The Tullamore Distillery is an Irish whiskey distillery located in Tullamore, County Offaly, Ireland. Built by William Grant & Sons at a cost of €35 million, the distillery officially opened in September 2014.[1] It is the first new distillery to have been constructed on a greenfield site in Ireland in over 100 years, and the first to operate in Tullamore since 1954.[1]

Construction of the distillery is proceeding on a phased basis.[2] When first constructed, the distillery initially had the capacity to produce up to 1.8 million litres of pot still and malt whiskey per annum using four pot stills.[3] However, provision has been made for the installation of a further two pot stills in the distillery, which would double this capacity to 3.6 million litres per annum.[3] Following an additional €25 million investment, a grain distillery and bottling plant were added in 2017.[4] The installation of a grain distillery means that the distillery can now produce all three components (pot still, malt, and grain whiskey) of its Tullamore D.E.W. blended whiskey on-site.[4]

In 1829, the Old Tullamore Distillery was established in Tullamore. In the late 1800s, the General manager, and later owner of the distillery, Daniel E. Williams, launched a whiskey named Tullamore D.E.W., whose name was taken from his initials, D.E.W. Although the whiskey gained significant success, the distillery later closed in 1954 having suffered financial difficulties.[citation needed] However, the brand was kept alive.

In 2010, William Grant & Sons purchased the brand, the second largest Irish whiskey brand globally, from its then owners, the C&C Group.[5] At the time, Tullamore D.E.W. was produced under contract by Irish Distillers at the Midleton Distillery in County Cork.[2]

As expansion of the brand was limited by their capacity to obtain spirit from Irish Distillers, William Grant & Sons opted to construct their own distillery in Tullamore, the brand's original home.[citation needed]
