Established in 1757, the old Locke’s Distillery has recently been restored and, after a 50 year closure, whiskey production began here once more in 2007.
The Kilbeggan Distillery Experience is open to the public and, although not the smoothly commercial operation that might be expected by visitors who have also been to some of the longer established distillery visitor centres, is well worth a visit. Both guided and self-guided tours are available, with tastings.
The first release of Kilbeggan Distillery Reserve Malt was in June 2010 and product is now available from retail outlets and can also be purchased from the distillery.
The Pantry restaurant offers refreshments on site and meals can be provided for groups by arrangement.
