Production at the Kilbeggan Distillery in Ireland ceased in 1957, but the first new whiskey to be distilled since then was unveiled late last week.

The Kilbeggan Distillery Reserve Malt is produced from the oldest pot still in the world which dates back to 1830, while the distillery itself was established in 1757 and is the oldest distillery in the world.

The launch also marked the unveiling of the recently-rebranded Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey. Currently sold in 35 international markets, the Kilbeggan brand is Cooley’s flagship blended whiskey. The rebranded Kilbeggan is being rolled out in Germany and the US with other markets following suit over the coming months.

This will be followed by the release of a range of brand extensions including Kilbeggan 18 Year Old.
