Slane Distillery in Co. Meath has been included in the Lonely Planet list of world’s most unique distilleries
The Lonely Planet review states:
“Sure, whiskey is great. But whiskey in a castle? Better. In 2017, the Slane Irish Whiskey Distillery opened in the 250-year-old horse stables of the Slane Castle, home to the Conyngham family since 1703.
Utilizing barley grown on their own land – which you’ll be able to examine in various stages on the tour – the family-owned distillery creates a unique triple-casked whiskey you’ll taste at the end.
Stop by the beautiful distillery bar to sit in booths made from former horse corrals and order one of the signature Irish coffees (the secret is vanilla demerara syrup and Slane whiskey). Or opt for an additional tour of the main castle with a pit-stop at Browne’s Bar, decorated with photos and ephemera from the famous Slane concerts that have happened on the castle grounds since 1982. The massive shindigs have played host to everyone from U2 to Madonna to the Rolling Stones.”
