William Grant & Sons, the independent family owned distiller and owner of Tullamore DEW Irish whiskey brand, has officially opened its new €35 million state-of-the-art whiskey distillery in Tullamore, County Offaly in Ireland. The opening of the new distillery, following two years of construction, marks the return of whiskey production to Tullamore 60 years after the original distillery closed its doors.

Indeed, the Tullamore Distillery is the first new distillery to be constructed on a greenfield site in Ireland in over 100 years and is one of the most significant investments to date in the resurgent Irish whiskey sector. It is also one of the largest projects undertaken by William Grant & Sons. Located on a 58 acre site in Clonminch on the outskirts of Tullamore, the distillery will be capable of producing the equivalent of 1.5 million cases of Tullamore DEW annually.

The distillery was built to meet the growing international demand for Tullamore DEW, which is now the second largest Irish whiskey in the world.

“This new facility will secure our future production demands for the rest of the century as Irish whiskey embarks on its most exciting chapter yet,” says Stella David, chief Executive of William Grant & Sons. “We are committed to Tullamore D.E.W. and are focused on building the brand and investing for the long-term.”

Caspar MacRae, Global Brand Director, Tullamore DEW, comments: “This development has been met with great anticipation in our markets around the world – with consumers in Central Europe, the Nordics, North America and emerging markets like South Africa and Russia keenly following the success of Tullamore DEW and Irish whiskey.”
