Your Enquiry is required.
Founded on Winter Solstice 2014, history was made at the Shed Distillery with the distillation of the first cask of whiskey in 101 years at the time of the solar transit.

Situated in the rugged and wild surrounds of the small village of Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim, The Shed marks a return to traditional distillation using medieval copper stills and is the first multi-purpose distillery of its kind in Ireland. 

Filled with experiments and recipes for herbaceous gins, potato vodkas, handcrafted Irish Pot Still and Single Malt Irish whiskey and new liqueurs, the Shed is the brainchild of Patrick J. Rigney.

Visitors can wander through the Shed’s ‘secret tabernacle’ where new recipes are being developed, stand alongside the gleaming copper medieval stills, see the distillers in action and experience the magic.

Highlights include:
  • A look inside Connacht’s first working distillery in over 101 years.
  • See the Shed’s ‘secret tabernacle’ where new recipes are developed & distillers are at work.
  • Traditional distillation methods using medieval copper still.
  • Set in the rugged surrounds of the village of Drumshanbo, on the shores of Lough Allen.
