Kinsale Gin has elegant amounts of juniper with notes of meadowsweet, elderflower and elderberry combining with aromas of lemon verbena and lemon germanium.  Other interesting and unusual botanicals underscore Kinsale Gin’s complex personality.

Kinsale Gin is currently distilled by the team under the watchful eye of master distillers while the search continues for a perfect home in Kinsale.  This is a labour of love so compromise is not on the cards!
