The Dublin Liberties Distillery has revealed that its new craft distillery will open in October, creating up to 20 jobs.
Located at Old Mill Street in Dublin’s Liberties, the distillery development has seen a complete renovation of a 400-year-old building, preserving its original architecture and façade. The new distillery is targeting 80,000 visitors in its first year.
Upon completion in October, production of all of the company’s whiskey brands, including The Dubliner Irish Whiskey, The Dublin Liberties and The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey, will move to The Dublin Liberties Distillery.
Master distiller at The Dublin Liberties Distillery Darryl McNally commented, “We’re a boutique distillery, so we bring a craft sensibility to everything we do, from the design of our building to the making of our whiskeys. We’ve taken care to source the best equipment, which will help ensure we produce the very best premium whiskeys with real character. My vision for the whiskeys made at The Dublin Liberty Distillery is to produce an innovative range of double and triple distilled malts, using only the finest ingredients and local water from our borehole on site. We are effectively bringing Dublin back to where it rightfully belongs at the epicentre of whiskey in Ireland.”
