No stranger to bucking trends and breaking ground, Listoke was the distillery behind Ireland’s very first Gin School back in 2016, welcoming thousands through their doors to distill their own gins and learn about the craft since then. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, Listoke Distillery was the first distillery in Ireland to pivot to producing hand sanitiser, leading the charge for an entire industry to come together to combat Covid-19 supplying schools, businesses and households, not to mention thousands of litres donated to the most vulnerable in the society.
”We always try and do something a bit inventive at Listoke,” Sarah McAvinchey, Head of Sales, says, “raffles have come and gone for houses and cars on social media and because we’re a family company we thought “we have the ability to raffle shares to try involve people in what we’re doing!”. Whether you win or not, every entry is helping support a small Irish business grow into a successful future.”
