Double Gin

ABY 46%

Size 70cl / 5cl

Still: 'Doc Brown'

Organically produced wheat spirit is macerated for 18 hours with 8 different botanicals, including Sweet Gale which has been harvested from the family farm.

We also use lemon peel which we take from unwaxed lemons on the day that they are to be used for ultimate freshness.

As our spirit runs off the still we introduce a unique juniper filtration process which Dutch gin spirit distillers call ‘dubbel gebeide genever’. This double contact method results in an even more pronounced juniper flavour. The collected spirit has pure water added to it before resting for a minimum of 2 weeks before we bottle and label.



Old Tom Gin

ABY 46%

Size 70cl / 5cl

Still: 'Doc Brown'

Boatyard Old Tom Gin is the second product to be launched from The Boatyard Distillery and the first of its kind to be launched in Ireland.

Our Old Tom has notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla and cinnamon spice, with a silky orange finish.  It is slightly sweeter than London Dry but drier than Dutch genever - thus sometimes referred to as ‘the missing link’.

Old Tom Gin was a gin recipe popular in the 18th Century, where the illegal, home-made, harsh gins of the time were sweetened with liquorice or sugar to make it more palatable to the masses.  Some say takes its name from an illicit method of dispensing gin in the 18th Century.




ABY 41%

Size 70cl / 5cl

Still: 'Mr Fusion'

The Irish wheat for our vodka is carefully selected from what we consider to be the best growers in Ireland.

Our seed-to-sip ethos means that we can trace the wheat used in each individual bottle back to the farmer who grew it and even the field in which it was grown.

This approach gives our small batch Irish vodka a unique and complex flavour.

We don’t filter our spirit at all, we believe this allows you to enjoy the unique flavour of our Irish grain vodka in the way that we intended it – pure and unedited.



About Us

The Boatyard Distillery is an award winning farm-to-bottle distillery located on the banks of Lough Erne in north west Ireland. Only the best organic ingredients have been chosen for each of our products with the terroir of the land at the forefront of each new spirit. Our gin botanical, Sweet Gale, is foraged from the family bog and the wheat used for our vodka can be traced from the bottle back to the very field it came from.

Founder, Joe McGirr, has utilised his background in spirits and whisky knowledge to build his dream of the first legal distillery in Fermanagh in over 130 years. Joe’s dream to build a distillery in the place in which he grew up was inspired by his family’s rich farming history - from grandad Brian who was a ploughing contractor to father Michael who was a dairy and beef farmer. It’s great to now be able to give something back to the land; all of our spent grain from our spirits go back to the land and the cows and we claim the happiest cows in Ireland!

“Agronomy of the land is important to us at Boatyard, it allow us to capture the character of Fermanagh in our spirits”.
– Joe McGirr, Founder of The Boatyard Distillery

Declan has strong ties with our beautiful County Fermanagh, with his parents living only a few miles from the distillery and some of his family having worked with the McGirr family on the farm in years gone by.
