Dubbed The Spirit of Dublin Teeling Distillery, the distillery will be located in Dublin’s Newmarket in The Liberties, Dublin 8 and will be capable of producing 500,000 litres of whiskey per year using three traditional copper pot stills, reviving the traditional style of the old Dublin distilleries.

The distillery is set to be operational from October this year with commissioning of the distillery commencing before the end of this year, while its visitor centre is set to open in 2015.

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 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.

“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.”
