New Vodkia & Whiskey Distillery Opens Just Outside Belfast
A new County Down family-owned distillery has opened following the investment of almost £1m which also includes the production of two premium spirits using locally sourced ingredients aimed at the home and export market and is set to generate 40 new jobs over the next five years .
R&R Distillery Ireland Ltd is located on the Ballygowan Road in the Castlereagh hills in state-of-the-art purpose-built premises where the two new spirits are expertly crafted. Backyard Whiskey is distilled from carefully fermented grains aged in wooden casket, and Backyard Vodka is made with organically grown wheat and branded with the iconic Harland and Wolff, Samson, and Goliath Cranes, to promote the authenticity of these uniquely Northern Ireland products. The husband-and-wife entrepreneurs who own the distillery, Robin and Reyna Herron from Bangor, say it has been a labour of love from inception to finally getting their drinks into the hands of customers.
