ORNABRAK from the Gaelic “Eorna Braiche” (Malted Barley). Crafted from 100% Irish malted barley and four times copper pot distilled, our unique single malt spirit is then distilled a fifth time with five carefully selected botanicals to create this complex and floral Irish Single Malt Gin.
Five times pot distilled
Handcrafted in Ireland
Our story begins with the fertile soils and mild oceanic climate of Southern Ireland, recognised as one of the best places in the world to grow malted barley.
Ornabrak Single Malt Gin is one of a small number of gins internationally which distils its own base spirit. This spirit is made from 100% Irish malted barley, sourced principally in the South East of Ireland from contracted growers, before being malted in Cork, and subsequently milled, milled, mashed, fermented and copper pot distilled in Skibbereen, West Cork.
Five botanicals, five times pot distilled
Starting with an initial palate of almost 30 botanicals, this was carefully narrowed down to just five, each individually chosen to create a harmonious balance with our unique Irish Single Malt base spirit.

Gin & Tonic:
Ornabrak pairs perfectly with a premium tonic water, ideally with low sugar content (such as Poacher’s Classic or Fever-Tree Light Tonic Waters). We like to garnish with a lemon zest or a slice of granny smith apple.
Ornabrak works wonderfully in martini styled cocktails. One of our favourites is The Single Malt Vesper (An Irish take on the Classic Vesper Martini)
