There's a new premium Irish gin in town, and it goes by the name of Bonac 24. 

It's expertly balanced, offering a blend of natural botanicals which deliver hints of citrus, mint and star anise. 


This is the first product from a boutique distillery in Newtownmountkennedy, County Wicklow. Bonac 24 was created by 25 year old entrepreneur, Gavin Clifford, and his father Michael. They became business partners following Gavin’s return from New York, where he had been working in the drinks industry.

The dreamy Bonac 24 is crafted in very small batches, and then corked and labelled by hand.

And for those of you wondering about the name...

Bonac 24 is inspired by the summers that Gavin spent working in The Hamptons. This area is affectionately known to the locals as Bonac, named after the Accabonac harbour and creek.

Bonac 24is now available nationwide in O'Briens, Mitchell’s (IFSC and Glasthule), Blackrock Cellar (Blackrock), Whelehan’s Wines (Loughlinstown), Higgins Off Licence (Clonskeagh), L Mulligan Whiskey Shop (Powerscourt Centre) or Celtic Whiskey Shop (Dawson Street). 

The new artisan gin is also available in some of Ireland’s bars and restaurants.
