The Clonakilty Distillery is less than 15 minute’s drive from Galley Head Lighthouse and the Scully family farm. Injecting vibrant new life into the heart of the town, the Distillery has become a landmark building on the Wild Atlantic Way route. It is here that we create and manufacture premium Single Pot Still Whiskey and innovative Gin collections, using heritage barley grown on the family farm and wild botanicals harvested from our unspoilt seashores
