THE

DISTILLERY

A UNIQUE DISTILLERY IN AN EXTRAORDINARY LOCATION

Formerly the hub of all farming activity on the Estate, the Old Mill House is being faithfully restored and extended to help accommodate the distillery’s development. Steeped in history and built using local Wicklow granite, the bell that adorns the northern west wall was originally used to herald the daily lunch break to workers in distant fields.

Being one of the older buildings on the Estate, it boasts an ancient water mill deep in its foundations.

The Old Mill House Bell

Three custom-designed copper pot stills form the Distillery centrepiece. Uniquely shaped by skilled craftsmen, these copper stills are made in much the same way as they were in the 1800’s when the Mill House was in daily use. Powerscourt Distillery has been custom designed and commissioned by Forsyths, a 5th-generation family owned business from Scotland who have been manufacturing distillery equipment since the 1890’s.

The Powerscourt Distillery Visitor Centre includes six individual tasting rooms, gift shop and café facilities.
