Blacks Brewery and Distillery

Blacks Brewery and Distillery is located in Kinsale, Co. Cork.  Blacks is Ireland’s first co-located Brewery & Distillery.

Whiskey has a long and storied legacy in Kinsale. Going back hundreds of years, the town has been a popular location for both brewing and distilling.

It is here that husband and wife duo Sam and Maudeline Black founded their Brewery and Distillery in 2013. What started as a hobby quickly became a passion and the Blacks felt a desire to experiment and create.

The Brewery produces seven core beers and 6 to 10 experimental varieties each year.

In 2015 a state-of-the-art distillery was added. Blacks now produces gin, rum and whiskey. Having access to both Brewery and Distillery allows for unique opportunities to age their beers in spirit barrels and vice versa to improve the depth of flavor.

Blacks made history in 2018 with the production of Blacks Spiced Rum, the first ever rum made entirely from start to finish in Ireland.

In 2020 all aspects of whiskey production were brought in-house, so in a few year’s time Blacks’ own handcrafted whiskey will be added to their portfolio and availble to us.
