Kerry distillery to develop visitor centre

Skellig Six18 is developing a €10 million micro-distillery and visitor centre along the Ring of Kerry and is expecting to invest about €4 million in the business in 2021. When it is completed it will include a new permanent visitor centre and VIP lounge overlooking the Fertha river estuary as it flows into Valentia harbour. The lounge will have a viewing deck out on to the Kerry Dark-Sky Reserve. The very best of luck to Skellig Six18 on their new venture.
