The distillery was established in 2012, the dream of a local man called Shane Braniff. He had previously created & established a number of other brands, which included Strangford Gold and FECKiN Irish Whiskey.
However the origins does not just start here, we have to go back three centuries to the first inhabitant of the estate. Dr Robert Echlin, from Fyfe in Scotland He set up home at the Abbacy in the Upper Ards area, who was ordained as the Bishop of Down & Connor in 1613.
It was his great great grandson Charles Echlin who bought the two story property in Rubane in the early 1700s and renamed it the Echlinville House & Estate. It may have changed down through the years but the majestic house still provides the perfect backdrop to exciting new times for the Echlinville Distillery.
The Echlinville Artisan Craft Distillery is the first licensed Irish Whiskey distillery in Northern Ireland in over 125 years. Set in the magnificent grounds of the Echlinville Estate, an ultra-modern state of the art distillery, capable of producing the finest Irish Malt and Pot Still whiskeys.
The current range of maturing stock will allow the company time to release Pot Still & Malt Irish Whiskeys from August 2016. In the meantime they are taking care of the barrels filled with the finest distillate, casked between 63.5% & 70% abv. The whiskey is triple distilled for perfection.
