Lillie’s Bordello has opened the doors of Lillie’s Laboratory, Ireland’s first ever nightclub micro-distillery. The Porterhouse Group have taken their expertise in craft brewing to the next level and into the world of craft distilling.
At the launch last Thursday, David Morrissey of the Porterhouse Brewing Company said it is “the best thing to happen to the Irish drinks industry since the term Mixology”. See the gallery from the night below.
Guests can unleash their inner apothecary spending two hours creating their own flavoured gin or vodka as part of a private event or experience the nightclub distillations which take place Thursday through Sunday.
Guided by experts, guests will learn and taste the art of distilling, with some unique samples along the way. Some of the flavour combinations are fairly straightforward: Apple Vodka, Kiwi Vodka, Cucumber Gin. There are more adventurous ones too like Orange and Juniper Gin, Beetroot and Ginger Vodka and Chili Chocolate Vodka.
Using their award winning knowledge, mixologists will help guests design their own personal combination of Lillie’s Bathtub Gin or Vodka and one lucky member of the group will also walk away with a 500ml bottle of the spirit they created; hand waxed, and personalised with their name.
Times are available during both day and night to suit your needs, making this a perfect experience for any celebration.
