Can you order/book online? Yes.

The Boatyard Distillery is an award winning farm-to-bottle distillery located on the banks of Lough Erne in north west Ireland. Only the best organic ingredients have been chosen for each of our products with the terroir of the land at the forefront of each new spirit.

Our gin botanical, Sweet Gale, is foraged from the family bog and the wheat used for our vodka can be traced from the bottle back to the very field it came from.

Founder, Joe McGirr, has utilised his background in spirits and whisky knowledge to build his dream of the first legal distillery in Fermanagh in over 130 years. Joe’s dream to build a distillery in the place in which he grew up was inspired by his family’s rich farming history - from grandad Brian who was a ploughing contractor to father Michael who was a dairy and beef farmer.
