The Kilbeggan Distillery is the oldest licensed distillery in Ireland, retaining its li
cense to distill whiskey on the same site and in the
same buildings for over 256 years.
The distillery is situated on the banks of the River Brosna, with plenty of access to the three natural ingredients needed for whiskey distillation – water, grain and turf. In fact, we still use the water from River Brosna to make our whiskey today.
Dating back to 1757 a visit today lets you discover real artisanal Irish whiskey distilling at its finest. See for yourself the traditional method of mashing in oak mash tuns, fermenting
in Oregon pine vats, and the new Kilbeggan malt spirit flowing from the 180 year old pot still.
A tour of Kilbeggan Distillery will take you back in time to discover how Irish whiskey was made during John Locke’s ownership of the distillery during the 19th century before bringing you into the present where you can hear, smell and taste Kilbeggan® Irish whiskey as it is made today. The perfect marriage of past and present makes Kilbeggan Distillery an authentic Irish experience not to be missed.
