Gin, Vodka, and Absinthe tastes!Never better than Rebel City Distillery! Thanks be to Bhagya and hubby for the most amazing distillery tour of craft, small batches! Maharani symbolizes revolutionary spirits and figures of female empowerment; the tribute. The botanical flavors of Kerala, India are organically grown by a cooperative, then distilled in Cork, to produce unique gin, vodka, and absinthe.

Very Enjoyable & Informative We had a great time at the distillery. Loved our hostess, who is one of the co-owners. Her enthusiasm and humor made the talk regarding the process of making their products very informative and enjoyable. Had a great time and would recommend it as top activity for those visiting Cork.

A unique tour in a unique historical location for a unique gin. A unique place in cork! The amazing vibe from the building comes from the great artistic and Indian decoration, as well as from the owner herself (who was our guide). The tour is a mix of fun historical quizzes, observation skills and spices discovery. It’s a great activity to do with family and friends. The gin, the absinthe and the vodka are all great and flavourful. No wonder they won some awards!

A great experience It was a lovely tour. Learning the story of the building and how the decision of opening the distillery came about gave a feeling of familiarity.

Great time, great tasting Excellent little tour and a real hidden gem in Cork. I'm always keen to find something new whenever I come home and this tour is right up there with the best of them so far. Bhagya was a great storyteller and we hugely enjoyed learning about their inspirations for creating all their spirits and the importance of blending both their backgrounds to create something uniquely Cork. Tastes pretty good too! Definitely recommending to anyone who's travelling to Cork!

Incredible! Will 1000% be back! I did a cocktail making class as part of my hen and I couldn’t recommend it more! The building is beautiful, the hosts were so fun and energetic (especially Bhagya) I loved absolutely every second!

Definitely worth a visit.. Really enjoyed the tour and informative talk. It was very informal and the tour guide(also part owner of the distillery) spoke with passion and knowledge about Cork and the distillery, by explaining the history of both. The tasting session was very good and I left knowing a lot more about Gin and its origins. Would definitely recommend a visit.

El producto es increíble: una ginebra de excepción, un vodka 100% local y una absenta indescriptible. La absenta nos sorprendió tanto que nos llevamos unos cuantos botes de vuelta a España para dar de probar a la familia y a las amistades (también nos llevamos ginebra). La mejor que hemos probado nunca, sin duda. La visita guiada es muy recomendable y necesaria para conocer en profundidad la producción y la historia de la destilería. Cuando conoces a Baghya y a todo el equipo no solo te enamoras de lo que producen, adoras también la historia que hay detrás. El buen trabajo, la responsabilidad y el compromiso se notan y mucho. Es un gran proyecto del que disfrutar y disfrutar con otros. Visita IMPRESCINDIBLE cuando estás en Cork y con mucho vínculo con lo local también (no voy a hacer spoiler... ¡Ve y pruébalo).

Be it for a distillery tour, spirits tasting, cocktail competition, there is always something fun going on. TheirMaharani gin is amazing and the owner Bhagya is great at story telling and has a great energy, she will make you feel welcome.

Bhagya put on a great tour and it was nice to have a truly delicious gin. Will definitely be looking up Maharani gin and other rebel city distillery products in the future.

We took part in the combo tour (visit + cocktail class), it was one of the best experiences we had in Cork! The gin is exceptionally good but the real surprise was Bhagya, she was a charismatic host, she made us passionate about this story of rebellion, women and gin! I highly recommend this experience

My sister and me visited Rebel City Distillery during our Holidays. We were very lucky and had a Tour just for ourselves. We Had a fabulous time with Bhagya and a good chat. She told us a lot about the History of the distillery and it all works. All spirits were really good but we absolutely Loved the Gin. Thank you for the great experience.

This is not your average distillery. The rebel spirit can really be felt here. We were super kindly treated, and the tastes were something special to experience. The building itself is already worth a visit. Lots of history and authentic details from its previous purposes still remain today. On top of that the distillery has cleverly added details and art to that. Make sure to go here, if you have the chance.

My daughters hen group went to the distillery yesterday. What an enjoyable afternoon we had. Our hostess could not do enough for us. She gave us a very informative talk on the history of the place, how the company started and the making of the gin. We are all now experts on gin and making cocktails 🍸 and tasting them. Everybody went home very very happy. Would highly recommend this distillery for an event.

We did the distillery tour and cocktail making class yesterday for a hen and it was honestly a great experience. The music and vibes were great. We got so many drinks and definitely got value for our money and had a great evening. I'd highly recommend
