Great Northern Distillery

Located in the former Great Northern Brewery site in the border town of Dundalk in County Louth, the Great Northern Distillery will be a positive powerhouse of whiskey production in Ireland.

Established in 2015 by John Teeling, the distillery will follow the extremely successful strategy of producing whiskeys of varying styles for 3rd parties such as pubs, supermarkets, independent bottlers & brand makers.

Capable of producing all four types of Irish Whiskey; Single Malt, Single Pot Still, Single Grain and Blended Whiskey, Great Northern can make a whiskey to satisfy any taste, style or pocket you desire.

Casks Away looks forward to these whiskeys appearing in stores around the world soon, as well as guiding you to this impressive facility.

Dingle Distillery

Dingle may have risen to fame with the exploits of Fungi the Dolphin, but a new kind of spirit is continuing the attraction, whiskey.

Dingle 2

Dingle Distillery was the first of the next generation of Irish Whiskey Distilleries to release it’s own whiskey to much acclaim.

Bottles of the early batches now go for crazy money on the secondary market.

Dingle 3

The latest offering, Batch 4, is of a far larger production run that will hopefully see the whiskey available on a worldwide scale.

Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way set in the stunning scenery of County Kerry, Dingle Distillery is a must see for any fan of Irish Whiskey.
