Set-up in 2017 by Morgan Ging & his wife Anne, Ballykeefe Distillery is an eco-friendly, Single Estate Irish Family Farm Whiskey Distillery, located in picturesque countryside, just 15 minutes out-side the medieval city of Kilkenny, producing a range of premium spirits. A ‘field to glass’ family operation, every grain of barley in our Whiskey is sown, grown, harvested, milled and distilled on our family farm. Located in the area where the birth of Irish Whiskey was first recorded in 1324, Ballykeefe Distillery is a multiple award winner for quality and sustainability.
A tour of Ballykeefe Distillery is a must for anyone with an interest in Kilkenny’s historical association with Irish Whiskey. Our guided tour enables guests to explore our distillery and discover the ancient art of Irish Whiskey making and the craftmanship that goes into each of our casks. Guests will experience first-hand the sound, smell and feel of a fully operational distillery, with a behind-the-scenes tour visiting each stage of the brewing and distilling process. Guests will sample the spirits in the repurposed horse stable which now serves as the tasting room, with its high ceilings, exposed brick and reclaimed wood tables and bar, fresh with knowledge of their history and the craftsmanship devoted to their making. The duration of the tour is approx. 1 hour.
Guided Distillery Tours are offered on a request basis. Tours may be arranged, Monday to Friday (excl. Bank Holiday Mondays), subject to availability, from April to October.
