We are a husband and wife team.
Our passion for spirits blossomed while we were living in London, where we spent our spare time collecting premium spirits, hosting gin parties, and visiting distilleries. Tom was working in finance and Nicola was a teacher but soon after returning to Ireland we decided on a career change fuelled by our love of spirits. We spent the next two years researching and learning about distillation, spirit production and botanicals and in 2018 launched Sixling gin, all whilst raising our first baby – Eva. We have since added another little girl Hayley to the team with our third team member due in January 2021!
Starting and growing our family whilst launching and growing our family business has certainly kept us busy but we relish the opportunity to work hard on the things that are truly important to us.
We are based in our local town of Dundalk and it is especially important to us to give back to our community and employ local people. Although a young company, we have already sponsored several local community events as well as our town football club – Dundalk FC. We are also working closely with the local university and are providing ongoing placements for several students.
