The Copeland Distillery, situated on the Irish coastline of Donaghadee, officially opened its doors in September 2019 and invites you to come and experience distillery life on a guided gin tour.

Located directly opposite The Copeland Islands, in what was once an old picture-house, is where you will find The Copeland Distillery.

The Copeland Distillery is where the tales of old smugglers and savage ocean battles meet the shoreline of Donaghadee. It is here that Copeland produce their range of coastal inspired spirits that were born from the history and heritage of The Copeland Islands and the surrounding area.

Experience this history unfold on a Guided Gin Tour .

Learn about the history of The Copeland Islands and Donaghadee’s first distillery. Included is a neat gin tasting sample and sensory botanical experience, a distillery tour where you will learn about our unique process of our spirit making then finish in The Copeland Distillery Hideout, overlooking scenic views of The Copeland Islands, and enjoy a refreshing Copeland G&T.
