About »

The Aisling Distillery.

When we decided to build our own distillery in 2014, The Aisling Distillery, to distil small-batch whisky, rum and gin, we learned firsthand the importance of engineering-informed decisions to innovate and improve efficiencies.

Our distillery focuses on slow, smooth, soft craft spirits, inspired by our heritage and by the beautiful area where we live and work.

Today, we bring the attention to detail and problem-solving innovation we’ve learned along the way, to benefit every single customer project.
