Ballykeefe Distillery is proudly owned and managed by the Ging Family who trace their unbroken farming lineage as far back as written records exist. Morgan’s fascination with the shared history of Irish farming and Irish Whiskey, led him to dream of one day diversifying his farming enterprise with the addition of a distillery as was so common centuries ago. It took 25 years of research and painstaking effort to bring his dream to fruition.
He was meticulous in his vision to build a distillery which would be a worthy modern day descendant of the glorious history of Irish Whiskey. Therefore, with sustainability and protecting the environment central to his planning, no expense was spared to achieve the highest quality standards in every aspect of the distilling operation and tourist experience. The support that Ballykeefe Distillery is now providing to local sporting and cultural activities, is a reflection of Morgan and Anne’s deep roots and long standing commitment to community based activities.
