Bringing gin and jobs to Cork city - Rising Sons Brewery produce new gin 

Cork brewery, the Rising Sons Brewery has produced a gin for the first time that it hopes will win the hearts of Corkonians and gin-lovers across the globe.

This new product, called Rising Sons Gin, is bursting onto the gin scene with zesty orange, jasmine and a spicy finish, bringing with it a recollection of an Indian Summer.

Due to the natural fresh botanicals, this unfiltered Gin goes cloudy over ice.

There’s a world-wide thirst for Gins across demographics and this locally distilled Gin is expected to win over taste buds the world over after it becomes available from November 2.

The new gin follows the recent successes for Rising Sons Brewery at the international World Beer Awards and the national Irish Pub Awards.

“Wanting the brewery to continue on its trajectory to even more success, a diversification into the world of gin was just what the doctor ordered,” explained Head Brewer, Shane Murphy, who came up with the recipe.

“We are a family-owned brewery; quality focused, traditional but imaginative, and a mix of the old and new.

“We won’t stop creating and bringing our unique flavours and offerings to the local community and further afield,” he added.

With the recent announcement that plans were afoot with planning permission already granted for an additional location across the road, excitement is growing for the further unveiling of the plans for a new brewery and distillery for gin and vodka to add to its portfolio.

The Gin will be available from all Cork Heritage Pubs from the 2nd November. Picture: Michael O'Sullivan /OSM PHOTO

This brewery together with its sister companies under the discerning eyes of owner Benny McCabe, brings to the Cork employment landscape over 200 employees across its pubs and brewery.

Partnering with an indigenous bespoke distillery in order to start their distilling dreams, ahead of their own build, has yet again added to its employment offering.

With demand for their beers ever-increasing, and dreams of new distilled products coming to the fore, Rising Sons is hard at work to make these dreams a reality.

Speaking about these expansion plans, owner Benny McCabe said:

“We’re in a really unique position as our five-year business plan that we came to the table with on day one has thrived exponentially.

“Working with an Irish craft distiller, we have also been able to realise our dream of becoming Gin producers.

“We believe creating a partnership like this, will not only allow our brewery to grow and diversify and increase job generation but it’s also exciting to share our knowledge with this new partner under the direction of our brewing team Shane Murphy and Kieran Foley,” he added.

“Our team will continue to take the lead in being as innovative and creative as they always have been with regard to these recipes.”
