Our story

our attitude

Here at Stillgarden we make modern Irish spirits for the modern spirit drinker. Based in the buzzing area of Dublin 8 we are passionate spirit lovers who are facing forward not backwards.

Enjoying spirits should be more modern, more fun and more vibrant with more flavours and more positive impacts on the planet & people. We call this pro-social disruption (or modern craft)

We make modern Irish spirits using as many fresh, local & sustainably grown botanicals as we can and capture those amazing flavours through some very cool science. 

Our spirits aren’t just focused on high ABV but have a range of alcohol to allow you to match the drink to the mood & occasion.

And we make our spirits in a way that has positive impacts on the planet, communities and people around …always.
