The distillery will be located in Dublin’s Newmarket Square in The Liberties, with production due to start toward the end of 2014.

Up to 50,000 visitors are expected to be welcomed into the distillery in 2015.

The proposed new pot still distillery will have the capacity to produce 500,000 litres of whiskey per year and will include three traditional copper pot stills reviving the traditional style of the old Dublin distilleries.

Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of the Teeling Whiskey Company said: “We are proud to be returning to our ancestral distilling roots which trace back to 1782 in The Liberties. This project will bring distilling back to an area of Dublin long associated with world class whiskey which at one stage had 37 different operational distilleries.

“Building a working distillery is just one part of our plan for the Newmarket site which will also involve the development of an integrated visitor experience to showcase the rich distilling history of Dublin and in particular The Liberties. Dublin whiskey was at the forefront of the last golden age of Irish whiskey. We aim to revive the Spirit of Dublin by putting Dublin and Teeling Whiskey firmly back on the map again.”

Teeling added: “It is unquestionable that there has been significant growth in the Irish whiskey market worldwide, particularly in the US, and we want to be the leaders in creating a bright new future for Irish and Dublin whiskey. The new distillery will guarantee future supply and ensure we control the distilling process from grain to bottle, whilst also giving consumers the opportunity to further interact with the brand, as we revive the old tradition of whiskey distilling in The Liberties.”

Teeling Whiskey is currently on sale in Ireland and in more than 18 export markets.
