Tullamore Dew (new)

Tullamore-DistilleryOpened: September 2014

William Grant officially opened its new Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey distillery about a year and a half ago, marking the return of whiskey production to the site 60 years after the original distillery closed.

Following two years of construction, the distillery now features four hand crafted copper stills, which have been designed to emulate the original stills of the old distillery, six brew house fermenters each with a 34,000 litre capacity and warehouse storage for up to 100,000 casks.

The €35 million distillery will be capable of producing up to 1.5m cases of triple distilled pot still and malt whiskey, double the brand’s current global sales, which currently stand at 850,000 nine-litre cases.

    Don’t see how you can ignore the Teeling Whiskey Distillery or The Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk both of whom are in full production compared to some of the 10 who haven’t had a sod turned on their products. Very Strange

    What about the West Cork Distillery in Skibbereen, Cork. Great local business expanding with a fantastic Whiskey portfolio. Also, in FULL PRODUCTION. Not mentioned in either article?
