The Powerscourt Distillery was designed and constructed by Scottish engineering group Forsyths, one of the world leaders in the supply of distillation equipment. It is a classic 3 pot still distillery, allowing Powerscourt to distil malt and pot still whiskey using both classic and traditional triple and double distillation methods. At full capacity the distillery has the potential to distil over 3 million of bottles of whiskey per year, or lay down the equivalent of 40 barrels of spirit per day.
The Irish whiskey category is one of the fastest growing premium spirit categories in the world. It can be broken down into four distinct styles of whiskey: Grain Whiskey, Malt Whiskey, Pot Still Whiskey and Blended Whiskey.
At Powerscourt Distillery we distil both Malt and Pot Still whiskeys in our distillery, and have released Malt, Grain and Blended Irish whiskeys under our Fercullen brand. All of our aged whiskey stock was carefully hand chosen by Founding Master Distiller and Blender Noel Sweeney, to allow us to release whiskey while we waited for our distilled liquids to reach maturity.
