New Distillery Construction Underway In Dublin

The construction of a new distillery in Dublin is underway.

The new Teeling Whiskey Company distillery will be built in The Liberties, and will see some 100 jobs created during construction.

"We are proud to be returning to our ancestral distilling roots which trace back to 1782 in The Liberties," Founder and Managing Director of the company, Jack Teeling said.

Adding: "This project brings distilling back to an area of Dublin long associated with world class whiskey which, at one stage, had 37 different operational distilleries and was known as the 'Golden Triangle' due to the cluster of Irish whiskey manufacturers in one small area."

It is understood that the distilling equipment is due to arrive in October.
