Kells Gin originated in Kells Co Meath, formally known as the monastic capital of medical Ireland . Kells Gin took inspiration from Colmcilles monks who were not just accomplished scholars and scribes but also master brewers and distillers. The distinct notes in Kells Gin are influenced by the Victorian era which saw Kells again rise in prominence for its craftsmanship when the women of Kells produced the famous Kells lace. The Kells lace patterns were deliberately chosen to represent the local foliage and so were predominatly floral and foliate. Today the ingredients of Kells Gin mirror the innovative lace designs ensuring a taste of Kells in each pour.
