Join us on a tour of the Echlinville Distillery for a real insight into the workings of Northern Ireland’s first licenced distillery in over 125 years. Travellers will be personally welcomed and guided through the process, from the barley arriving from the fields, through to the maturation warehouse where the Angels are certainly enjoying their share.

View the beautiful copper stills and enjoy the earthy aromas of the whiskey maturation warehouse – but be careful not to disturb the sleeping casks. After you have discovered how they capture the flavour, colour and mouthfeel of the spirits, relax and enjoy two drinks of your choice.
