The Teeling Whiskey Company (TWC) has announced that work has begun on its new whiskey distillery located in Dublin’s Newmarket in The Liberties, Dublin 8. The distillery will be the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years.
The distilling equipment is scheduled to arrive in October and commissioning of the distillery will commence before the end of this year. There will be more than 100 people employed during the construction of the distillery with 30 permanent jobs created following its completion.
Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of TWC commented: “We are proud to be returning to our ancestral distilling roots which trace back to 1782 in The Liberties. This project brings distilling back to an area of Dublin long associated with world class whiskey which, at one stage, had 37 different operational distilleries and was known as the ‘Golden Triangle’ due to the cluster of Irish whiskey manufacturers in one small area.”
The 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. In addition, the visitor centre will provide an experiential journey into the history of Teeling Whiskey, the whiskey heritage of the Liberties, the unique Dublin whiskey distilling process and whiskey tasting.
