THE

WHISKEY

“As distiller, the decisions that I make impart huge influence over the spirit produced. Cereals, yeast, flow rates, temperatures, production timings, cuts, wood, time – so many choices and decisions affect the way that spirit forms and matures into whiskey.

It takes many years to develop awareness, but the shared enjoyment and personal satisfactions offered up by this craft are countless.”

Our whiskey will initially be available from the Distillery Visitor Centre. 

FERCULLEN

FERCULLEN, our first brand name, is inspired by the ancient territorial name given to the lands on which the Powerscourt Estate is located, the Distillery will shortly release its opening whiskey expressions under the brand name FERCULLEN.

Distilled and laid down as new spirit by Master Distiller Noel Sweeney many years ago, the release of these rare Irish whiskeys marks an exciting phase in the development of Powerscourt Distillery
