Slane Castle, north of Dublin, is currently having a distillery built courtesy of a joint venture with Brown-Forman, which owns leading bourbon brand Jack Daniel’s. The JV amounts to a $50 million investment from the US drinks giant. The new brand comprises a blend of grain and malt whisky aged in virgin oak, seasoned bourbon and oloroso sherry casks and was launched at Dublin airport.
