5th February, 2020 by Melita Kiely

The Boatyard Distillery has signed an exclusive distribution deal with drinks agency Speciality Brands in the UK.


The Boatyard Distillery’s portfolio includes Boatyard Double Gin

Established in 2016, The Boatyard Distillery is a family-operated spirits producer based in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.

It became the first working distillery in the region for more than 130 years when it launched and is situated in a disused boatyard, as its name would suggest.

Joe McGirr, founder of The Boatyard Distillery, said: “We’re delighted to join Speciality Brands. They are a truly dedicated and passionate team with impressive knowledge.

“It’s a very important moment for us as we build the brand’s presence in a key yet competitive market and they’re the ideal partner to help us achieve our goals.”

The Boatyard Distillery’s portfolio includes three core spirits: Boatyard Double Gin, Boatyard Old Tom Gin and Boatyard Vodka.

The distillery also brings out seasonal limited edition bottlings.

Chris Seale, managing director of Speciality Brands, said: “The Boatyard Distillery presented us with the right combination of authenticity, quality and provenance.

“Joe and his team have already achieved great success in a short space of time and we’re looking forward to taking the brand to the next level in the UK on- and off-trade.”
