journey.

You’ll find this impressive distillery in the heart of County Down, nestled among the drumlins, not too far from the Mournes. Drawing its water from the beautiful Silent Valley, and sourcing local grain, here’s a whiskey that’s made from the essence of nature around it.

Beginning in the ingredients room, you’ll see the raw materials of what goes into Hinch Whiskey. Inside the spectacular distillery itself, get up close with the mashing vessels and fermentation tanks, before viewing the stunning copper pot stills; Donard, Croob and Wee Binnian – named after three local mountains. The spectrum room is a space where sensory stimulation explains how a barrel breathes life into the spirit. Things wrap up in the exclusive Tasting Bar, where guests will have the chance to sample some of the beautiful whiskeys in Hinch’s vast collection.
