The motif of the disdain for the gift of clothing also occurs in other tales where the fenodyree helps the farmer, and pronounces a similar phrase, "Though this place is thine, the great Glen of Rushen is not", and disappears somewhere. [20] John Rhys supposes that it is to Glen Rushen he has gone off to. [20] [c] Parallels [ edit ] Located in Ramsey, a small seaside town in the north of the Isle of Man, our name and visual identity is inspired by The Fynoderee Folklore Story - a traditional Manx tale set in Glen Auldyn. Weeks went by, until one evening Udereek explained to Kitty that the next night was to be the “Royal Festival of the Harvest Moon” in Glen Rushen and that it was decreed that all Elfin kind were to attend the festivities until the moon had set over South Barrule. Kitty teased Udereek, suggesting he would have such a good time at the ball that he would forget all about her and instead be seduced by a beautiful fairy maiden. Affronted, Udereek insisted this could never happen... To prove how much Kitty meant to him, he would make his escape from the Harvest Festival early (after only three hours had passed), and he would come looking for Kitty as usual under their Blue Rowan Tree.

Fenodyree (also phynodderee, phynnodderee, fynnoderee or fenoderee; Manx pronunciation: [fəˈnɑðəɾi] [1] or [fuˈnoːðuɾɪ] [4] [ IPA verification needed] [a]) in the folklore of the Isle of Man, is a hairy supernatural creature, a sort of sprite or fairy ( Manx: ferrishyn), often carrying out chores to help humans, like the brownies of the larger areas of Scotland and England. Our “green hills by the sea” are green for good reason! The Isle of Man is blessed with high rainfall and a sophisticated supply of pristine, soft water ideal for 'mashing'. Another tale describes the Fenodyree doing the farmer's work of rounding up the wethers ( gelded ram sheep) that grazed on Snaefell (mountain) and bringing them into the pen; in the process, the fairy mistakenly brought in a hare which he mistook for a little ram. [20] A rendition of this is incorporated into the story cobbled together published as "The Fynoderee of Gordon" by Sophia Morrison, where the fairy herds the sheep into a "cogee house" (a weaving house [31]), and mingled among the sheep is a big hare he mistook for a Loaghtan. [30] This has been described as "the most notable" exploit by the Fenodyree in Morrison's tale. [25] Stone mover [ edit ] Glashtyn Spiced Manx Rum - made from scratch on the Isle of Man (brewed, fermented, distilled and bottled in Ramsey) usingorganic Colombian Panela, a sustainably farmed and completely unrefined cane sugar Manx independence carries through in many aspects of life here on the Island and this freedom will allow The Fynoderee Distillery to operate and develop its own high standards of production and experimentation.Our RNLI Edition Gin has been created in partnership with the RNLI to raise funds and commemorate 200 years since the Institution was founded on the Isle of Man.

A Yorkshireman by birth, William Hillary came to the Isle of Man in 1808 and eventually established a home at Fort Anne, overlooking Douglas Bay. This was an ideal vantage point from which to appreciate the dangers faced by sailors in the treacherous Irish Sea. Fenodyree has also been glossed simply as "the hairy one" [11] or "something hairy" in Manx by Joseph Train and J. F. Campbell after him. [12] The wort is then transported to The Fynoderee Distillery in Ramsey for fermentation, where we add our chosen strains of yeast to create our house 'wash'.

Delightfully nibblesome Mezze Plates, featuring charcuterie, cheeses, honey, chutney, greens and bread from a range of stunning Isle of Man producers areserved on Friday and Saturday. Enjoy a refreshing “Fyn & Tonic” on arrival before learning all about the beginnings of our distillery, the fascinating Manx folklore that has inspired our name, our artwork and our ethos.
