Rademon Estate Distillery has said that it is set to 'treble production capacity' having completed a €2.8 million redevelopment of its distillery.
The makers of Shortcross Gin said that its new its still house has been totally transformed with the addition of two copper stills, which will increase the distillery’s production capacity to over 50,000 litres of alcohol per annum.
The increased capacity afforded by the new stills will enable the Co. Down-based spirit-maker to increase its production volumes as demand for Shortcross Gin grows globally.
“The completion of this sizeable investment marks an important milestone for Rademon Estate Distillery, as we upscale our production to meet growing demand for Shortcross Gin,” said David Boyd-Armstrong, head distiller at Rademon Estate Distillery.
Single Malt Irish Whiskey
On the back of the ongoing growth within the Irish whiskey category, Rademon Estate Distillery has also increased both its brewing and distilling capacity by over 500%, as it continues production of its single malt Irish whiskey.
This investment includes the installation of a 1,750 litre copper pot still that is dedicated to whiskey production, while additional fermentation capacity has also been added within the still house.
Boyd-Armstrong added: “This is also an exciting time as we prepare to test the first batch of our new Single Malt Irish Whiskey, with a view to release later this year, or in early 2019.”
The completion of the 20-month investment programme reportedly also includes the addition of a contemporary new visitor experience centre.
