Another name added to the famous Liberties distilleries.

Ireland’s latest craft distillery, based on Old Mill Street in the Liberties has finally opened its doors.

The €10 million Dublin Liberties Distillery is in full operation and ready for visitors.

The 400-year-old building in the area historically known as home for many Dublin’s distilleries was renovated to be opened for a new life as the Dublin Liberties Distillery.   

Opened in late February, the distillery has the capacity to produce 2.1 million bottles of whiskey annually and the ability to accommodate up to 80,000 visitors each year.

Visitors can sample exclusive whiskies and relax in the café, or browse the on-site store, that offers a range of branded whiskies and merchandise.

The Liberties are known by its whiskey producers such as The Dubliner, Irish Whiskey and The Dublin Liberties Irish Whiskey. Now these famous brands are joined by the new distillery on the Old Mill Street, which will be supervised by Master Distiller, Darryl McNally.

The new distillery already offers its visitor variety of great Irish whiskeys from other manufacturers. However, it will take a while for the new distillery to be able to treat its visitors with their own production, as it takes anything from three years to 12 years or longer for an Irish whiskey to mature.

Darry McNally, the director of Irish whiskey for Dublin Liberties Distillery, said at the opening event: “There is a liquid that can be sourced from various distilleries around Ireland and what that does is let us get into the market with our brands before we build our distillery and then we make our own whiskey.”

The new Dublin Liberties Distillery opened right at the time when the popularity of Irish whiskey continues to rise worldwide, with fast growth of Irish whiskey dominating today’s global liquor market.

The new distillery is open for visitors since 25th of February. Visitors can choose from a number of experiences on various levels of interests, from simply tasting whiskey to becoming the connoisseurs.

Visitors can experience first-hand sights and sounds of a real working distillery and taste a selection of the finest Dublin Liberties Distillery whiskey as part of the provided tour.
