Stillgarden Social Gin
Ireland’s first community sourced Gin.
Ireland’s first community produced gin. Created with our Social Botanists, mint and lavender was grown at home and then planted in our Community Garden. Above all the final blend was chosen after a Social Botanists focus group tasting.
Founded in May 2019 the award winning Stillgarden creates Modern Irish Spirits for the Modern Spirit drinker.
Our Modern Irish Spirits include a range of mid strength aperitifs that are unique and these outsell our gins. We are the only Irish Distillery producing aperitifs.
Why not join our community?
Our Social Botanists (Socbots) Campaign, invites people in the community to take hydroponic grow kits and grow botanicals at home, when ready they replanted in our onsite community botanical garden. The same group were harvest the ingredients and decide on the final flavour profile of our Social Gin. A truly socially sourced gin.
The Socbots group meets regularly for gardening, foraging, wildlife walks and community clean ups. After that the group enjoys a drink at the distillery.
Irish Spirits tend to be traditional, looking at the past for provenance. Stillgarden looks forward: using modern equipment and groundbreaking technology to create flavours and spirits like no other. We will own Modern Irish Spirits.
Everything we do is with purpose and with our 3 pillars of Science : Community : Nature in mind.
At Stillgarden we love to break the traditional rules of distillation and flavour creation using equipment rarely seen in a distillery. Vacuum distillation, Apeks supercritical flavour extraction, rapid ageing baths, centrifuge, to name a few.
We created an onsite urban community garden from an area of wasteland next to the distillery, where we plant botanicals, pollinator friendly plants and wildflowers. We grow as much as we can in our community garden and use the botanicals to make our drinks.
We took are area of wasteland next to the distillery and created a community garden where we grow some of the botanicals used to make our drinks.
Stillgarden Social Botanists (SocBots) are a group of garden budding botanists that we recruited, Stillgarden provides grow-kits and seeds for the SocBots to grow botanicals at home and when they are ready for ‘Big School’ they will transplant into the garden.
Stillgarden Social Gin was created with the SocBots. Once the botanicals were ready to harvest, we invited the group down to have the ultimate say in the final flavour profile of the gin, which is full of vacuum distilled flavour led by Juniper, Lavender & Mint. Ireland’s only Socially Sourced Gin.
We organise regular meetups with the SocBots where they will partake in gardening, foraging, wildlife walks & litter cleanups. These are very popular and SocBots are rewarded with a Stillgarden Drink at the end of the session.
