Plans For New €10 Million Whiskey Distillery in Dublin

Plans For New €10 Million Whiskey Distillery in Dublin

The Teeling Whiskey Company has announced plans for a new Irish whiskey distillery to be located at Newmarket Square in The Liberties area of Dublin. This will be the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years and brings the Teelings home to their ancestral roots.

The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is due to start production in the fourth quarter of 2014 with the visitor centre opening its doors in early 2015. The €10 million project will lead to the creation of at least 30 full-time jobs. The distillery will also see 50 jobs created in the construction phase.

The Teeling Whiskey brand is already on sale in Ireland and over 18 export markets. The construction of the new distillery will guarantee future supply for the Teeling Whiskey brands and allow the creation of a range of innovative and authentic Irish whiskeys based on the traditional and unique Dublin style of distillation. The proposed new pot still distillery will have the capacity to produce 500,000 litres of whiskey on an annual basis and will consist of three traditional copper pot stills reviving the traditional style of the old Dublin distilleries.

Jack Teeling (pictured), founder and managing director of the Teeling Whiskey Company, comments; “This project will bring distilling back to an area of Dublin long associated with world class whiskey which at one stage had 37 different operational distilleries. Building a working distillery is just one part of our plan for the Newmarket site which will also involve the development of an integrated visitor experience to showcase the rich distilling history of Dublin and in particular The Liberties. Dublin whiskey was at the forefront of the last golden age of Irish whiskey. We aim to revive the ‘spirit of Dublin’ by putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey firmly back on the map again.”

He adds: “It is unquestionable that there has been significant growth in the Irish whiskey market worldwide, particularly in the US, and we want to be the leaders in creating a bright new future for Irish and Dublin whiskey. The new distillery will guarantee future supply and ensure we control the distilling process from grain to bottle, whilst also giving consumers the opportunity to further interact with the brand, as we revive the old tradition of whiskey distilling in The Liberties.”
