The Dublin Liberties Distillery, has today announced that construction work on its new €15 million distillery and visitors centre has begun.

The project which will see the redevelopment and conservation of the 300 year old historic Old Mill Street building, will create 50 jobs during the construction stage, with a further 19 permanent positions created once the distillery and visitor centre opens.

The build on the new distillery and visitors centre will take approximately 12 months to complete. The new distillery will combine traditional distillation practices with the very latest in modern technologies and features a unique natural spring water source on site to be used in the distilling process.

Commenting on the news, Darryl McNally, General Manager and Master Distiller at The Dublin Liberties Distillery said: “Our team is working extremely hard on the new distillery and visitor centre and we are delighted that construction is underway.  Our goal is for The Dublin Liberties Distillery to become one of the leading whiskey producers in Ireland.  We are building a world class distillery in the heart of Dublin with a visitor experience like no other. It will perfectly compliment all the other developments in what is fast becoming the most exciting part of Dublin.”

Dublin based SSA Architects has been appointed to oversee the design and construction of the new distillery and visitor centre. The Old Mill Street building, a 300 year old former mill and tannery, will be redeveloped to retain the original historical architecture, ensuring the original frontage of the building is conserved.

The new Dublin Liberties Distillery and visitor centre will open in late Spring 2018.
