The Tullamore D.E.W. Distillery Experience tells the tale of a legendary liquid with 192 years of history. The grain to glass distillery spans 58 acres where whiskey is milled, mashed, fermented, distilled, matured and bottled, all on one site. Eleven million litres of whiskey are produced here each year, making Tullamore D.E.W. and its distillery one of the finest examples of Ireland’s whiskey renaissance.
During the distillery experience, visitors will sip and savour an Irish coffee on arrival, walk the still house floor, feel the warm embrace of heat from the bubbling stills and taste the world’s second largest Irish whiskey brand’s award winning whiskeys.
One of the breath taking parts of the tour takes place in the live maturation warehouse. Nestled amongst a sea of barrels stacked from floor to ceiling, is Ireland’s only custom built warehouse snug. In the Secret Snug, visitors will get to “dip the dog” and taste whiskey direct from the cask, whilst 50,000 barrels with over 10 million litres of whiskey mature around them. The aroma in the air is pure magic.
At the end of the tour, visitors will get the chance to “Be the Blender” by blending and bottling their own unique whiskey to buy and take away. This state of the art innovation brings personalised whiskey to a whole new level.
