Started in 2012, the Echlinville artisan distillery was the dream (now reality) of a local man called Shane Braniff. In 2004, Shane previously had created & established a number of other brands, which included Strangford Gold and FECKiN Irish Whiskey.

However our story does not just start there, we have to go back three centuries to the first inhabitant of the estate. Dr Robert Echlin, who travelled from Fyfe in Scotland, set up home at the Abbacy in the Upper Ards area, & became the Bishop of Down & Connor in 1613. It was his great great grandson Charles Echlin who bought the two story property in Rubane in the early 1700s and renamed it the Echlinville House & Estate. It may have changed down through the years but the majestic house still provides the perfect backdrop to exciting new times for the Echlinville Distillery.
