Located just south of Belfast in the grounds of the beautiful Killaney Estate. The distillery takes its name from the nearby town of Ballynahinch, whose name in Irish translates as ‘town of the island’. Within the Hinch Distillery design we have incorporated many unique elements which will both validate our ‘craft’ credentials. The water used in the distilling process at the Hinch distillery will be the cleanest in Ireland — from the Silent Valley Reservoir. The location brings other advantages too. It’s on the main road from Belfast to the Mountains of Mourne which is one of the most trafficked tourist roads in Ireland. And of course, it’s from its hinterland that Hinch gets its moniker. Ballynahinch just up the road is Baile na hInse in Irish (the Town of the Island). The Master Distiller at Hinch has already created a series of blends (from precious whiskey stocks).
Copper gold with golden hue. The bouquet shows nougat sweetness balanced by the strong, mellow, sweet oaky flavours from the Bourbon cask which add lashings of butterscotch, fudge and bonbons to this stylish and elegant whiskey. The aromas of crisp malted barley explode from the glass, slip streamed by the freshest fruit flavours – notes of cantaloupe melons, grapes, guava and persimmon. The palate is strong and robust. A whiskey that is packed with vitality and flavour.
