After two years of construction, the Dublin Liberties Distillery opened to the public on Monday 25th of February.
The new distillery features a unique visitor experience, offering an up-close view of modern Irish whiskey making, from the working distillery through to the cocktail bar for tastings. Guests will experience first-hand the sights and sounds of a real working distillery and taste a selection of Dublin Liberties Distillery whiskeys as part of their tour. Whiskey aficionados will have the opportunity to take a more in-depth look at the whiskey making process on a tour with one of the distillers, and taste some of the more exclusive whiskey expressions.
Visitors can also sample exclusive whiskies and relax in the café, or browse the on-site store, which offers a range of branded merchandise and whiskies.
Production of the Dublin Liberties Distillery’s whiskey portfolio – which includes brands The Dubliner Irish Whiskey and The Dublin Liberties Irish Whiskey - will now commence at the new distillery on Mill Street under the supervision of Master Distiller, Darryl McNally.
Darryl McNally commented: “Making whiskey is my passion, my lifeblood, and to be doing it in the heart of Dublin’s historic distilling district is nothing short of a dream come true for me. I believe the future for Irish whiskey is in innovation and pushing the boundaries – and that’s what I’ll be working with the team here to deliver – the best Irish whiskey you could have the luck of getting on your lips. We’re inspired by the past, but not bound by it, and can’t wait to show the world just how diverse Irish whiskey can be.”
