Morgan & Anne Ging wanted to revive a lost tradition of family farm distilling and in so doing hand on to their children a more diverse, ecological and sustainable family operation.
The opening of the first whiskey distillery in over 200 years in the medevial capital of Ireland, also restores a historical Irish custom of family farm distilleries from centuries past, growing their own barley to produce their own whiskey and feeding the byproducts of distillation to the cattle on the farm. This unique operation from “Our Field to Your Glass” operation has no off-farm by-products contaminating the environment.
Everyone benefits from a greener world and we are delighted that our tourists are playing their part in increasingly looking for sustainable experiences on their holiday. We must all protect the natural environment for future generations to enjoy. Ballykeefe Distillery is excited to team up with An Board Bia “Origin Green” and a number of Ireland’s distinguished academic institutions as strategic partners to advance the protection of our beautiful environment.
