First new whiskey distillery in 125 years opens in Dublin

A new €10 million whiskey distillery is opening in Dublin's Liberties this morning.

Teeling's is the first distillery to open in the city in over 125 years - the last one closed in the 1970s.

30 new jobs have been created through the new development, which also has a visitor centre and café, while over 100 people were involved in the construction phase.

"Globally, Irish whiskey is on fire," said Jack Teeling. "It's the fastest-growing premium brand spirit in the world - and has been for the last 20 years. It's attracted in some of the largest multinational companies."

"We're a leading independent Irish whiskey company, fully owned by our family. We're doing things in a slightly different way - we're trying to bring in urban distilling, and craft distilling, into a category that's dominated by large, traditional brands."

Teeling said the company is currently involved in 35 different export markets, and the market is expected to grow by 60% between 2014 and 2019.

The visitor centre will open to paying visitors from Saturday, from 9.30am – 5.30pm every day.
