New Distillery in Dingle

Dingle has new artisan distillery that has set up at Milltown just at the western end of the town (It's in the old Fitzgerald's saw mill)

The venture, which is only one of four working distilleries on the island of Ireland, and the only artisan distillery, is producing just two casks per day and these are being sold under a "founding fathers" scheme. It is owned by the same people behind the Porterhouse brew pub in Dublin

The plan is to produce a quality single malt, and I understand that it will facilitate visits in the near(ish) future

Sounds fun!! I'd love to visit on our next trip down that way.

A Dingle Whiskey Ice Cream could be interesting too :o)

They appear to be on a winner, I am sure that it will take off as an investment opportunity. I have heard that the head distiller comes from one of the best Scotch whisky distilleries and brings with him a good reputation.He certainly wouldn't have taken on this venture if he didn't think it would work.

Apparently they plan to produce vodka and gin using "local botanicals" too,

The visitor centre will be part of Phase 2 of the development which will not be started until 2014, I believe.

However, if you poke your head in while passing next June, there might be something to see. Certainly the three great copper stills look very impressive
