William Grant and Sons Ltd. announced that the company officially opened its new E35 million whiskey distillery in Tullamore, Co Offaly, on September 17, 2014. The Tullamore Distillery is the first new distillery to be constructed on a greenfield site in Ireland in over 100 years and is one of the most significant investments to date in the resurgent Irish whiskey sector. It is also one of the projects undertaken by William Grant and Sons. Located on a 58 acre site in Clonminch on the outskirts of Tullamore, the Distillery draws on the finest natural spring water from the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Tullamore Distillery will be capable of producing the equivalent of 1.5 million cases of Tullamore D.E.W. annually. The distillery was built to meet the growing international demand for Tullamore D.E.W., which is now the second Irish whiskey in the world. The Distillery features four hand crafted copper stills, designed to resemble the original stills from the old Tullamore distillery, six brew house fermenters each with a 34,000 litre capacity and warehouse storage for 100,000 casks.
