Embark on an Irish whiskey odyssey, a tale of boom & bust and the different styles of Irish whiskey. Hear first-hand about the art of whiskey distilling and maturation whilst enjoying the perfect setting in which to taste it. Discover how this unrivalled location offers access to the best raw materials, including water from Powerscourt Waterfall and beautiful golden homegrown barley, an enviable environment, ideal for inspiring a new generation in craftsmanship on the estate.
Backdropped by the breathtakingly beautiful Wicklow Hills and Great Sugarloaf Mountain (O Cualann), The Powerscourt Distillery is found in one of Ireland’s most picturesque and frequently visited locations only 30 mins from Dublin.
The distillery offers a range of award-winning Single Malt, Single Grain and Blended Irish Whiskeys previously distilled by our former Master Distiller Noel Sweeney.
For visitors, modern distilling and maturation facilities accompany a well-appointed visitor centre. Experienced tour guides and production teams help to ensure an informative, entertaining and memorable experience.
Powerscourt Distillery released its first range of whiskies in 2018 under the name Fercullen which was once the name of the lands of Powerscourt and its surrounding areas. The products in the Fercullen whiskeys range consist of our flagship Fercullen 8 Year Old Irish Whiskey and 10 Year Old Single Grain. We have also a Fercullen 18-Year-Old Single Malt as well other limited releases and single cask opportunities. We will launch our first whiskey from the Powerscourt in 2022 as a limited release and standard releases from 2022 onwards.
At Powerscourt Distillery we are looking to expand our global distribution network and are looking for trade partners who may wish to represent our distillery in their territories.
