Did you happen to catch Stillgarden in Irish Times’ Business and Innovation section this week?

As 2020 began, it was all systems go at the Stillgarden Distillery in Dublin 8, which was gearing up for a grand public opening at the end of March. Then the lockdown happened, and the fledgling business was suddenly faced with a radically changed marketplace. Three years on, however, this setback is a distant memory and the company now employs 11 people between the distilling and events side of its business.


Stillgarden is a little different from your “average” distillery as it has a community dimension which sees enthusiastic locals participate in its social botanists programme. This is run by the company’s in-house botanist and those involved help grow some of the botanicals used to flavour Stillgarden’s products. […]

Our fabulous leader Viki recently sat down with the Irish Times for a chat about our little distillery as we enter our third year of operation!

Viki talks about the Stillgarden story, from our rocky March 2020 beginnings, our post-pandemic flourishing and what lies ahead, our community and sustainability efforts, and the innovative distillation methods that set us apart – and of course the city-grown botanicals from our community garden that contribute to our modern spirits! Check out Stillgarden in Irish Times here!

We’re so proud of everything we’ve accomplished despite the challenges and headwinds, from turning a sliver of industrial wasteland into a thriving community garden all the way to using its sustainably grown botanicals to make our award winning modern spirits – and of course getting to share the Stillgarden flavours and journey with all of you!

If you haven’t visited the distillery yet, why not book an experience and come see the inner workings of Stillgarden for yourself? Or if you’re further afield and want to experience the Stillgarden flavours, check out our full range of modern spirits, bottled cocktails and merch here!
