The Dublin Liberties Distillery has announced today (21 March) that the construction work which is now underway at its new distillery and visitor centre in the Liberties, Dublin City has created 50 jobs for the duration of the project.
It also outlined that the new €15 million project will support 50 jobs during construction with a further 19 permanent positions created once the distillery and visitor centre opens.
Darryl McNally, general manager and master distiller at The Dublin Liberties Distillery said, “Our team is working extremely hard on the new distillery and visitor centre and we are delighted that construction is underway.
"Our goal is for The Dublin Liberties Distillery to become one of the leading whiskey producers in Ireland. We are building a world class distillery in the heart of Dublin with a visitor experience like no other. It will perfectly compliment all the other developments in what is fast becoming the most exciting part of Dublin.”
It is expected that the build will take about a year to complete and it is aiming to open in late Spring 2018. The new distillery will combine traditional distillation practices with the very latest in modern technologies and features a unique natural spring water source on site to be used in the distilling process.
“The new distillery will provide a home for our collection of established Irish whiskey brands including The Dubliner and The Dublin Liberties, which are on sale in over 30 international markets from the USA to Australia.
"We have a very clear vision for the type of best in class liquids we want to produce and the brands we want to create under The Dublin Liberties Distillery banner”, added McNally.
The project will see the 300 year old historic Old Mill Street building redeveloped conserving the original architecture of the building.
