The facility in the Irish town of Tullamore, which has taken two years to complete, was officially opened by the country's agriculture, food, marine & defence minister Simon Coveney this week. The distillery, on a 58-acre site, has an annual production capacity of 1.5m cases.

Initially, the site will produce 511,000 nine-litre cases a year.

William Grant, which acquired the Tullamore brand from C&C Group in 2010, said the facility has been built “to meet the growing international demand" for the brand.

Stella David, William Grant & Sons' CEO, said: "This new facility will secure our future production demands for the rest of the Century as Irish whiskey embarks on its most exciting chapter yet.”  

Ireland is witnessing a swathe of investment in whiskey, with firms such as Teeling Whiskey Co, Walsh Whiskey and Dublin Whiskey Co all building new production sites.
