Echlinville Distillery

Established in 2012, Echlinville Distillery was the dream of local man, Shane Braniff, and in 2013 it became Northern Ireland's first licenced distillery in over 125 years. Since then, his hard work has paid off as the distillery and brands are now firmly established in the whiskey industry, winning gold at the World Whiskey Awards and the Irish Whiskey Awards.

The new ultra-modern state of the art distillery, set in the magnificent grounds of the Echlinville Estate on the picturesque Ards peninsula, has rich soil, saline air and a temperate climate that contributes to producing the finest Irish Malt and Pot Still whiskeys.

Unusually the barley, used for each base spirit, is grown in the estate’s surrounding fields and floor malted in house (most other distilleries buy in their already-malted barley).

There are four brands produced by the distillery: the historic Dunville’s, the extremely popular Jawbox Gin, the self-titled Echlinville Gin and the modern and quirky FECKiN range - the brainchild of the founder Shane Braniff. Read more about these brands here.

  1. The Echlinville Irish Pot Still Gin Miniature 5cl
    A miniature glass bottle of the superb Echlinville Gin from the Lecale Peninsula in Northern Ireland. Echlinville Distillery grow the barley used for the base spirit on the estate and it's malted on a farm close by. To give it a unique flavour they've chosen local botanicals, such as gorse bush petals and Strangford Lough seaweed. The result is a gin with the essence of the land and sea. If you prefer a gin cocktail then try it with elderflower tonic, a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint, as Echlinville suggest, or just sip it neat. There’s a hint of the homegrown barley on the nose along with fresh floral and citrus notes. While in the mouth the gin has anise and lavender flavours that make way for juniper and coriander notes. Sweetness carries on throughout, with a malt character and creamy mouth-feel seldom found in modern gins. Learn More

    Sir Robin of Locksley Distilled Artisan Gin (ABV 40.5)
    This Sheffield gin has up-front juniper with more delicate aromas of elderflower bubbling through. It is deliciously smooth and round on the palate with warm cassia notes soothed with dandelion. Pink grapefruit adds an underlying sweetness and lingering citrus finish.

    Gin MG, The Extra Dry London Gin (ABV 40.0)
    GIN MG, created in 1940, has been made by following the traditional London Dry Gin method that does without using cloying sugars that mask juniper flavours.

These berries are hand-picked in October and re-selected again in Vilanova before distillation.

  8. Jawbox Classic Dry Gin Belfast Cut
    Rating:
    100% of 100

    Celebrating The True Character of Belfast… There was a time when the front door was left unlocked. When the kitchen was the scullery. And in the tiny scullery stood the Belfast sink (aka the Jawbox, as a lot of craic was heard around it). And it still is with this terrific Gin named after the Belfast Sink.

    Jawbox Gin is a classic dry gin that is produced at the Echlinville Distillery in Kircubbin, Northern Ireland. Hand crafted under the watchful eye of the Jawbox founder Gerry White. There are a wealth of botanicals used to flavour this superb gin: Coriander seed, orange and lemon peel, angelica root, cassia bark, almond, licquorice, orris root powder and black mountain heather.

    Try Something different: Gin and Ginger Ale Jawbox are proud of what they have brought to the world, so they ask you to set aside the usual in favour of the unusual and raise a glass with Jawbox Gin and Ginger Ale. Thank you Belfast!

  10. Dunvilles Three Crowns Irish Whiskey

    Until recently the only place you could find a bottle of Three Crowns was at auction. Now, Echlinville distillery has revived this great whiskey to bring its flavour to a new generation. The original "Three Crowns" was introduced way back in 1830's and lasted around 100 years before being discontinued. Many bottles are still in circulation and the original style of the whiskey was similar to Dunville's "VR" with the "Three Crowns" using more sherry casks for the maturation.

    It's a blended whiskey made up with 4 year old grain, 10 year old malt and 15 year old malt finished in Oloroso casks. This heavenly selection makes an eminently drinkable dram with a sweet and smooth palate and a soft, lingering finish.

  11. Dunvilles Peated Three Crowns Irish Whiskey

    The owner of  Echlinville Distillery, Shane Braniff, had a dream that he would bring Dunville's whiskey back to the world, 80 years after the last Dunville's whiskey was distilled, and he has. Not only the award winning Dunville's PX but also the Dunville's Three Crowns and now this, peated to perfection!

    Find aromas of light honey and mocha with a little light smoke drifting over. The palate is long and slightly fruity with over-ripe gooseberries, while mocha and smoke make their quiet pleas for attention on the finish. Think butterscotch, subdued smoke, milk chocolate, stewed pear, earthy, vanilla, cinnamon and dried apricots.

    “Even people purporting not to like peated whiskey will have a problem finding fault with this. This is a rare treat of an Irish.” Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2018

  12. Dunvilles VR Single Malt 10 year old Irish Whiskey

    After the success of the very modern Feckin' Irish Whiskey brand, Northern Irishman Shane Braniff of Echlinville Distillery was inspired to draw on a little heritage, so he bought the rights to the famous old Dunville's brand.

    There are over 100 years of, sometimes turbulent, history in the family owned distillery (and tea importer). The VR 10-year-old has been their most popular whiskey, launched in 1837 and named after Queen Victoria, when she ascended the throne. Unfortunately, Dunville & Co. was liquidated in 1936 due, in part, to family tragedies and Prohibition in the USA.

    The 10-year-old is a very intriguing release, with plenty of orchard fruit, custard and old fashioned sweetie notes. It was crowned Best Irish Single Malt Under 12 Years at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards and was honoured with this accolade again in the 2016 Awards.

    WORLD WHISKY AWARDS 2015 and 2016 - Winner of the Best Irish Single Malt in category '12 Years and Under'

    With a complexity seldom found in such a delicate Single Malt, this expression is worthy of its Royal Ancestral past, this legendary whiskey will once again take its rightful place amongst the premier whiskeys of the world. - 2015

    The nose is sweet and varied with cake spices, dried apple, poached clementines, vanilla and gentle, toasted oak. The palate is thick and spicy with sandalwood, musky spice, nutmeg and all-spice, vanilla and some citrus pith. Juicy and pleasant on the finish with some lingering wood. - 2016
