Tullamore Dew

Tullamore D.E.W. Distillery Experience

From March 2022, the Tullamore D.E.W. Distillery in Tullamore, Co. Offaly became the new home of the Tullamore D.E.W. Visitor Experience and will host all future brand and whiskey tours.

This means that the old visitor centre at Bury Quay in Tullamore is closed from 31st Oct 2020.

Distillery Experience

Experience a day like no other as you go ‘behind the scenes’ of the state-of-the-art Distillery. Explore the home of Tullamore D.E.W. from distillation to maturation while meeting some of the characters who work on-site every day. Sip an Irish coffee, feel the warm embrace of heat from the bubbling stills and inhale the rich whiskey aromas from the 50,000 oak casks that lie sleeping in the maturation warehouse. Visit Ireland’s only custom built warehouse snug and discover the art of blending before savouring three of our award winning whiskeys.

The man behind the D.E.W.

The first production of the whiskey now known as “Tullamore Dew” was in 1829. The name came from the initials of the man who later owned the distillery and took this produce to the rest of the world - Mr. Daniel Edmond Williams. Daniel E. Williams was certainly made of the rare stuff. His earliest days in the distillery were spent shovelling malted barley; his night spent sleeping in the hayloft. He was the ultimate self-made man, propelling himself quickly through the ranks. In 1873 he became General Manager and ultimately owner of the distillery. Single-handedly, he began to turn a good whiskey great. Some time later, this accomplished, he proudly marked every bottle from the Tullamore Distillery with the initials D.E.W.
