New Irish Distilleries
I have heard it a few times before, but apparently, John Teeling is still planning to fire up the Kilbeggan Distillery again and make traditional pure pot still whiskey before the end of the decade. This distillery is still powered by a waterwheel and is still in working order. They have the stills from the old Tullamore distillery. The whiskey will be triple distilled.
There was also a project called the Coola Mills distillery. They distributed literature about the plan and had a website, which has now disappeared.
And then there's the Cloonaughill distillery project, headed by Rionnan Walsh. I have no idea what has happened to this project. I've tried to find out, without success. Does anyone else know anything?
Anyway, there were to set up in Galway or Donegal, I think, and produce malt whiskey.
