"Runway 28 Irish Craft Gin has given me a great opportunity to merge my experience from various industries! Aviation & Luxury Product development are both work arenas that I've loved - I'm grateful, and excited to find out where this new journey will take me!" - MarieAnn Mc Loughlin Dwyer Co. Founder

I've worked as a cabin crew member with Aer Lingus,  as a producer, & have held various roles over the years in product development (Retail in Motion) and Luxury goods retail (Jo Malone of London)



“If life gives you Juniper berries, make Gin!”

Take one Irish Aviation company, with two aviation professionals, then add a turbulent pandemic to the mixture, what do you get? Well in MarieAnn's case, a brand-new Aviation themed premium Irish Gin, with a just a hint of pepper.


Co-director MarieAnn Mc Loughlin Dwyer, with a background in both aviation and product development, and wife to one of Irelands many grounded commercial airline pilots, researched, studied, and blended in collaboration with family distillers & recipe experts at Listoke Distillery in Co. Louth, to craft and create Runway28 Premium Irish Gin.


“Runway28 Gin is a small batch, hand crafted, aviation inspired, premium artisan gin. It's uniquely lightly spiced taste, is the result of it's multi-botanical fusion, with "just a hint of pepper". An aromatic exploration, that will excite any gin lovers palate!!


“The gin business for me, is the perfect combination of all that I’ve learned over the years, much of which I owe to my time working within the Aviation Industry. Teamwork, communication, goal setting, and hard work, all remain constants for me from my early days of training as a member of cabin crew with Aer Lingus back in 1999, to my subsequent days working with Ryanair, and many other airlines traveling from base to base as a product developer and trade show host.”


We may be a Small Nation, but we do get Big Ideas!
