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).
Crystal clear in colour. The bouquet is rich and smooth, with a hint of vanilla, chased by more traditional juniper and citrus notes. Finally fresh berries complete this luxurious scent. The palate is soft and full, gently giving way to light peppery freshness and orange citrus. Vanilla and a burst of fruity blueberries give a finish that is long and distinctive, leaving you to explore more flavours as it develops.
