Ha’Penny Gin School at Pearse Lyons Distillery


Ha’Penny Gin School at Pearse Lyons Distillery is Dublin’s ultimate Gin Experience. Located on the grounds of Dublin’s only boutique distillery, the Gin School will be housed in newly restored early 20th Century townhouses in the heart of Dublin’s historic Liberties. Bearing the name of the iconic Ha’Penny Bridge, Ha’Penny Gin School brings people together for the ultimate Gin Experience, where they will distil their own unique gin. During this two-hour gin experience, guests will don their aprons before entering the gin school where they are surrounded by scores of botanicals. Our in-house experts will guide guests through the history of gin. They will also enjoy a sensory experience while choosing their botanicals before putting their miniature copper pot-still to work. While the mini pot stills are bubbling away, local seasonal bites will be served and paired with our signature Ha’Penny Gin and Tonic. Once the unique gin is distilled, guests will get the opportunity to check the alcohol strength, gaining approval from our in-house experts. Guests will then bottle and seal the 70cl bottle before adding a personalised label ready to take home.
