Set against the backdrop of the Great Sugarloaf Mountain and drawing from an underground lake of pure water that lies beneath the Estate, Powerscourt sets the perfect stage for distilling Irish whiskey.
Everything from grain intake, milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling, cask filling and maturation takes place here. The visitor centre provides a tremendous environment to learn about all these processes while taking in also the rich local history and natural beauty of this location.
The new visitor centre is located in the Old Mill House on Powerscourt Estate. Dating back to the 1730s, the original building has now been faithfully restored and extended to accommodate visitor facilities adjoining the production area. The visitor centre is home to an intimate AV theatre, six carefully appointed tasting rooms, a gift shop and café bar with seating areas.
Distillery tours last 50 minutes and offer deep insights into all aspects of whiskey production. Distillery and Maturation Warehouse tours take longer and include a visit to the on-site filling and maturation facilities. Both tours include whiskey tastings of Powerscourt’s recently released Fercullen Whiskey expressions.
