New Tullamore Distillery open to visitors
Three different tours offered
Since September 2014 the new Tullamore Distillery in Clonmich has been producing. Now William Grant & Sons also open the doors for visitors. Three different tours are offered so everyone can chose the program matching with his interests. Irish whiskey industry is booming. New distilleries are being built, established distilleries increase their capacities. William Grant & Sons invested £ 35 mio. in building the new Tullamore Distillery to strengthen its position as one of the strongest Irish whiskey labels.
New distillery at historical place
Tullamore D.E.W Whiskey retours to the place of its former production after the old distillery had been closed here 60 years before. Four pot stills with the shape of the original ones, six fermenters with a capacity of 34.000 liters each and a warehouse for 100.000 barrels are the cornerstones of the new Tullamore Distillery. 1.5 million cases (a case means nine liters) Tullamore D.E.W. can be produced here.
