Blacks Brewery

Standing proud on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way in Kinsale, Co. Cork, we are Blacks, Ireland’s first co-located Brewery & Distillery. We have been living the dream since 2013! Born out of passion by founders, husband and wife duo, Sam & Maudeline Black. What started as a hobby, after Sam was gifted a home brewing kit for Valentine’s Day from Maudeline many years ago, quickly became an obsession and a burning desire to experiment and create. It is this enthusiasm and drive that saw Blacks Brewery become a reality. Our mission is to escape the mundane of the mass market by producing beers with passion, personality and lots of hops! We have a seven strong core range, but are constantly creating new recipes and quirky flavour combinations, releasing anywhere from 6 to 10 experimental beers a year. In 2015 we expanded and added our state-of-the-art Distillery, where we produce a range of boutique spirits including Gin, Rum and Whiskey. This crossover between Brewery and Distillery is unique and gives us the option to age our beers in spirit barrels and vice versa to improve the depth of flavour. Our first bottle of Blacks Irish Gin hit shelves in 2015, and we made history in 2018 with the production of Blacks Spiced Rum, Ireland’s first-ever rum, made entirely from start to finish in Ireland.
