The Listoke brand is embodied in our owl, whose leafy wings are bursting with the botanicals of our gin. There have always been owls in the barn that now houses the distillery on the Listoke Estate. It is in homage to these owls that the wings are wrapped affectionately around the bottle. Two barn owls still live on the estate, “Gin and Tonic”.
The bottle is square with strong tapered shoulders giving way to a narrower body, reflecting the strength and body of the gin. The square bottle was also chosen with ease of use in mind, especially for a busy bartender.
The guardians of Listoke, the Barrow & Gogan families are direct descendants of the Stein, Haig and Jameson Dynasties in Kennetpans in Scotland. The first official record of Gin appears in their family history in 1777.
“What a gin. Punchy and bright, it really is amazing liquid which doesn't have to rely on hype or backstory, you just need to try it!”
— Paddy Noir, Renowned Drinks Consultant Dublin
“A huge thank you to Blanaid & all the team at Listoke Distillery for hosting such a great evening. Greeted with a large glass of Listoke 1777 Gin, accompanied by Fever Tree tonic, ice, black peppercorns and a shaving of lemon, our first instruction was "don't let your glass go empty!”
— Pat Beechinor, Listoke Gin School Visitor from Kinsale, Co. Cork
“We really enjoyed the day at Listoke Gin School and highly recommend it. We were so impressed by both the passion and enthusiasm of the Listoke team, matched with the unique and authentic location. It's a great idea for a couples day out or as a group as friends. We're hoping to visit again!”
— Gerry Murray, Listoke Gin School Visitor from Fingal, Co. Dublin
“Listoke 1777 Gin is bold and full of flavour. As soon as you open the bottle you are greeted with a bountiful aroma with floral, fruity and earthy notes. The gin has personality, impressive depth of flavour and a complexity that reveals piney juniper, citrus and herbaceous notes, and a lingering finish with a touch of spice. Best enjoyed in a gin and tonic, Listoke 1777 Gin is versatile, with orange peel, rosemary and cinnamon all producing moreish servings.”
