Irish Distillers has announced plans for a major redevelopment of the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin, to the tune of €11m. The company says its new-look home will strengthen Ireland’s growing whiskey tourism industry, which currently attracts more than half a million visitors every year.

“This investment marks an importnat moment in the history of Jameson,” said Jean-Christophe Coutures, Chairman and CEO of Irish Distillers. “We have grown up on Bow Street in the heart of Smithfield, and we’ve always felt privileged to share our home with the world. Since we opened our doors in 1997 we’ve welcomed more than four million whiskey lovers through our door.

“Now,” Couture continued, “we’ve enlisted the world’s best ‘experience designers’ and complemented that with a 100 percent Irish contracting team, who will work together to deliver on our vision.”

Long-standing general manager of the Old Jameson Distillery Ray Dempsey also cited unforgettable experiences as an inspiration in his work. “From John Jameson’s first steps into this building in 1780, we’ve focused on his ambition to create unforgettable experiences. When we next open our doors, the world will see what makes our whiskey loved the world over.”

The distillery, in the historic Smithfield area of Dublin’s north inner city, will close on August 31st and officially reopen in March of next year.
