Dr Terry Cross OBE, Chairman of the new Hinch Distillery, will provide visitors with a highly differentiated experience that conveys his ambition to produce whiskies that are inspired by the traditions and skills of the Gaelic peoples who ebbed and flowed across the Irish Sea, from this part of County Down, throughout the centuries.
The 30,000 sq ft, two-storey building will include a large whiskey and gin distillery producing the Hinch Irish Whiskey and Ninth Wave Gin brands. The new building will feature a visitor centre, coffee shop, retail area, outside courtyard space and bar/restaurant.
Fully trained guides will bring visitors on an exciting and informative journey that will include a history of Irish whiskey and its unique distilling process, tutored tasting sessions, and also a specific gin tour where visitors will have the opportunity to develop and bottle their own gin recipe. The visitor centre will be able to accommodate more than 100,000 visitors a year and is scheduled to open early in 2021.
Hinch Distillery, which is named after neighbouring Ballynahinch, will become an attraction in its own right and offer guests a real understanding of the skills and methods needed to produce these award-winning spirits.
