Dublin has deep historical roots with world class Irish whiskey. Official records have revealed that Irish Whiskey production grew to some four million gallons in the 1820s. Of course, this did not account for the illegal Irish Whiskey that was also being distilled without permission.
At one time, close to 40 distilleries were in operation in Dublin, nestled in a one mile radius better known as the “Golden Triangle.”
The four big distillery players at the time were George Roe and Company, John Power and Son, William Jameson and Company and John Jameson and Son. By the 19th century Irish Whiskey reached global appreciation as it was recognised as the premier whiskey due to its unique taste and smoothness.
Today, the Golden Triangle in the heart of The Liberties is making a remarkable revival. Pearse Lyons Distillery is proud to be part of the rejuvenation of this historic area of Dublin city.
