The new visitor centre is home to an intimate AV theatre, six carefully appointed tasting rooms, a gift shop and café bar with bright seating areas serving fresh gourmet sandwiches and home-made soups, teas and freshly ground coffees. Mindful restoration by Ormonde Builders, local architect Martin Noone, designers Millimetre Design and fit-out by DDC Shopfit has incorporated modern facilities in a design that respects the history of the Old Mill building.
To the outside, the original bell that was used to herald a daily lunch break to workers in distant fields has been retained, while inside, the Old Mill water turbine has been preserved under a glass floor as part of the visitor experience.
A number of tour offerings and whiskey tasting classes are available such as; Distillery (50 minutes); Distillery and Maturation Warehouse (75 minutes) and Pegasus (90 minutes) tours. Our guided tours offer an insight into all aspects of whiskey production.
