Titanic Dock and Pumphouse,
Opening 31 March 2023
Walk in the footsteps of the dockworkers and explore the site where Titanic last rested on dry ground before her maiden voyage. Visitors to Thompson Dock and Pump house will clock in, see the workings of our distillery, and hear the story of Belfast’s whiskey tradition; why it disappeared and how it has returned to the home of Titanic Distillers.
In the days before prohibition, Belfast was once the largest producer of Irish Whiskey on the island of Ireland. Whiskey has played an important part in the history of our industrial city, and now after almost 90 years, distilling returns to Belfast, at the home of Titanic Distillers.
This is a revival of the great distilling tradition and brings Belfast back to the forefront of Irish Whiskey production, while at the same time telling the story of an industrial past when Belfast led the way globally – not just in shipbuilding but across many areas of industry, manufacturing, and innovation.
