Old Jameson Distillery for €11m revamp

Irish Distillers plans an €11 million redevelopment of its Old Jameson Distillery in Smithfield.

The new-look Jameson brand home is likely to strengthen Ireland’s growing whiskey tourism industry which currently attracts 600,000 tourists a year.

To facilitate the refurbishment, the Old Jameson Distillery will close on August 31st to officially reopen in March 2017.

Jameson’s visitor experience has welcomed over four million people since it opened in 1997 and the company has enlisted the world’s best ‘experience designers’, complimenting this with a 100% Irish contracting team.

Construction work will begin in September with approximately 100 people employed as part of the redevelopment work.
