Spirits and passion Owners are so passionate about their product! It's a little distillery, family business, yet very interesting to visit. We were welcomed by the owner and she told us the story of how it all begun, what is the technological process and provided tasting of gin and absent with different complimentary adds. We had a great time and felt like talking to a group of friends. Must visit if in Cork!

Charming & enthusiastic This was fun. Tiny distillery with personality. Met the founders and makers. Enthusiastic presentation of (currently) their gin and absinth. Good tasting (G&T + absinth straight) . Bought a bottle to present for my friends at home. A bit cumbersome to get to (and from) but worth the trip. Taxi needed.

A great place to visit We had an excellent visit to the distillery with a long history. A very interesting and informative tour by Rosheen. A great product with a genuine family back story. Well worth a visit when you are in Cork. I recommend this place.

Rebel City Gem I was the only person to sign up for my time slot but the tour still went ahead. Roisín gave me the VIP treatment, combining great knowledge of her subject with lots of warmth, enthusiasm and humour. I really enjoyed the whole experience (not to mention the delicious sampling) and although I've lived in Cork all my life I still learned a lot about the history of this part of the city. Roisín was a great ambassador for Rebel City Distillery.

We had a wonderful tour around this cozy and full of passion place. Bhagya is amazing host and she loves what they are doing. The gin is very soft but full of taste. Love how the spices work together to form such a warm and rich taste. That's great to see how such people are passionate about their work and appreciate every detail - starting from taste and even in decorations and keeping the style of the old factory. Must see in Cork and a wonderful gin to taste!

An absolutely fabulous experience - we did the Tipsy Tea for a small hen party. Bhagya is such a beautiful host, she looked after us all so well. We loved learning about the distilling process, and the Maharani gin is just sublime! We were also lucky enough to get a taste of their absinthe which was delightful - unexpectedly! Gorgeous afternoon tea treats to accompany it all. Could not recommend Rebel City Distillery more highly. A magical oasis so close to the city centre.

Everything about the Rebel City Distillery experience is fantastic. From the minute I contacted them about our hen party celebration they were so accommodating and did everything to ensure a brilliant day was planned. Bhagya is the most wonderful host, so fun, lovely and knowledgeable. Nicky and Niamh hosted our cocktail making class and they were great fun and we loved all the cocktails. The whole experience was great craic and our hen and hen party had the best afternoon. The building is so cool, the gin is gorgeous and we couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Thanks for an amazing afternoon. Would recommend to anyone visiting Cork 💙🍸😍

Such a lovely intimate experience. A brave decision to set up a brewery. Lovely gin, and welcoming hosting from Bhagya. Thoroughly recommended. Suffice it to say we bought our gin. A must do if you have an hour to spare in Cork.

Róisín was a brilliant, friendly, energetic guide. We had a beautiful experience and great overview of gin and absinthe making. We got to smell the herbs and spices that go into the gin such as Juniper berries. The complimentary drinks were wonderful and don't worry if you are driving - non-alcoholic versions are also available! Questions about the process were also welcome which was a plus. Overall a very productive evening! Highly recommended if you are curious about Ireland's first absinthe!!
