Deep in the heart of Ireland, on the banks of the Grand Canal, stands a 19th Century Bonded Warehouse. Within the walls of this great structure, a legend lives. It's where one man built an empire on a determined dream, where a whiskey making tradition blossomed and grew, where a founder learnt his trade and crafted an Irish whiskey worthy of his name. Like our whiskey, the Visitor Centre is for those who want a taste of the exceptional. It's for those who search for hidden depths, embrace discovery and put their faith in the genuine.You'll begin with the birth of a brand and end with it in your glass - your very own personal tasting session. See how we use malting to trick our barley into growing, hear the tales of the distillery's early workers and find out how the angels always get their share. Our full tour takes in every step of the artisan craft of whiskey making, each stage a story, told through captivating audio-visual media and the good old Irish charm of our expert guides.
Tullamore Dew visitor centre is one of Ireland's best kept secrets, but one that I am about to lift the lid on, or should I say bottle top! This is a great time for Whisky making in Co. Offaly as Whisky distilling has been brought back home to Tullamore after being away for almost six decades. I learned all of this plus much more whilst taking it has to be said, a fantastic tour at Tullamore Dew visitor centre, and I wouldn't recommend a trip to Co. Offaly without visiting this great attraction. If I am being completely honest, before writing this book, being a none drinker myself, I had never ever heard of this Whisky brand, but I now feel as though I know everything about this triple distilled nectar they call Tullamore Dew. Now owned by William Grant & Sons, who are Whisky making gods in Scotland, the brand is in great hands moving forward for next two hundred years.
