This will be the first new distillery in Dublin in more than 125 years. The Teeling Whiskey Distillery will start production in the fourth quarter of 2014 with the visitor centre opening its doors in early 2015, investing €10million into The Liberties-based location and creating at least 30 full time jobs. The distillery will also see 50 jobs created in the construction phase.
TWC says the Teeling Whiskey brand is already on sale in Ireland and more than 18 export markets. It says the construction of the new distillery will guarantee future supply for the Teeling Whiskey brands and allow the creation of a range of innovative and authentic Irish whiskeys based on the traditional and unique Dublin style of distillation. The proposed 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 reviving the traditional style of the old Dublin distilleries.
