Teeling Whiskey Distillery

When Teeling Whiskey Distillery opened it’s doors back in 2015, website here, it marked the return of Irish Whiskey Distilling to Dublin after an absence of nearly 50 years.

Founded by Jack and Stephen Teeling, sons of the famous John Teeling, they assembled an experienced team of players, as well as plenty of maturing whiskey stocks, after the buyout of Killbeggan and Cooley Distilleries to Beam back in 2011. Irish Times article here.

Roe & Co Distillery

After an absence of a few years, Diageo have returned to Irish Whiskey Distilling with a fabulous new distillery in the historic Liberties area of Dublin.

Inspired by the great George Roe Distillery of the 1800’s, the new Roe & Co design incorporates a green colour scheme throughout in homage to the pear tree that still stands beside the George Roe windmill nearby.

The former Guinness Power Station now contains the three shiny copper pot stills of Roe & Co. as well as a comfortable and well appointed bar.

The highlight of the tour is the opportunity to make your own cocktail using Roe & Co’s signature blended whiskey.

You can also bottle your own whiskey from two exclusive casks on the site.

Let Casks Away whisky you there for a memorable day out.

Pearse Lyons Distillery

Opened in 2017, Pearse Lyons Distillery is not like any other distillery.

Built into the former St James Church with its surrounding graveyard the 2 slightly unusual copper pot stills take pride of place at the altar.

Lovingly restored by Deirdre Lyons, wife of the late Dr Pearse Lyons, founder of Alltech, the distillery is packed full of stories, history, culture & spirits of the alcoholic kind!

The full range of Pearse Whiskeys are available to taste as part of the tour. Many include single malts made by the very stills, Mighty Mollie and Little Lizzie, at this fabulous distillery.

Dublin Liberties Distillery

Dublin Liberties Distillery is the latest whiskey distillery to open it’s doors to visitors in Ireland’s Capital City.

Located in the historic area of The Liberties, the distillery combines tales from the past mixed with a thoroughly modern twist to showcase their range of fine single malts and blends.

Production has already started and fully guided tours allow a close up look of how whiskey is made.

It will be a few years yet before their own distillate is matured, but in the meantime you can sit back and enjoy a few samples in the sumptuous bar, or even a cuppa tea and a snack in the downstairs cafe.

Immerse yourself in the ‘rebels, rascals and raconteurs’ of Irish Whiskey.
